Wow. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Good morning. And welcome to WWDC 2019. It is so great to be here with you today in San Jose. And we are so inspired by the millions of incredible Apple developers around the world.
Your dreams and your passion and dedication to fulfill those dreams comes across so clearly in the apps that you create, apps that enrich the lives of millions of people around the world. You make the world a better place and that is why we are here this morning.
So, welcome to WWDC.
WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) is more vibrant than ever with attendees from more countries and more first-time attendees than ever. In fact, for most of you in the audience this morning, this is your first WWDC, so, welcome.
Apple makes the best products in the world, products that integrate world class hardware with world class software and a growing collection of world class services to deliver experiences unlike anyone else out there.
In March, we held an event to talk about our services and introduce you to some brand-new Apple services. We launched Apple News+ which offers a beautifully designed experience for more than 300 popular magazines, digital publications and newspapers. There is no service out there quite like this. I love it.
And if you haven’t tried it, I encourage you to do so.
We also announced Apple Arcade, the world’s first game subscription service for mobile, desktop and living room featuring over 100 new games from some of the most innovative game developers in the world. Apple Arcade will be available later this year.
And we introduced Apple Card which will completely reinvent the credit card experience. Apple Card will be available this summer.
And we announced Apple TV+ which is a new home for the world’s most creative storytellers.
Now, while the service doesn’t launch until fall, we thought it would be really fun this morning to share with you a sneak peek of just one of our upcoming show from Ron Moore, the executive producer behind Battle Star Galactica and Star Trek. With his new series, Ron wanted to take us on a journey in which the space race was a little different than you might remember it. And it has never ended.
So, let’s take a first look at For All Mankind.
I believe that this nation should commit itself to landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth.
After thousands of years gazing up in the heavens and dreaming of this day, a man is about to set foot on the moon.
Across the world, people wait with bated breath.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is a live signal. There he is. The shock across the nation at this event is just indescribable.
The Soviet cosmonaut has become the first to set foot on the moon.
I thought it was about being first. It turns out the stakes are much bigger than that.
Get back to work. We are still in this thing. Change of plans, gentlemen. There is water on the moon. This race will be ours to fight for and to win. And we are not stopping there. Moon Lab.
We need to accelerate the base. You are going to be an astronaut candidate? No, I’m going to be an astronaut. We will go to Mars, Saturn, the stars, the galaxy.
Drifting right. Watch it. Eagle, this is Houston. Do you copy?
This is not the end of the race. We must keep our eyes to the future. Three, two…
Wasn’t that great? I’ve gotten an early look at the entire season and I loved it, and I think you are going to too. We can’t wait to show you this series and our other original shows coming up this fall.
Now, Apple TV+ will be available on the Apple TV app which is across all of your screens including your Smart TVs. And, of course, the best way to enjoy this content is with AppleTV 4K which offers an immersive cinematic experience delivering the highest picture quality of any streaming device out there.
Apple TV is powered by tvOS, and tvOS is just one of the software platforms that we are here to talk about today. So, let’s get going.
I’m excited to share with you this morning how we are going to make tvOS even more entertaining and more personal. We completely redesigned the Home screen, making Apple TV come to life from the moment that you turn it on with full screen previews of the best TV shows and newly released movies.
Apple TV is designed to be used for the whole family, but we wanted to make it even more personal. Today, the Up Next list has a mix of shows for everyone in the home, but when you sit down to watch TV, you want to see the shows that you love. So, we are introducing multiuser support for tvOS.
Now, everyone in the home gets their own Up Next list plus personalized recommendations for new shows and movies to enjoy. Now, and it’s easy to switch between family members using the all new Control Center. It works just like you would expect it to.
TvOS also delivers Apple Music with over 50 million songs and curated music video play lists. And now, with multiuser support, everyone in the home gets their own personalized music experience. You are going to be able to see lyrics to your favorite songs in sync with the music. This is really cool. This is the best music experience on television.
Now, Apple Arcade is also going to look amazing on the AppleTV 4K this fall. Playing great games like Ocean Horn 2, of course, is even better with great game controllers so we are extending support to two of the best and most popular game controllers available. Xbox 1S. Yes. And PlayStation DualShock 4. Yeah.
I think there is a few PlayStation fans out there.
Finally, let’s talk about our beautiful screensavers. We have already captured some of the most stunning locations around the globe and even some from outer space through our collaboration with the International Space Station.
This year, we are going under the sea. Oh, it’s awesome. We’ve partnered with BBC Natural History unit to shoot beautiful 4K HDR footage, taking you to places that few people have ever experienced before.
So, that’s the new tvOS. More personal and more entertaining than ever.
