Oh, it actually is him. On the phone.
They're doing this little bit with code words. Pretty funny. "Hello Red Delicious."
Who was the call-in at WWDC this year?
Colbert: I've got a big problem with my title.
Colbert: I just don't think it's big enough to capture my role at Apple. How about supreme allied commander of super secrecy
Federighi says he's not sure
Colbert: If supreme commander was good enough for Ike, it's good enough for me. I'd also accept intergalactic chancellor
Code name for Tim Cook is "chairman honeycrisp." haha
Colbert: Get back to work. You know what I see when I look at my wrist? My wrist.
(he's joking about the fact Apple Watch isn't out yet)
Big applause for celebrity call-in from the crowd.
Federighi: Now about to play a joke video using AirPlay from Mac to Apple TV
Federighi: The best security you have is the one you're wearing on your wrist. (he's using Watch to flip through slideshow)
We're seeing a video from Phil Schiller about security. Shows some elaborate secret handshake to get into the Apple offices.
Oh man. Eddy Cue now has to do this handshake. He looks very uncoordinated and gets turned away. (joke of course).
Federighi: This is just a quick overview of the amazing new Yosemite release from its amazing design. ICloud drive.
(Cue is Apple's head of Internet services and software - the key deal broker for iTunes etc)
Yosemite OS X is available today
Federighi: It's available for free.
Very lighthearted vibe here today. In-joke videos, comedian call-ins, jokes about security and leaks.
Federighi: iOS 8.1 is available for download this Monday
that coincides with Apple Pay availability
Federighi: Finally iWork for OS X and iOS, available today. And also free.
Tim Cook steps back on stage
So far, all the OS X software updates, Yosemite and iWork, both free.
Cook: I'd like to now talk about iPad
Hardware-wise, looks like iPad is up first.
Cook: The iPad is a simple and magical device. It's always been a unique blend of simplicity and capability.
Cook: While beautiful on the outside since the very first one, it's had technology jam packed on the inside. Ultra-fast Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity. iSight cameras. The technology is jam packed in this incredibly thin and light package you can take with you everywher eyou go and use all day long
Cook: As we've packed more and more capabilities and performance in iPad, customers are using it in ways we couldn't image
Thanks to yesterday's accidental support doc posts, we know not to expect much (probably), but adding the fingerprint sensor is a big step for encouraging impulse purchases.
Cook: It's transfomring the way we work, the way we learn, the way we play. It's transforming the way we communicate
Cook: It's not surprising that we sold more iPads in the first 4 years than we sold of any product in our history.
