Walkie-talkie mode. It’s pretty much exactly what it sounds like—you can now chat to friends on your watch as you would on a walkie-talking, pushing a button to contact them.

No more “Hey Siri.” To ask Siri questions, just raise your wrist and start talking.

Other updates. You can now listen to podcasts on your watch, interact with apps from notifications, and challenge friends to fitness competitions. Notifications from the same apps are now grouped together, like on iOS 12.

Student IDs. Apple is introducing the ability to add student IDs to Apple Wallet on the iPhone and Apple Watch. You’ll be able to pay for meals and laundry at schools this fall, including Duke, Temple, and Alabama, with more universities on the horizon.

tvOS updates

Apple introduced a few minor updates to its Apple TV software, including Dolby Atmos sound, automatic 4K HDR video feeds, and more live TV news and sports channels. Apple is also partnering with cable providers around the world to use Apple TV boxes to replace their cable boxes, including Spectrum in the US.

Nothing else

Unlike last year’s conference, which was chock full of hardware updates, Apple had no new hardware to show off at all. Hopefully this means we’ll see the next iPad Pro, and any updates to its Apple TV, Apple Watch, and other devices later this year.
