Behold Apple's new iPads: the 10.5-inch and 12.5-inch iPad Pro

However could iOS 11 be inching towards a dark mode?
Cook noted that Apple has 16 million registered developers, up 3 million in 2016 alone, and has paid out $70 billion to developers since the store opened in 2008.
Cook said Apple now has 16 million registered software developers worldwide for its consumer electronics, including smartphone known as iPhone, and 3 million of them were added a year ago.
So if one deletes a message on their iPhone, then it is automatically deleted from their Mac or iPad and the reverse is true. This means any changes users make to messages will be reflected across all their Apple devices. Or, if you get a text message asking for money, Siri will suggest iMessage's Apple Pay integration with the exact amount that's been requested. Users can authenticate transactions on Apple Pay securely with Touch ID.
With today's update, Apple seems to be sending a clear signal out there.
Siri can now translate for you.
The Cupertino-based company also introduced a music speaker, HomePod, its first hardware since Apple Watch was rolled out two years ago. The upgrade offers better multitasking, with drag-and-drop available between apps when you use Split Screen, a new file management system that makes finding your data a lot easier, and a more expansive Dock with a slot to predict which app you'll use next. Schiller waited until last in his announcement of the HomePod even to mention the role of Siri and the ability to answer questions. You'll be able to ask Siri, "How do you say this in Chinese?" and it will speak it. Languages include Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish, with more coming in the future.
The iOS 11 features were needed if the iPad Pro wanted to live up to its "pro" name, maintained Kevin Krewell, a principal analyst at Tirias Research.
There are new improvements for iPads in iOS 11 too.
Apple also announced a new iMac Pro, which will cost $4,999 and will be available in December.
Amazon Prime Video is expected to be available on Apple TV later this year, along with the releases of iOS 11 and watchOS 4. This kit will let developers use the built-in camera, powerful processors and motion sensors in iOS devices to create AR experiences. This means less storage space used in cloud as well as device.
Some of the inclusions from the iPhone 7 are also here, with both the 12 megapixel rear camera and 7 megapixel selfie front-facing camera thrown into the mix. They will be on sale next week in the United States and 37 additional countries and regions, including Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK. The Lock Screen and Notification Center are the same screen, and the Control Center has been revised to be a single page.
The mobile operating system will also get a new file management system that is much more closely aligned with the traditional file systems found on desktop and laptop computers. It's a mostly under-the-hood change, but users will notice a difference.
