🥇 Regular Picks

HostPickScore
Myke Regular "More flexibility for app icon placement on the iPhone home screen" 1
Federico Regular "There are some design and navigation updates to the Settings app across multiple platforms" 1
Stephen Regular "There is no new hardware announced or released" 1
  • Was just "announced" but Stephen actually made it riskier to better fit his intent with the pick.
  • An announcement about Vision Pro in more countries doesn't make this wrong.
Myke Regular "Notification summaries are provided by a new AI system" 1
Federico Regular "There is a new system for changing the colors of icons on the home screen" 1
Stephen Regular "Apple mentions that it has created its own LLM" 1
  • Must be the term "large language model" or "LLM" in particular, but this could be in a session or the State of the Union keynote, not just the main event.

⚠️ Risky Picks

HostPickScore
Myke Risky "visionOS 2 has keyboard passthrough when in an environment and it works with any keyboard, not just the ones Apple makes" -1
Federico Risky "Apple shows a 'Siri Camera' (not official name) feature that lets you point the iPhone at something and use AI to understand what you're looking at" -1
  • Non-graded: this is also why the next iPhone will have a physical camera button
Stephen Risky "Apple previews a new visionOS feature that puts overlays over the camera passthrough with information about objects in view" -1
  • Was originally "app" instead of "feature".
