'Do Not Disturb While Driving' feature coming to iPhone iOS 11

It includes new features for watch faces and a Siri-based watch face that filters information shown based on the priority arrived using machine learning. The more powerful iMac is meant to address concerns of creative professionals who had been limited to much less powerful iMacs or the much-loved Mac Pro, which hasn't been updated since 2013.

The HomePod is expected to go on sale in December at $349. It can't afford to yield valuable real-estate in the heart of people's homes to Amazon, Google and others as access to content, information and search becomes pervasive and less dependent on the smartphone.

The Echo, released in 2015, and Google Home, released a year ago, were the first entrants in a promising market. The pricing of Apple's device was shared at the conference in comparison to both smart home speakers as well as premium audio speakers.

Apple's senior vice president of software engineering, Craig Federighi, announced the feature at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, Calif., on Monday. A similar feature already exists on Google Android phones. Facebook, HTC and Sony have high-end VR systems, too. Augmented reality is the blending of the physical and virtual worlds. But so far, interest has been strongest among gamers, developers and hardware makers rather than everyday users. Apple's entry into the market could change that.

WeChat announced that it "regrettably" had to abolish its tipping feature in order to comply with Apple's new terms. These devices will only keep the most recent messages in local storage.

With the new update, Apple has introduced a new technology called High Efficiency Image File Format (HEIF) that reduces the file size of every photo taken with iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. "We should not lose sight of the fact that drivers using the iPhone are involved in thousands of crashes", Feldman told the Huffington Post.


Apple is also bringing the ability to send money to friends or other people through its payment service, Apple Pay. The product will launch in the US, UK and Australia in December 2017 and in other markets in 2018.

Apple has used its iOS 11 update to attempt to make driving with your iPhone safer.

"It will reinvent home audio", said Apple CEO Tim Cook.

The new Pride Edition Woven Nylon band is also available on apple.com and will be available later in the 5-11 June week at Apple Stores in the USA and over 35 countries and regions.

It also enhanced its workout app to, for instance, support high intensity interval training. In an industry first, data not previously communicated between smartwatch and fitness machine will sync seamlessly - including calories, distance, speed, floors climbed, incline and pace - resulting in the most accurate measurements possible with less device management.
