Apple's new iPhones 'Do Not Disturb' drivers with notifications

Apple unveils 'HomePod' speaker, first new product in years

Along with that, Apple has also managed to bring in some other noteworthy updates to the iOS platform, most of which covers the some key areas. Keeping true with a tradition created by founder Steve Jobs, CEO Tim Cook announced the HomePod as the day's "one last thing". Apple's entry into the market could change that.

With the announcement that iOS 11 will be available in autumn, users of Apple products need wait no longer to see how their iPhones and iPads will look.

The smartphone industry giant said its devices will become the most powerful, personal, and intelligent technology with iOS 11.

Rather than the "hovering" effect of Pikachu, the cup felt more like part of the scenery than an effect added in later.

The company is releasing a new version of its operating system for Macs. Currently, the most widely used Android OS is Marshmallow, which released in 2015 and powers about 31 percent of Android smartphones.

Apple announced over 30 new iOS 11 features on stage at WWDC 2017 and we will see new iPhone 8 exclusive features arrive with the iOS 11 update this fall.

There's no word on United Kingdom pricing, or when the Apple HomePod will be released, but ArsTechnica says the product could cost "somewhere between £330 and £370" - making it more than double the price of its Amazon Echo Rival.

The iPad Pro also features the new 64-bit A10X Fusion chip, a six-core CPU, 12-core GPU, 12-megapixel back camera, 7-megapixel front camera, four speakers, and support for 802.11ac Wi-Fi and LTE Advanced.

Users will be able to ask Siri to play songs and answer questions via the speaker. The company also updated iOS features, such a split-screen, a drag-and-drop feature and a dock for apps, on the iPad Pro to improve productivity. Much more of a fuss will likely be made over something else that Apple removed from iOS 11: Support for three different iOS device models.

A Israeli tech company Cellebrite and a NY man whose son died in a collision in which texting may have occurred is developing a "textalyzer" they hope can be used by law enforcement to see whether drivers' phones had been used recently.

Apple also introduced a new 10.5-inch iPad Pro and previewed the upcoming iOS 11 today at the annual developers' event.

Most users have no idea they can even do it, developers and analysts say. The new "while driving" function adds to this by setting the iPhone's screen to black and enabling an automatic reply to texts when the phone senses it's in a moving vehicle.
