Lots of stuff for Devs, but maybe some cool macOS, iOS, watchOS, tvOS announcments, too.
 
Our mobile dev lead at work snatched the only ticket our org 'won' in the lottery, so he just texted me this (of course):

Game on in 45 minutes!

So apple is opening up Siri to devs and maybe iMessage for Android? Is an Alexa competitor in the pipeline too?

I am personally creeped out by an always on concierge device in my living room...they'll all learn about my plans to take over the world!

Siri is being opened for devs. No mention about iMessage for Android though.

I read somewhere that there were possible plans for iMessage for Android.

That has been rumored for a couple years. Maybe it will still launch later this year, but Apple is still quiet about it for now.

Anyone download the beta for iOS 10 yet? If so, thoughts? Likes, dislikes, bugs?

I have the iOS 10 profile installed, have not downloaded the update yet.

The public beta profile? If so, the first public beta drops in July.

I'm on the beta currently. Relatively stable so far; been on it since 4 pm EST yesterday. Definitely laggy with the animations on my 6 Plus, but it is very usable. Battery life seems normal, and performance seems the same aside from the laggy animations. Basically everything works, though.

I'm going to try it after wiping my phone and restoring it for International SIM unlock.

So far so good, but of course like any other developer beta some apps don't work properly. In this case, my Dunkin Donuts app won't render correctly. Thankfully I have my HTC 10 for that.

Nope. iMessage in particular is way ahead of anything else on Android.

I used iMessage a few times on my iPad. I really wasn't impressed in anyway. Now, I dont have an iPhone either. What would be the benefit of using it? I am looking for honest input on what it does that I am missing out on, I simply don't know what I don't know.

It's similar to Blackberry Messenger or Google Hangouts in that regard, just better. You can have cross platform conversations (iPad, iPhone, Mac) and share content without resorting to MMS. You also get audio and video calling using FaceTime (over the iMessage platform).

I use iMessage a lot, and am looking forward to the improvements.

 

I like the delivery/received confirmations, being able to see when the other person is typing, etc. (similar to Blackberry)  I also like that I can within the app send my current location or share it for a specified period of time with another iOS user. Handy when meeting up with friends so you don't have to keep asking where they're at.  Pictures send immediately (and I get confirmation) instead of dealing with the whims of MMS, which sucks on Sprint. iMessage's most important feature for me is being able to create and reply to messages from any of my devices. Send a message from my iPhone or iPad ,and then when I get to my desk get replies on my iMac. I'm looking forward to the weblink previews, larger emoji, etc.

So now that we can delete stock apps with iOS 10, does that mean that they are updated through the app store (hopefully more frequently) rather than through a system update?

 

Also, does anyone know if we can delete app caches now?

hangouts has been able to do the same things for a couple years at least in conjunction with google voice

 

that said, imessage integration and simple ease of use bests android/hangouts.

 

If google could standardize on hangouts/gvoice and make it mandatory/default for all android devices, along with streamlining and making 'just work', they could easily have parity or even something better than imessage/facetime.

    • The S21U was very spotty with connecting to 6E. It would only see it on a router reboot. I thought it was more the router than the S21U, however my laptop would solidly connect to the 6E network, so it must have been the S21U. Since I'm on WiFi7 with the S24U, I haven't kept track of it. I will flip over and check it out later. 
    • Wi-fi 6e missing (6 GHz on one of two ultras). Perhaps coming from an app?  Wifi analyzer can see the 6ghz, just can't see them to connect.  May try wifi reset, although communications reset could have been the source of this problem.  Others have reported it, so not an isolated issue. Edit: Fixed: Rebooted into safe mode. Wifi 6e worked. Normal boot back. No wifi 6e in available nerworks.  Unistalled Asus Router app. Checked for Wifi 6e being visible in wifi available networks. Nothing. Deleted Netgear Genie app. Then saw networks. of mine I had not connected to in wifi available networks. Forgot the desired 2.4&5&6 SSID that did not show 6E. Connected to it again. 6e now works.
    • I noticed today while I was out and about in Louisville that b30 has been widened back to 10x10. They reduced it to 5x5 back in Sept 2018 presumably due to satellite radio interference. Not sure how long ago the change happened but it couldn't have been too terribly long ago. I noticed the different earfcn in the neighbor list, I don't usually see b30 as pcc much but I wonder if that will change now. I locked my phone to b30 only on my drive home from work and noticed the new(old?) earfcn on every site, so it wasn't just a 1 or 2 site fluke. It also looks like they've been doing some fiber or other cabling work around the b2/b46 small cell nodes, I wonder if they are about to start adding c-band radios to those. 
    • Should trade it for some low-band there or elsewhere. AT&T dominates lowband.    
    • I checked existing spectrum holdings and selling 5x5 PCS to each of VZW and AT&T in Kauai would get them to 20x20 apiece there, which should make them happy. In Maui it makes more sense to sell 5x5 each of PCS and AWS to get VZW 20x20 AWS and AT&T 15x15 PCS. I figure it would be a sale rather than a swap, as neither of the other two have spectrum T-Mobile would want that's high-frequency enough to avoid the spectrum screen. Honestly, T-Mobile is strong enough in Hawaii from a capacity perspective that cutting down PCS/AWS holdings won't hurt, particularly in exchange for finally unlocking 2.5 (though in Maui I saw 140 MHz n41 regularly in September if I remember correctly).
