I think you're both onto something!Modern Language + Modern DB + Modern UI == My Happiness!My Happiness == it's easy to keep track of my stuff!I suspect, rather than extend CoreData -- Apple will replace it with a scalable FoundationDB -- and the constructs will be built into Swift and Storyboards.KV pairs (hashes/dictionaries) are integral to OSX and iOS (Xcode) -- tho, some of the implementation is kludgey and showing its age.Here, Apple has the opportunity to address a...
I think the key to all this is the battery power/requirement of the iDevice being tracked -- with these two extremes:a hiker carrying an iPhone with no spare batterya vehicle carrying an iPhone plugged into a power sourceIn the first case, the app running on the tracked iPhone would periodically fire up the [power hungry] GPS and AWiFi radios to get a reasonably-accurate GPS location fix.

To me, research kit was the big announcement, today ... it will improve the lives of everyone! WTG, Apple -- making it open source. The new MB was impressive ... as were some of the Apple Watch demos -- making and receiving voice phone calls, for one. I got the impression that something planned was cut at the last minute ...no big close, and an odd length for the total event. Kevin Lynch, using the Apple Watch to remotely open his garage door was eerily familiar ... ...
Who will be first to abandon CurrentC for Apple pay?
