The fine print of WWDC

WWDC 2015 keynote: The fine print

I enjoyed Dan Moren's piece over at Six Colours (sorry, have to use that spelling) about the fine print of the keynote.

Clear as mud. So it replaces iTunes in the Cloud, presumably? But not iTunes Match, because …

This is super weird. Do I have to have both services? I guess I'll find out.

I’m unclear on whether that means the phone itself will act as a card using NFC, or if you can simply top up your existing card using Apple Pay’s contactless payment.

I wondered the same thing.

The iPad productivity features rolled out today are truly fascinating, but here’s a question: how does the new “multitouch keyboard works as a trackpad” mesh with “better hardware keyboard support”? My first instinct says that they’re mutually exclusive.

I thought it was weird that they never showed using the keyboard in either app... I'd love to know, but I don't have an iPad Air 2 so I can't check it out.

You can AirPlay audio from “compatible” (presumably H.264 or other supported formats) videos in Safari without having to show your screen with AirPlay mirroring, or switching all of your audio output.

Nice! It always seems like too much to be mirroring the whole display while on iOS I can just share the video (that happens to be taking up the whole display).
