Siri, a digital assistant that has been on Apple's iPhone since 2011, will be voice activated to respond to requests for information and other help around the house. In an industry first, data not previously communicated between smartwatch and fitness machine will sync seamlessly - including calories, distance, speed, floors climbed, incline and pace - resulting in the most accurate measurements possible with less device management.
A 64GB version of the iPad Pro will cost $650; it is available to order now and will begin to be shipped next week. Porter shoppable app for Apple TV launched past year already offers something like that, and Amazon itself is already exploring the notion of special shoppable films to be made with major advertiser partners.
The Do Not Disturb While Driving function is a part of the iOS 11 operating system, revealed at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California yesterday.
Other tweaks for developers include the ability for existing devices to support Apple's HomeKit smart home service, and support for to-do lists, notes, reminders, and banking with Siri.
With HomePod, Apple is preparing itself to take on Amazon's (AMZN - Free Report) Echo and Alphabet's (GOOGL - Free Report) Google Home, which is a little speaker-like home automation device that can do everything from streaming music to dimming lights or adjusting the heat on the compatible thermostat. With a 10.5 inch screen and a reduced bezel size, the smaller iPad Pro is more similar to the standard size (the original is 12.9 inches). Now this majorly used VA in iOS 11, has got the new features, to make it much smarter.
Support for AR: Apple is bringing augmented reality to iOS 11 with the new ARKit for developers.

Here is a review on the new iOS 11. Besides these, the new iPad Pro will also come with a 12 megapixel rear and 7-megapixel front cam. To know more about the new App Store, visit Apple App Store.
This year's event has just been held, and as well as the consumer releases there was plenty for business customers to fawn over, too. There are so many reasons as to why the company would convince a lot of buyers to buy the smaller and compact iPad Pro but here's the most kickass reasons that make it stand apart. The new-look download shop includes sections for featured apps and games, with articles and videos exploring more detail of their development, story and design, which is pretty cool.
