As it’s less than a month to the virtual WWDC, it’s time for an Apple/WWDC wish list.
On the MacOS-next side of things:
- AV1 support baked in (CoreVideo and wherever else it’s needed).
- APFS idle-time dedup.
- January’s ‘Pro’ mode rumours coming to fruition.
- And it’s equal and opposite ‘super battery saver’ mode.
- Time Machine revamp/APFS based time machine.
- Internet Time Machine.
- A BetterTouchTool clone. The touch bar remains a very expensive white elephant, this may make it less of a failure for most.
On the iOS side:
- Options for simultaneous multi lens pictures/video in default camera app.
- Raw photos option in default camera app.
- Option to replace default protocol handlers.
- AV1 support.
- A light field camera. This would link well with the LiDAR scanner that’s in the most recent ‘iPad Pro’.
Not in a million years but I still want:
- Aperture 4 with local AI powered object recognition, smart photo manipulation/editing, multi drive support and highly configurable iCloud storage options.
