Apple gears up for big announcements at WWDC

Apple gears up for big announcements at WWDC

On the software front, RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani expects the iOS 11 - the next operating system for Apple's iPhones and iPads - to get an overhaul that will accommodate the anticipated removal of the home button from the 10th anniversary model of the iPhone due out later this year. For now, it's important to note that Siri can only translate from English, but it's easy to imagine Apple expanding this support in the near future. It will bring a host of new features and improvements.Like all other software updates from Apple, iOS 11 will be free to download and use.

Apple vice president Phil Schiller said the Siri team at Apple had tuned the assistant into a "musicologist" that learns the tastes of listeners and gets songs from the internet cloud.

According to Apple, the new App Store is packed with original stories and editorial, updated daily in a new Today tab, as well as new Games and Apps tabs.

Siri's robotic voice and inability to understand users has become somewhat of a running gag in Silicon Valley and tech culture. With Files, you can easily browse, search and organise all your files in one place. The company claims that this learning is end-to-end encrypted, and remains exclusively to take advantage on your synced devices. A Siri face will show more info from the assistant, like flight times, controls for smart home devices and third-party notifications.

One of the biggest announcements of WWDC 2017 was iOS 11. Cook may even lift the cover on a smart speaker based on the Siri virtual assistant. This is a very handy feature especially when travelling to countries that don't speak your native language. The final release will be rolled out in September when the new iPhone models are launched. For instance, if you delete a message within the app on your iPhone, the change will reflect immediately on your other devices.

Users will be able to send and receive money through the messages app, or by using Siri and telling the assistant who to pay. For MacBook users, you'll need the Safari browser 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later. These are made possible through the new ProMotion feature, which supports 120 Hz refresh rate.

Soon, Apple will introduce a new iPhone feature that will do away with that annoying - and unsafe - urge to look at a text message while you're driving. While the company is finally going "VR-native" for desktop, Apple is also zeroing in on augmented reality for iOS 11 with the entrance of their newly revealed app developer kit "ARKit".
