Can't resist texting while driving? Apple wants to make you stop

Apple's stock didn't react strongly to the news, falling 1% on Monday and up slightly to $154.38 in early morning trading on Tuesday.

Apple's Senior Vice President of Software Engineering Craig Federighi announced the new feature as part of its Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose. It will cost $349 and is expected to be Amazon Echo and Google Home's competitor.

Apple's AR software is capable of running on any iPhone or iPad that at least has an A9 processor on board.

"What we tried to do is build something that is a breakthrough speaker first", Apple CEO Tim Cook told Bloomberg. Many of those apps are sold via the App Store, which was revamped, and Apple gets a cut of all those sales. Apple is calling it HomePod and it will cost $350.

HomePod will be available for $349 (US) in white and space gray starting in December 2017 initially in Australia, the United Kingdom and the US.

Microsoft, however, has also bet big on other features of the Surface Pen, so its own stylus now features 4096 pressure sensitive levels. It was one of the first times that Apple had spoken at length about how the company was using machine learning in its products - and for good reason.

To be clear, Apple may well have a VR headset in its labs, just as the company is likely exploring AR glasses as well. The company has seen little innovation since iPhone 4. HomePod, Apple Music and Siri deliver the best music experience in the home that streams ad-free directly to HomePod. Numerous key features are only available for iPad, but there are still plenty of great improvements coming to the iPhone too.

SpaceX launches Dragon spacecraft to resupply ISS

Cavs try to adjust on both ends after Game 1 beating
You can't go into the game saying, 'Oh, KD is going to have six driving lanes to the rim and where don't get touched and he dunks. Golden State was on a completely different level as it looks to revenge last season's meltdown against Cleveland in the Finals.

May Jobs Report: 138000 More On Payrolls; Unemployment Dips Slightly
Job gains have averaged 121,000 over the last three months, a deceleration from an average of 181,000 over the last 12 months. The food services sector added 30,000 jobs, bringing its year over year increase to 267,000.

"This is a smart move because Siri is not that bright and is easily outperformed by Google Assistant while being on a par with Amazon's Alexa".

Apple says it's giving more emphasis to sound quality, not just smarts. New iMacs released Monday are getting better displays and graphics capabilities.

At WWDC, Apple also showed off a new iPad and a new computer called iMac Pro. This major update from Apple's mobile operating system brings a lot of new features. It will block videos that start playing automatically, for instance, and can also prevent ads from following and profiling users.

But it's on paper, which is obvious that the Apple Pencil is 1ms faster than the Surface Pen, but in real life, the difference between the two is barely noticeable.

According to Apple, you can ask Siri to send messages, control smart home devices, and get updates on the news, sports, and weather. Myriad companies - none of them Apple - have been fighting over the future of virtual reality, augmented reality, and everything in between. So far, the service has limited payments to purchases of products and services from companies and other organizations.

The five-day event started with a keynote where Apple announced upcoming software updates for the Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.
