Drag and Drop has arrived in iOS 11! Learn the fundamentals behind the new iOS Drag and Drop - architecture and APIs. This session will go over the design goals, architecture and key components of the API to allow you to quickly adopt Drag and Drop in your App.

Drag and drop seems like a boring feature, but on iOS 11 and the iPad, it's actually quite interesting and implemented in a novel way. This WWDC session starts with a demo, showing off how you can use multiple fingers to drag multiple things, combine different dragged objects, while still being able to interact with other touch UI elements. Sadly, Apple decided to cripple drag and drop on the iPhone, restricting it to only being able to drag and drop within a single application.

WTF Apple? You want to reach the widest audience possible, yet you restrict your promotional video to people who already own iDevices?

Video from Apple's World Wide Developer Conference, hosted on, targeted at iOS developers only viewable on Apple devices, which said developers need to have already. These videos are not intended as generic promotional videos. Do you see a plain white background and Jony Ive talking about things being magical in it?
