Apple CEO Tim Cook confirmed Monday at the company's Apple Worldwide Developers Conference event in San Jose that Apple TV, its TV-connected streaming platform, will open access to Amazon Prime Video later this year. WatchOS 4 has a new workout UI, support for two-way data exchange with workout machines and more. The Apple TV app will presumably have the same limitations. High Sierra will be available in the coming months.
Even though the MacBook Pro line got an update late past year, now they've gotten another one - and both standard MacBooks and the much-neglected MacBook Airs are getting a little love, too.
The biggest statement comes in the form of the iMac Pro that has an eye-watering $4,999 price tag.
Notebooks: Apple said it's refreshing its notebooks, with the MacBook and MacBook Pro moving to faster processors and faster solid-state hard drives. Apple is taking on money-sharing apps like Venmo and Square Cash, as you'll be able to use Apple Pay to send friends money via chat. Well, i guess we will have to wait for a couple of more hours to find out how this will work. The iPad Pro range, meanwhile, got a new 10.5-inch variant which Apple seems to be pushing to replace the older 9.7-inch model.
App Store: The store is getting a makeover, too, with tabs for games, apps that are notable that day, and a tab just for nongaming apps. The iPad Pro has actually become cheaper while adding more muscle in processing, screen rates and display quality. The newest hardware had a definite skew towards the product being more of a fitness tracker, in contrast to the luxury fashion intentions of the original Watch. Its $349 (no United Kingdom pricing announced) speaker that not only brings Siri into the living room, but also looks to ape Sonos' multi-room functionality.
The HomePod will cost $349 - more expensive than Google's and Amazon's smart speakers - and will start shipping in December.
