The best demo at WWDC 2021

The best demo at Apple's WWDC 2021 was Universal Control, a feature that lets you use your Mac's keyboard on an iPad and even a second Mac. It's a very clever little feature, but it is built on years of small iPad improvements.

    This feature(Universal control) is not like something which Apple does. Apple basically perfects a feature before it launches it but this looks a lot like a gimmick which is based on luck and a huge assumption

    I’ve been an Apple fan since the 80s and.. for the love of god.. I have no idea what people want Apple to do with the iPad. Final Cut? Xcode? Both of those experiences would be WORSE on the iPad. I know they will come to light one day, but I’m not really hearing any GOOD ideas about what Apple should do with the iPad. Those Pro features sound incredibly niche - as those same users have very powerful Macs ….

    Dudes, MICROSOFT GARAGE MOUSE WITHOUT BORDERS has existed for years, it's developed by Microsoft and it's free. It works flawlessly to share one mouse and keyboard across up to 4 devices. The same principle, move the mouse to the edge of the screen and it goes to the next machine. Also shared clipboard and copy/pasting files up to 100MB. Setup is really easy, install on machines, select on one NO and on other Yes and input the machine name and key. And easy peasy, use it.

    So Apple copied Synergy, Logitech Flow and dozens of similar apps that have existed for years, baked it into the OS and Verge reviewers are calling it "innovative" again, huh? I mean, Apple's implementation seems to be really nice, seamless and have it built-in in the OS probably makes it easier to use but come on... Innovative? Do we really need to get into the Apple hype?

    Although some of these features been around for a while now, for instance, sidecar was released in 2020 whereas on Windows, back in 2017, and drag and drop features combined with Logitech MX series, however, I will say the seamless drag and drop is very slick though along with the other functions combined. It's always so much better having native support!

    This is why you can't trust Verge reviewers. It is his JOB to a least be aware that this functionality existed FOR YEARS in other platforms (including the drag and drop files). Yet he is baffled by it and he is attributing it to Apple's ecosystem integration. Don't get me wrong. I think it's great that Apple implemented this feature. I'm not here making the "it's a copy" argument. I don't care who made it first. Also, because it is integrated into their OSes I'm sure it will be funcional and simple to use but c'mon....

    I have a MacBook Pro and an iPad Pro with trackpad and sometimes I'm starting to get confused about which gestures I can use on what device - I also have the instinct to touch my Mac's screen every now and then. I can see why Apple wants to keep iPadOS and macOS separated, but the closer they get, the more I think they need to create a consistent experience for basic functionalities to avoid moments of dissonance.

    I move image from ipad to macbook photoshop, so where is this image stored? In the ipod AND macbook pro.. why duplicate all this files? Let's say you want to edit image, should you edit on macbook or go back to ipad? If you edit on macbook then image is not same as on tablet.. you just mess up everything. But it's cool to move files from one location to another, but not to work in multiple device.
