Ten things Apple announced today
Apple has launched a slew of new products and system improvements at the World Wide Developers' Conference today. Here are ten pointers to the future:
- HomePod, the new high-quality speaker system similar to Amazon's Echo
- iMac Pro in space grey with pro-level performance (a placeholder for the much-neglected Mac Pro) and faster, cheaper iMac 21.5in and 27in models.
- Faster MacBook Pros with the Kaby Lake processor
- Faster MacBook with increased RAM options, new keyboard similar to those on the Pros.
- Amazon Prime video coming to Apple TV. How long will it be before Apple content is available on the Amazon Firestick?
- New Watch OS including a context-sensitive Siri complication
- iPhone Do Not Disturb function when driving and when linked to a car system. This is a significant development in the interests of road safety.
- New 10.5in and 12.9in iPad Pro
- MacOS High Sierra and new Mac File System
- Latest iOS 11
