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.

Hardware wise:

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.
