Day 1 of WWDC 2021: communication between devices
■ Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2021 started yesterday and during the Day 1 events, Apple introduced its new OS, including iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and MacOS Monterey.
■ The key focuses of iOS 15 are Staying Connected, Finding Focus, Using Intelligence and Exploring the World. Apple also released a new Apple Maps, AirPod functions and iCloud+.
■ Functions such as SharePlay, Universal Control and AirPlay, in our view, reaffirm that connectivity between devices and hardware is the key trend in the IoT era. This was also the concept promoted by HarmonyOS during the event on 2 Jun 2021.
■ Apart from hardware development, the OS for IoT products is a key focus in the TMT industry.
