  • Siri as a Service (3rd party integration)
  • Refactoring for Swift (in Xcode)
  • Announce date to sunset Obj-C
  • Xcode for iPad Pro


  • More voice command vocabulary. Something like AppleScript dictionaries?

  • Better accessibility hierarchy visualization tools built into Xcode
  • Additional accessibility tools for checking things like color contrast.
  • Improved dynamic font API, better support for font replacement in IB
  • Upgrade pricing/trials
  • Faster watch app loading. A way of deferring the most expensive parts?
  • Simulators and Xcode bots for Linux?
