Apple says its looking to "reinvent" the way we listen to music in the home.

Apple is also launching a 10.5-inch iPad Pro, which has a screen that is 20 per cent larger than the current 9.8-inch model.

Last year, Google Assistant gave a tough competition to Siri. Siri will be voice activated to respond to requests for information and other help around the house. We're not sure if this will be more convenient than using your voice, but it appears that the feature is inside the Accessibility menu.

Reportedly, Apple is working on a "dark mode" for the entire operating system, which changes most backgrounds from white to black. The new Echo Show goes on sale on June 28 for $230. Microsoft is partnering with third-party speaker manufacturers to bring its own assistant, Cortana, to homes.

It wouldn't be the first time that Apple hopped on the bandwagon of a technology product popularized by a competitor.


The event is typically the second-most anticipated of the year for the company, after its usual iPhone unveiling every fall.

Is there anything more exciting for Apple addicts than WWDC. Referring to the speakers' mechanical details like its virtual surround sound, Phil Schiller, Apple's marketing chief, said, "You don't have to know what any of that is; just know that it sounds incredible".

Apple sought to position the HomePod as an extension of its musical heritage, with the device's name a play on the original iPod music player. Additionally, according to Smith, the developer who tweeted about this; this is seemingly a new App Store entry by Apple for the Activity App. Major version releases like iOS 11 and watchOS 4 featured, as well as lots of updates about the latest version of macOS. Most of the news focused on the coming updates for its various operating systems, but CEO Tim Cook also introduced some new hardware.
