Apple gears up for big announcements at WWDC

As always, the event will begin with a keynote session that generally includes new software announcements.

- Apple Music can now show you what your friends who also use Apple Music are listening to. As announced by Apple, the WWDC 2017 keynote is due to begin at 6pm on Monday 5 June 2017 for those of us in the United Kingdom, while USA residents will have to get up a little earlier (it starts at 10am PT).

How long will WWDC 2017 last?

It will also provide traffic information when it knows you need to travel somewhere, and will bring you news headlines throughout the day. Tune into the live stream, linked below, to watch the conference online at 10:00am PT, 1:00pm ET.

As the device pipeline fills, the company is shining more of a spotlight on hardware to woo the developers needed to create accompanying apps. However, Siri has been slow to improve its voice-recognition technology and set of responses, especially compared with the more capable Alexa and Google Assistant.

Apple also announced that watchOS 4, the next version of its smartwatch platform, will be arriving in September.

Apple is positioning the seven-inch device as a very smart speaker that beats rivals on sound quality. Soon, you'll be able to send fellow Apple users money through an app that's integrated into iMessage, the default messaging app on Apple's mobile devices.

Apple is introducing a number of effects into the Live Photos feature. The free OS upgrade will be available in the fall.

The analysts have called the model "revolutionary", but it's unclear how Apple would talk about the device's improvements and advantages over its other iPads. There are new workout updates, like one that can tell when you're swimming and reach the end of the lane. This combined with the fact that tonight is expected to debut new gadgets. The 12-inch MacBook is also expected to get an update, but it's unclear whether that would be a Kaby Lake chip.

Finals pick up where they left off with Cavs-Warriors III
Given his assignments, Thompson's potential foul trouble could be a stat to watch as the series goes on. The Cavs won the title with defense last season. "That's the only pressure I worry about", said Durant.


The deal comes after years of stalemate between the two tech giants.

New features coming to iPhones and iPads include messages that sync to Apple servers in the cloud. iPhones will only keep the most recent messages on the device to save storage. App Store customers have now downloaded more than 180 billion apps and Apple has paid out over $70 billion to developers since the store launched in 2008, making it the most vibrant software marketplace in the world.

We're expecting an action-packed WWDC, so there will probably be a lot of surprises on Monday, with new hardware chief among them.

Apple has also designed this to go seamlessly with an iPhone. It will feature recommendations of new releases and updates, compelling videos, top charts just for games and hand-picked collections.

Not much is known about speaker's size or shape at this point, but Apple has a tendency of standing out from the crowd. "Together with iOS 11 these new iPad Pro models will radically change what users can do with iPad".

- For iPad, there's a new app switcher that looks like the App Dock on macOS. If the speculation pans out, the speaker would be Apple's first new product since its smartwatch in 2015.

It's not yet clear how Apple will do this, although Bloomberg reports that there will be "deep integration" with Apple services. Not even the app dock at the bottom of the screen has changed, apart that is from being able to arrange them.

Google Home, which sells for US$129, is a window to Google's plethora of services from Search to YouTube Red music streaming and its Calendar app.
