Did this year's WWDC try to cram in too much?

Missed Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday? No worries. You can tune into the entire event courtesy of YouTube.

The event, which was held at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, was streamed live, but you needed an Apple device running Safari in order to catch it. Sites such as CNET also live-blogged the event from start to finish.

If you want to see it for yourself now, you can turn to YouTube where the entire event is up for viewing. This year, Apple packed a lot of announcements and demos into a little more than two hours.

Apple runs WWDC each year to attract developers and encourage them to creating apps for its mobile devices, Mac computers and Apple TV. The first day of the event is also aimed toward the public as Apple tries to excite people about its upcoming software products. Generating that excitement is more important than ever as the company finds itself in a hardware slump with sagging sales of its iPhones and iPads.

This year, Apple demoed its new iOS 10 mobile software with enhancements to Messages, Maps, Photos and Apple Music. The company also showed us MacOS Sierra, the new operating system for its computers, touting such features as support for Apple Pay and the Siri voice assistant.

The latest features in Apple's new smartwatch software, WatchOS 3, showed off quicker navigation tricks and speedier performance. And the Apple TV's TVOS expands the ability to search for information via Siri.

The event may have been jam-packed with features, but no one item really stood out. As one example, Apple faces greater competition in the world of virtual assistants with Microsoft Cortana, Amazon Alexa and similar products vying for your attention. Apple did expand Siri's capabilities with support for third-party apps and the Mac, but Siri still needs to do more to counter its rivals.

Apple should have more tricks up its sleeve when it holds its expected iPhone event in September. The company needs to shake up its offerings and surprise us with that "one more thing" if it expects to climb out of its current slump.
