Soon, iPhones will block texts while driving

At Apple's annual developer conference in San Jose, the covers were taken off iOS 11 for the first time.

Apple has extended support for its Apple Pencil stylus across the operating system so you can interact with the pencil and take notes wherever you are.

"You don't have to know what any of that is", said Schiller. Apple ramps up the options in the iOS 11 update with tweaks and new features for iMessages. The introduction of iOS 11 means that users will no longer be able to use 32-bit apps on devices with it installed.

INSIDER rounded up four new products we're especially excited to try this year. "If Apple had not done this, its customers would embrace Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant". There's a redesigned App Store that's now 64-bit only, an improved Control Center settings screen and a one-handed keyboard mode for use on the Plus-sized iPhone variants.

The program is designed for app developers, whether they're individuals or companies.

This could be a tacit admission by Apple that it's too late in the game for yet another smart speaker - at least in name. The HomePod will also have positional awareness, in terms of where it is placed in the house, and direct the sounds accordingly. It runs the A8 chip, also seen in iPhones. So by marketing the HomePod as a music device, Apple can under-promise and over-deliver.

Along with introducing the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, Apple is also refreshing the 12.9-inch version of the tablet. Pricing and availability for both will vary worldwide. The most recent findings were particularly poor - and as I explained earlier this year, the underlying problem isn't even anything technical. But since the tech used to play them is dying out, many may become relics.

Apple's new iMacs are getting brighter displays and graphics capabilities, which Apple says makes the Mac a great platform for developing virtual-reality experiences. "HomePod packs powerful speaker technology, Siri intelligence and wireless access to the entire Apple Music library into a attractive speaker that is less than 7 inches tall, can rock most any room with distortion free music and be a helpful assistant around your home". That includes four Thunderbolt 3 ports, allowing users to connect up to two separate 5K monitors while connecting two RAIDs. The prices will start at $4,999 (around Rs3.22 lakh). This is especially important if you want to make sure Apple isn't downgrading a feature you use every day or changing how it works dramatically.

There are six microphones in HomePod, so it can handle voice commands - even when it's playing music - through Apple's digital assistant Siri.

iPad Pro: The future of the MacBook?

If the iPad range wasn't already complicated enough, Apple has now added the 10.5-inch iPad Pro to the mix. The tablet still weighs in at approximately just one pound, nearly exactly like the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. Craig Federighi told the WWDC audience that the money your friends send you will go into a new Apple Pay Cash account.
