tvOS 13 powers the most personal cinematic experience ever

My WWDC roundup will be delayed a week, thanks to my beloved Liverpool winning the Champions League, but it sounds like it was a great event. There's a lot to cover and there was hardware too but really there were two very exciting things for me.

Firstly, tvOS looks like it's getting some features it was sorely lacking and most importantly: profiles.

I love the Apple TV experience, but combining all the shows we watch into one feed made it a pain to use sometimes.

The second announcement, for which there is no Newsroom article, is Sign in with Apple. For native apps and the web. Looking forward to trying it out as a developer.

Update

An email blast from Apple highlighted that they do have a page on Apple Sign In. Not a lot of detail, but there's developer documentation which is a great start.

Why Apple needs iPad apps on the Mac

Apple News is one of the most infuriating apps and yet I found setting up automations in the Home app for Mac much easier than it is on the iPhone. It's inevitable that this is how things will go and to be honest I'm surprised it hasn't already happened.

Measles cases break 25-year record in the US

Not only has the record been broken, there are still six months of the year to go.

There aren't two sides to this argument, just get your kids vaccinated. Just go and read what Roald Dahl had to say about vaccinations.
