What WWDC 2017 Has in Store

Elsewhere, the newly unveiled HomePod looks to muscle in on Google and Amazon's turf as Apple's first smart speaker, while the iMac Pro was also debuted in order to give legs to the ailing iMac family.

Apple has also worked to make iOS a more productive platform. Apple said that iOS 11 will allow people to send money or get paid in Messages or even tell Siri to pay a contact using the credit or debit cards stored in Apple Wallet. The ability to swipe apps from the dock and run two programs side-by-side in the same window might well convert a few of the laptop faithful, and I also loved how easy it was to just click on links and photos on websites, then drag them right into emails.

iOS 11 can be downloaded as a Developer Preview today from Apple's website.

Numerous company's stock apps have also been updated and improved.

Siri also uses on-device learning in iOS 11 to learn more about topics that are interesting to us.

Apple Pay- Apple Pay has added a feature of person to person payments and is also integrated with iMessage app.

Apple was sued six months ago in relation to a case involving a fatal vehicle crash blamed on a teenage driver using the company's FaceTime video calling app. In the event of an emergency, the mode can be tuned for what Apple referred to as "special contacts".

Do Not Disturb While Driving app makes sure users keep their eyes on the road, by preventing notifications from appearing.

On stage in San Jose, Tim Cook said that WWDC 2017 would be the biggest and best ever, citing the fact that the Apple developer community is now 16 million strong. That's mostly because Apple's followed 2017's big tech trend and shaved down the bezel so it can cram a bigger screen into a frame that's nearly unchanged in size.

These changes help transition the iPad Pro from simply the iPad's bigger, stronger brother into a MacBook cousin - one that is lighter, has excellent battery life, and an interface that with each iteration becomes more and more recognizable to macOS fans.

To get Apple's latest mobile OS, you have three options: become an Apple developer and try the beta; wait for the public beta in July; or wait for the final, stable version that arrives in the fall. Find out how your digital experience needs real world input here.
