WWDC 2017: Apple presents iOS 11 with an AR Kit for Developers


Safari, Apple's web browser, is getting new features aimed at online annoyances.

Apple raised the curtain on HomePod, its upcoming smart speaker, during Monday's keynote presentation at its Worldwide Developers Conference.

"The price tag is notably higher than both Amazon and Google's smart home offerings", he pointed out, "and while it will no doubt appeal to Apple fans, there is little to suggest - at least from the initial details - that this will directly compete against those Echo and Home devices".

Assuming Apple follows the same plan with the HomePod, pre-orders will probably start being accepted sometime around Black Friday, which is November 24 in 2017.

First, Johnson, who qualified 14th, had to start from the rear of the field due to a gear change in his No. 48 Chevrolet . Fellow Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers Ryan Blaney and Daniel Suarez finished second and third, respectively.

"Now the iPad is much more functional for a professional who's used to using a file manager in their work", Krewell added. Soon, you'll be able to send fellow Apple users money through an app that's integrated into iMessage, the default messaging app on Apple's mobile devices.

But arguably the coolest new feature is the launch of GymKit, which allows you to pair your Apple Watch with your gym equipment to more accurately track your workouts.

Apple also had a series of hardware reveals.

As far as India is concerned, New Delhi has done well to state this is an internal matter for the Gulf countries to handle. Earlier, he said the Saudis' move to isolate Qatar could mark the "beginning of the end to the horror of terrorism".

The HomePod will be available in December. The company "can't afford to yield valuable real-estate in the heart of people's homes to Amazon, Google and others", said Geoff Blaber, research analyst at CCS Insight.

The HomePod's main weapon is sound quality. Both versions of the iPad now feature the True Tone display that adjusts the colour temperature on the fly depending on lighting conditions, first introduced a year ago with the 9.7-inch Pro. It says the HomePod uses an Apple Music subscription for "deep knowledge of personal music preferences". "Just know that it sounds incredible". The highs were sharp, but not broken. Apple lost ground to Spotify in the early days of music streaming, and its home speaker is meant to be a booster rocket for Apple Music.

In another point of differentiation from its competition, the Apple HomePod seems to be only set up for Apple Music, according to The Verge. "This elegantly designed, compact speaker totally rocks the house".

"Most smart speakers you see today are really AI helpers first and foremost", an Engadget post explained.
