Monday’s WWDC 2020 keynote was very polished and a little fast-paced for me. This year, the entire Worldwide Developers Conference is virtual due to COVID-19, and the presentations flowed seamlessly from presenter to presenter, leaving little time for someone drawing to catch a breath. I ended up with five pages of drawings in my notebook.
I sketched out the important new features coming in iOS 14, iPadOS 14, macOS Big Sur, watchOS 7 and more. For a quick visual recap of the highlights of the WWDC 2020 keynote, check out my sketchnotes below.

iOS 14 means a whole new iPhone
iOS 14 adds an App Library to help organize your Home screen, Widgets, Picture in Picture support, new Messages features and Translate, a new app to ease conversations with two people speaking different languages.
iPadOS, App Clips, Scribble and AirPods updates
I’m excited to try out Apple’s new Scribble feature on the iPad. iPadOS will be able to recognize handwritten text via the Apple Pencil in the Notes app and even in the search text field. Apple said it wants to make handwriting as powerful as typed text.
Apple Watch, Wind Down, Hand Washing and tvOS
The new Apple Watch features coming in watchOS 7 included sleep tracking. shareable watch faces and a handful of new workouts. (And don’t forget the COVID-19-fighting feature designed to prompt you to wash your hands the right way.)
macOS BigSur, Mac Catalyst and Safari
Apple really lavished some love on the Mac with macOS Big Sur.
Apple Silicon, Universal 2, Rosetta 2 and Virtualization
The switch from Intel chips to custom Apple Silicon marks yet another milestone for the Mac.
