As I've been catching up on more WWDC16 videos and processing everything, one thing that I keep thinking about as the common theme of WWDC16 is the decentralization of apps. Instead of building apps, we're encourage of build extensions - iMessage plugins, Notification Widgets, Siri Integration, Watch Complications, etc.

In case you haven't seen it, the big announcement at Google I/O this year was Instant Apps. Instead of downloading the entire app, Android can now download just the part of the app needed instantly to have a native user experience for whatever task the user needs to complete. I think all these small extensions set iOS up to do something similar next year.
