Apple Just Announced A Bunch Of New Products and Software Enhancements

New iMacs for software programmers are getting better displays and graphics capabilities.

The speaker unveiled Monday is similar to devices from rivals, some of which have been on the market for years. It's brand new software, announced today at Apple's annual developers conference.

"I'm dispensing with the updates other than to say Apple's doing great", said Cook.

HomePod is a seven-inch-tall speaker that has Apple's digital assistant built in. You'll also be able to see what your mates are listening with a new tile on the homepage. That makes the AR animations more realistic and believable.

In the fall, our iPhones are going to get a laundry list of new features.

The features I'm most excited about, however, should let us get stuff done faster. Plus, the Apple Watch will be more fun to wear and show off thanks to new faces and bands. The smartwatch promises to learn about your routines to figure out what information to display. The application has been reorganised to include a persistent sidebar that will likely make it easier to sort through your photos.

But it's also possible that the HomePod could expose Siri as less capable than Amazon's Alexa, Google's Assistant and Microsoft's Cortana, Blaber said.

Other features coming to the Mac include the ability to stop video from automatically playing on websites when using Safari.

The next Mac version will be called High Sierra, suggesting that it's a refinement of the current version, Sierra. The current version is just Sierra. Really look at it, like you're trying to find Waldo. Amazon's popular voice-controlled speaker, the Echo, can be told to play songs from an Amazon music account or even Spotify, but not from Apple Music. The App Store will get a new look and feel.

Following months of speculation about what exactly the nature of its ambitions for augmented reality are, the company announced it's building an AR platform directly into iOS. And by integrating augmented reality, Apple is showing us a future where we might stop holding up our screens altogether. Unlike virtual reality - or even much of what we do on our iPhones - AR doesn't pull us out of the scenes around us.

Apple might seem a bit late to this smartphone payment game, especially when considering it still won't officially enter the space until the fall.

The event started with Apple CEO welcoming the audience at the 15th WWDC in San Jose, the heart of Silicon Valley where Apple is building its new campus. But so far, interest has been strongest among gamers, developers and hardware makers rather than everyday users.

Apple's Kevin Lynch speaks about the Apple Watch during an announcement of new products at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, Calif., Monday, June 5, 2017. That size offers room for a full-size keyboard, something the 9.7 inch model couldn't. The new model will start at $649 for 64GB of storage and cost up to $949 for 512GB. It will come in December starting at about $5,000. The new watchOS 4 also comes with some Apple Music improvements, including a better interface, multiple playlist syncing and a simpler AirPods experience.

For photos, Apple is turning to a "high efficiency" format to replace the widely used JPEG standard.

Apple also (big surprise) has a batch of new bands. Apple did not make it clear whether it would charge either party for transactions.

The feature, called "Do Not Disturb While Driving", will be part of Apple's iOS 11, a new version of the operating software for Apple mobile devices.
