Apple’s Fall Release Schedule

John Voorhees:

Apple announced a lot of dates today. Here’s a rundown of all the dates mentioned in the keynote[…]

Federico Viticci:

iOS/iPadOS 13 features coming “later this fall” (not Sept. 30th)

- AirPods audio sharing
- HomeKit Secure Video & routers
- iCloud Drive folder sharing
- HomePod/AirPlay 2 in scenes & automations
- Image Capture API
- Screen Time communication limits
- Announce Messages w/ Siri

Federico Viticci:

This split iOS/iPadOS release could get a bit messy. For example:

- If you upgrade to iOS 13 (iPhone) and switch Reminders to the new format, it’ll stop syncing with iOS 12 (iPad)
- Shortcuts: if you modify an existing one on iOS 13, it’ll break the format on 12

Juli Clover:

Code found in the golden master version of Xcode 11 confirms that Apple is working on an augmented reality headset of some kind, and perhaps planned to announce it at the event but scrapped the debut last minute.

9to5Mac’s Guilherme Rambo and developer Steve Troughton-Smith found that Xcode 11 features an ARDisplayDevice framework with references to codenamed Apple headsets that are in development, including Franc, Luck, and Garta (which pertains to HoloKit, a third-party device).

Steve Troughton-Smith:

The fact that ARDisplayDevice is in the iOS 13 public SDK (check the headers in Xcode!), not a private framework, makes it very clear that this head-mounted ARKit UX was supposed to launch in the iOS 13 timeframe. With iOS 13’s delays, very easy to see how that could get punted

Axel Kee notes a very rough edge in the Xcode 11 GM, which looks like it could have used some more time to bake.

I'm worried about how this will effect Reminders on macOS. As an audio production professional, I won't be able to upgrade to Catalina for a long time because 32-bit libraries are still deeply entrenched in the audio world.

[…] messy. As usual, you’ll find the relevant links and contributions on Michael Tsai’s blog (Apple’s Fall Release Schedule). If Steve Jobs were still alive™, I imagine he would be incredibly pissed about all this. And […]

I’m worried about how this will effect Reminders on macOS.

I’m guessing/hoping the same way Notes changed its format a few years back: you get asked whether you want to migrate, and it might even show you which of your Apple ID-connected devices would be affected. As far as I recall, that’s how it worked with Notes; it showed me that my old Mac wouldn’t be able to read them any longer.

As an audio production professional, I won’t be able to upgrade to Catalina for a long time because 32-bit libraries are still deeply entrenched in the audio world.

You might also be able to create an additional iCloud account for this.
