So what's about to go down during 2017's WWDC keynote? It's actually a homecoming of sorts as from 1988 until 2003 WWDC was held in that same convention center. If the speculation pans out, the speaker would be Apple's first new product since its smartwatch in 2015, Sunday, June 4, 2017. Apple customers can also live stream the event via their gadgets.
The feature, called "Do Not Disturb While Driving", will be part of Apple's iOS 11, a new version of the operating software for Apple mobile devices. A few hardware announcements too can not be ruled out as well. The mode activates when the phone detects that its owner is in a auto - and is not using Apple CarPlay - and will mute any incoming notifications. "Given our view that the 5,8-inch iPhone 8 will come with 3D sensing technology, we expect some AR-related features to be integrated into iOS 11". The Activity app has also been spotted in the App Store, so iOS 11 could allow users to remove it, a thing that's not possible right now and which is rather annoying for those not using an Apple Watch. Just like how Apple replaced SMS with iMessage several years back.
In iOS 11, users will be able to copy bits of content from an active app on the left side of the screen to the other app simply by dragging. So far this year, they have reaped about $10bn from the App Store. That again will be pulled off by developing a new Automator app having features of Workflow. "If Apple does not launch a "skills store", that would be a mistake".
It is a possibility that tech affectionados might be in for a treat if Apple decides to delve out some information regarding the iPhone it will launch to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the revolutionary device.
Why? Because Apple's finally expected to unveil its highly anticipated competitor to the Amazon Echo and Google Home. Amazon, which has developed television shows such as The Man in the High Castle, has been one of the Apple's primary rivals in streaming media. Rerports suggest that the device would essentially serve as a hub for controlling smart home devices. Daryanani said Apple may also announce an iPad Pro with a faster processor in an attempt to revive its long-slumping tablet sales.
And true to Apple's way of introducing new products and features, the AR demo, complete with a battlefield-on-a-table, was spectacular.
Along the same lines, the iPad's multitasking capabilities are also getting a major upgrade, thanks to the new App Switcher feature. Powering all the three variant could be the latest A10X chipset and will likely have minimum storage option of 512 GB. The new iPad starts at $649 and will start shipping next week.
