Apple Takes On Distracted Driving With New Feature

But now you can delete apps such as Main, Stocks, and Weather just like you'd delete any other app (and if you change your mind, they're in the App Store).
And now everyone is talking about machine learning, with Google and Facebook leading the charge.
The HomePod now only supports Apple Music. At those gatherings, the software giants sought to burnish their credentials in augmented reality and artificial intelligence. Read on to find the best fit for you. Apple has been attempting to combat these issues through various means including tweaks published with its iOS updates. The system will let you engage with full virtual reality experiences on your phone or tablet, overlaying apps on your walls and putting table-top games on your real table.
The new HomePod is created to sneak Siri into the home by putting it inside a product - a streaming music speaker - that people already understand.
Apple skipped its usual March announcement event, so WWDC provided an opportunity to do some catching up. The lowest-level configuration will start at $4999, the company said. But it may also be a play to boost the profitable services business, which previous year generated revenue of more than $24 billion - or 11 percent of total sales.
To get Apple's latest mobile OS, you have three options: become an Apple developer and try the beta; wait for the public beta in July; or wait for the final, stable version that arrives in the fall. The smart assistant speaker has immediately been compared to others in the market like Amazon Echo, Echo Dot and Google Home. And fortunately for Google and Amazon, Apple'sSiri is widely seen as lagging behind the competition in both its quality and capabilities.
And AppleWatch is bringing Siri front and center. But there has still been some big news for fans of the company's iMac and MacBook lines. Soon, with a real app, that awkward workaround will be gone for good. It makes multitasking on an iPadmore powerful with a new customisable Dock that provides quick access to frequently used apps and documents from any screen, and a redesigned app switcher that makes it easier to move between pairs of active apps, used in Split View and now Slide Over.
The company sometimes uses WWDC to announce new products, as it did last night when it introduced the HomePod, (a smart home speaker introduced by Apple under the guise of "reinventing home music"), which is Apple's answer to the Amazon Echo or Google Home. So by marketing the HomePod as a music device, Apple can under-promise and over-deliver.
