    "Swift new programming language"
    lol

    Its a new low level API named "metal" that's supposed to increase graphics performance greatly -- enough to port Unreal 4 to IOS supposedly.

    Apple would implement these features natively so ios 8 would nice for a better performance

    is this an iOS thread or Android?


    Android had all of the "features" a loooooooooong time ago.



    even the new Samsung Tizen is better than iOS.

    Seriously though, the updates are interesting. Only odd thing I can still see in Apple's strategy is iMessages. The service is nice and very integrated into iOS, but lacks a key feature: cross-platform compatibility. The US is probably the only market with a stable amount of iOS users, but the rest of the world is a completely different matter.

    But as always, WWDC is something not really focused on the consumer, but instead on the developers. Swift seems interesting and quite a few of my friends seem to want to try it out.
