WWDC 2017: Apple introduces smart compact music speaker

Meanwhile, at a San Jose venue in Northern California, Apple's Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Tim Cook opened the Worldwide Developers Conference, or WWDC, with announcement that Prime Video, a video streaming service that is operated by Amazon.com, will be integrated into Apple TV, a digital media player and micro console. A public beta will be available later this month. The Apple Pay has got a new and much-needed feature- users can now make P2P payments with Apple Pay. On top of these big new changes iOS 11 is also set to arrive with a whole load of smart extras, such as smaller file sizes for photos, multi-room AirPlay for your home speaker setup and the ability to send money to friends using Apple Pay and iMessage.

iOS 11 also brings another key implementation - Apple Pay integration in iMessage.

Once the feature is enabled, the iPhone will be able to automatically detect when a person is driver using Bluetooth or motion sensors and will silence all notifications to keep the screen dark. This is the type of question that can only be answered after spending time testing out iOS 11 for a longer period of time. While I'm sure I'll still feel limited when using the iPad Pro, Apple has made strides towards solving numerous tablet's most significant issues through much-needed new features.

The App Store is being completely redesigned, with a new tab called Today to help people discover new apps that are appearing.

Since the launch of the App Store in 2008, more than 180 billion apps have been downloaded and Apple has paid over $70 billion to developers.

The Games tab will also have previews, tips and gameplay videos available. As you are already aware of the fact, OneDrive already supports many iOS capabilities, including OneDrive for iMessage, the Share extension, and Apple Pencil and split-screen support on iPad.

The new option of One Handed Keyboard has been added to the new iOS.

Apple has overhauled its Control Centre on iPhone, making it look more simplistic and compact, fitting it onto a single page.

Apple has introduced indoor mapping to its Maps app in iOS 11. While navigating on the road, users will be able to see speed limits in the Maps app, as well as lane guidance.

iOS 11's Messages app will get a new update, which features an automatic synchronising of all your conversations across your iOS and macOS devices. Unlike earlier, the iPad Pro base variant starts with 64GB internal storage and that model costs $649 while the 256GB variant would cost $749 and Apple has also introduced the 512GB iPad Pro with the price tag of $949.

A new option of Emergency SOS option has been added into the Settings app which will now allow the users to turn on the Auto Call option.

As the framework is created to optimize models for Apple's mobile devices, it should reduce RAM use and power consumption.

Apple added a speaker category to HomeKit that lets you add and control smart speakers using the company's new AirPlay 2 protocol.

Now you can make labels bolder throughout your device.
