Brake, a road safety charity which promoted road safety campaigns, says mobile use by drivers is a growing issue in New Zealand and Apple is playing its part in cutting back distractions.

Editor's Remarks: The HomePod is Apple's first major new offering since the Apple Watch and is a sign that the company is stepping up its efforts to challenge Amazon's Echo and the Google Home. And now, the minimum storage available on the iPad Pro has been hiked to 64GB. Their screens come with 600 Nits of brightness, support for True-tone color, and the ability to play HDR videos.

The heart of the new iPad Pro is a new, desktop-class A10X Fusion chip with six-cores and a 12-core GPU. The firm claims that the innovative chipset drives up to 40% better graphics performance and 30% more speeds as compared to the previous generation A9X. There is a 7 MP front camera, also known as Facetime HD camera, along with the feature of image stabilization as well.

The Cupertino giant renewed it's iMac, Macbook and Macbook Pro lineups, integrating Kaby Lake processors, more GPU and expanded memory options. This makes the users' essential information such as where they are at a particular point of time, available to such companies to use as they see fit, which is a risky proposition. And believe us, the $649 or $799 are worth spending for.
