Apple Introduces 'Do Not Disturb While Driving' Feature for iOS 11

Rather than taking on Amazon's Echo and Google Home, however, analysts see HomePod less as a "smart assistant", and more as a pure music player.

In our previous article, we mentioned Apple is updating the Siri Speaker, but Apple didn't make any official statement that time. If the speculation pans out, the speaker would be Apple's first new product since its smartwatch in 2015. Alexa and Google Assistant don't have those limitations.

The Apple TV users can download the Apple Events app from the App Store to stream Apple WWDC event 2017 live.

Siri Intelligence has also been extended to understand what you want next and give you the information proactively. Both speakers can respond to voice requests for the news, weather and tasks such as turning on the lights. It will be available for users to download and install later this year in fall. The new Echo Show goes on sale on June 28 for $230. What Apple might call its new desktop operating system is not known yet, but it could be anything among Mammoth, Mojave, Miramar, and Monterey. The software uses Bluetooth or WiFi doppler effect to determine how quickly you're moving, to determine if you're driving or not. First, as was rumored ahead of Apple's big event on Monday, Apple's mobile platform will no longer support 32-bit apps beginning with iOS 11.

The Apple Pay Cash Card will pick up money received, which can be used for further Apple Pay payments, or to transfer money back into your account. Apple, by contrast, has been stubborn about letting outsiders tap the power of Siri, and the company has fallen behind as a result.

Apple said that watch wearers will be able to link their devices with the gym equipment through NFC. According to reports, the upcoming iOS update includes a new Wi-Fi-sharing feature that should save you from digging behind your couch to find out what the password on your router actually is, The Verge says. The Cupertino major will also roll out the new iOS update to sixth gen iPods as well. The new iPad lines have new and enhanced display features like brighter and better color reproduction with a 120Hz refresh rate. The brand is reported to launch a new 10.5-inch iPad Pro, which will boast similar form-factor as seen on the 9.7-inch iPad Pro but would feature a narrower bezels design, as per a claim by Ming-Chi Kuo, a renowned analyst at KGI.
