Tim Cook – CEO, Apple Inc.

Good morning. Good morning. Good morning. Thanks for joining us and welcome to San Francisco. Welcome to WWDC 2015. Although we may not have any – thank you – high flying trapeze acts, we do have a lot of great things to talk about this morning. This developer conference continues to be the epicenter of change for not only Apple but the industry.

This is our 26th WWDC. We have attendees today from over 70 countries and 80% are here for the very first time. This is our most global conference ever. And a special shout-out to our 350 scholarship winners. These guys are unbelievable. I spent some time with them yesterday. Our youngest scholarship winner is a 12-year-old girl from New York. She is going to have a fantastic future ahead.

We’ve got over a hundred sessions planned for you and over 150 labs so that you can get your hands on our latest technologies. And we’ve got over a thousand Apple engineers to answer just about any question that you might have.

Now we had a lot more people that would have liked to have been here this morning but unfortunately we just can’t fit anymore in as you can tell. And so for the first time we’re not only live streaming the keynote but we’re live streaming 30 sessions of the conference as well.

Before we get right to the show, I’d like to bring up something that I saw on the news just a few days ago. This Brandon Moss of the Cleveland Indians and he hit his 100th career home run last Tuesday. Obviously it’s a huge milestone if you are baseball player, not a lot of people do this. And you can imagine how much that ball would mean to him to have it. But it turns out the ball was hit into the Indians bullpen, and his teammates decided to play a bit of a prank on him. They decided to hold it for ransom. And this is the list of things they asked for. Apple watches, iPads, Mac Book Airs, iPhones, it’s unbelievable. It’s a shopping list at the Apple Store.

Now Brandon would have had to raid an Apple store to get that ball back. That didn’t seem quite right to us. And so what we’re going to do is we’re going to pay the ransom. And I have the ball right here. We’re giving the ball to Brandon and we’re going to give everything his teammates asked for, so everybody is happy. Congratulations Brandon on 100th home runs and good luck on the next 100.

Now we’ve got a jam-packed morning for you. We’re going to get started with OS X. We’re bringing a whole bunch of new great capabilities to the Macintosh. And next, we’ve got a great update for iOS, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system. And today we’re bringing native apps to Watch with a new version of the watchOS which gives the developers even more time to create even greater apps for the Watch that will change the world.

Now all three of these ecosystems together provide incredible opportunities for developers and unbelievable possibilities for users. So we’re very excited about this. There is a lot here and so I’m going to dispense with my normal updates other than to tell you everything is going great.

And I’d like to bring out my friend and colleague Craig Federighi.

Craig Federighi – SVP, Software Engineering, Apple Inc.

Thank you, Tim. Good morning. Wow! It’s fantastic to be with you here at WWDC. The team has been doing some amazing work this year and I’m thrilled to be able to share it with you today.

We’re going to start with OS X. Now our current release Yosemite is a big bold beautiful release with a gorgeous new UI and breakthrough features like Continuity that let you work across your devices like never before.

Now the adoption rate for Yosemite is just incredible. In fact, over 55% of active Mac users are running our latest update and this is just unprecedented in the history of our industry. In fact, Yosemite has the fastest adoption rate for any PC operating system ever. So thank you.
