Apple touts new hardware, AI gains

The new iOS will be released this fall.

Information that is transmitted to Apple's servers will be encrypted and sent using an anonymous Siri identifier.

Also featured in High Sierra is the new Files system, with Apple say will be more secure thanks to native encryption and crash protection.

"Apple reinvented portable music with iPod, and now HomePod will reinvent how we enjoy music wirelessly throughout our homes", Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice-president of worldwide marketing, said in a statement. For the latest edition of the operating system, Apple has brought in a slew of improvements and features (some of which have existed on the rival platform since ages), enhanced support for the new Apple Pencil, along with a radical new ARKit framework that supports augmented reality-based apps and experiences. In the past, Apple has begun accepting pre-orders on its website for new devices like the iPhone 7 one week before they arrive in stores.

"It was reported last week as this Amazon Echo killer, but in reality it is more a smart music speaker", said Brian Blau, Gartner's research vice president who specializes in Apple.

The Apple Pencil, for example, is also betting big on iOS 11, an updated version of the mobile OS available on iPhones and iPads and which comes with several improvements for pen input. "The AR kit will create a level of innovation within their software developer community that is going to result in an awesome amount of new apps". And Apple will also provide a "lane guidance" view when you take the wheel of a auto. "Now all the tech titans are engaged in AI technology".

In the video below we get to see some of the new features in iOS 11, the video features the iOS 11 beta 1, so there will be some changes before the final release of the software.

"There is so much momentum building around these speakers that it would be hard for Apple not to come out with one", said industry analyst Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights & Strategy. Software updates are also expected for Apple's smartwatch and TV box for streaming online video. There was also a sneak peek of the iMac Pro, an extremely powerful device aimed clearly at the pro users.

iPhone photographers ought to welcome new features coming to the Photos and Camera apps, though of course I haven't put any of these to the test yet. Making the most of it will require a subscription to Apple's own music streaming service, which runs $10 to $15 per month and has attracted 27 million subscribers so far.
