Go Go Go! Submission for both iOS 12 and macOS Mojave apps has been enabled with the Xcode 10 GM release that arrived directly after Wednesday's event. I can't wait for all the new Siri activities that'll surely start appearing with these updates! ๐Ÿค–

It does look like it's not yet possible to submit apps that include the new complication APIs though, but who is crazy enough to have those ready only a few hours after they were announced? ๐Ÿค”

I won't talk much about the new hardware as you've undoubtedly read a million words on that already. The only thing I'll say is that as someone who has started taking my health much more seriously in the last year, the new watch was what stood out to me. The general improvements are fantastic, and AFib detection and ECG are incredible features. The AFib detection is also a great example of how something that we first saw as a ResearchKit project has now fed into the core operating system. This is fantastic work from Apple and I still believe HealthKit has great potential to change the world of medicine even further. I do hope they get the necessary approvals to roll out these features outside the US though! I'm lucky that my heart is doing ๐Ÿ‘Œ for now, but I'd still like the watch be able to keep an eye on it!

I had no hesitation in ordering a new watch (and phone!) as the pre-orders opened this morning, even if it was from a slightly unusual location. ๐Ÿ˜‚
