Cursor now gets nice and big when you first move trackpad.
"Brought other great features to the system."
"First task is finding the curser. Do that little shake wheel I do and there it is, comes out to greet you."
Made big enhancements to the apps you use most and we've made some real great advancements on how you manage windows on the system, Federighi says.
El Capitan. You commenters noticed it correctly!
OS X El Capitan is the name of the new OS
I know nothing about California geography, so the "OS X name" suspense is lost on me.
"In typical California fashion, they started with a project kickoff meeting (shows image of people in a hot tub).
OS X time. Touting how OS X has fastest adoption rate of any PC operating system

"Wanted to build on Yosemite. The only great question was what to call it."
"Yosemite has the fastest adoption rate for any PC operating system ever," Federighi says
He shows chart that only 7% of people are using latest Windows.
"Our current release Yosemite is a big, bold release. ... The adoption rate for Yosemite is just incredible. Over 55% of active Mac users."
Federighi is seen as a rising star at Apple, and he oversees both iOS and Mac OS X software. He took on the role in late 2012 after Cook fired iOS head Scott Forstall following Apple’s Maps fiasco. Federighi dominated WWDC this year, spending more time on stage than everyone else, combined. He always wears a bright blue shirt and once jokingly referred to himself -- in a nod to his silver hair -- as “Hair Force One.”
HUGE cheers for Craig. He's very well liked and is pretty funny.
"There's a lot here. I'm going to dispense with my normal updates other than to tell you everything's going great. I'd like to bring out my friend and colleague, Craig Federighi."

Native apps to Apple Watch...new version of Watch OS, too.

"We're giving the ball to Brandon and we're going to give everything his teammates asked for so everyone is happy," Cook says.
"Brandon would have had to raid an Apple store to get the ball back. That didn't seem right to us, so we're going to pay the ransom," Cook says. He actually has the baseball.
They asked for a bunch of Apple devices, including watches and iPads.
Cleveland Indians players...only dream of Apple products.
"You could imagine how much that ball would mean to him to have it. Turns out it was hit into the Indians bullpen. Teammates decided to play a trick. Held it for ransom"
"Brandon Moss of the Cleveland Indians hit 100th career home run last week," Cook says.
Young scholarship winners cheering loudly to my left.
"For the first time, not only live streaming the keynote but live streaming over 30 sessions of the conference as well," Cook says
over 1,000 apple engineers are here to answer questions
Youngest scholarship winner is a 12-year-old girl from New York, Cook says
There are 350 scholarship winners, and lots of them just screamed out (or someone did)
