Yep. With any app, and it is extremely inconvenient as spoiled as I am with how well Maps and Google Maps usually work here. I’ve had to decouple my Watch and Force it to cellular a couple of times this week to get working directions.

iOS 12 beta users: Have you seen GPS outages or spotty reception? Today in the car, both my iPhone X (beta 2) and iPad 10.5 (beta 1) had erratic GPS failures with both Apple Maps and Waze, failing to recognize heading properly and not updating position for 30+ seconds at a time.

I was banking on today since iOS 12 is a more modest upgrade. IOS 11’s iPad-specific features alone were a massive undertaking. There isn’t anything close to that this year. Looks like I was wrong.

Apple’s Maps outage yesterday shows that they still have a lot of growing up to do before becoming a cloud services powerhouse.

It has a flat-out amazing soundtrack. Michael Giacchino knocked it out of the park.

This is a rough read, but Levy’s last few paragraphs hit the nail on the head. Many of the companies out here today aren’t stopping to think about the social and humanist implications of evolving technology. And that is a scary path to go down.

Elon Musk: “Given that Tesla has never made an annual profit in the almost 15 years since we have existed, profit is obviously not what motivates us.” lol. Profit doesn’t motivate Apple either. Hasn’t prevented them from being the most profitable company in the world.

The Siri Intents extension point will mean your app can provide actions to Shortcuts (Workflow) that run entirely in the background — a Workflow API that doesn't rely on URL schemes 😍 Of course, big apps will want to integrate with Siri, so Shortcuts gets these plugins for free

We just had to part with one of ours recently, and it’s just a hard thing to lose a faithful companion’s unconditional love. Sorry for your loss.

iOS 12 seems significantly faster on my original iPad Air — you would never think this is a 5-year-old machine. I hope iOS devices are reaching a point where, like older Macs, performance is maintained throughout a longer lifetime. It's hard to imagine the A11 being left behind

True, and emphasizing these features if they would is a smart play. I just don’t think they can ignore the rest with the HomePod a real thing now. As with Maps, the voice part of Siri needs to be a good, solid, and functional product. It is too close to Maps 1.0.

We in the tech community know they are working on it via hires and acquisitions, but the public doesn’t. I’m sure something is happening, but some public acknowledgement would help. Just look at how much they have improved Maps over the last 5 years.

I definitely agree that it is progress. It’s just different progress. Siri needs a LOT of work on voice rec, speech context recognition, and basic Q and A. People don’t trust it at all in those areas anymore. It would be good to get a look at what they are doing to improve.

In a year all about stability and optimization, this would have been the perfect time for Apple to show us what they are doing behind the scenes. After the HomePod underlined Siri’s shortcomings and garnered negative feedback, I honestly expected they would address it on stage.

I’m excited to see where Shortcuts goes. However, I am also disappointed that Apple didn’t give any indication of what they are doing to improve Siri as a voice assistant. They have never had a “Maps” moment where they admitted there are problems and promised to fix them.

Complaining on the internet about how Apple's beta features are terrible is counterproductive and a little silly (they're betas, after all). If you don't like something, file a Radar. If something doesn't work, file a Radar. Complain to the right people, not the internet.
