Apple WWDC 2017 Announcement Round-up: The HomePod, Augmented Reality and iOS 11

Frank Williams | 08 June, 2017, 19:55

With the announcement of the most awaited event, Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), that will be held between 5 and 9 of June, 2017 in California, U.S.A., speculations related to the major product lines and additions have been flying about.

Apple has not yet announced a launch date for iOS 11, but when it arrives, you'll either get a pop-up alert on your iOS device or can navigate to Settings General Software Update to force a manual update.

With the new Drag and Drop function, iPad users can "move text, photos and files from one app to another". Today, we'll look at that and other Apple Rumors for Wednesday.

Limiting reviews to the most recent version made sense a few years ago. Apple TV users will now be able to stream content from Amazon's Prime Video.

The biggest change visible is the new dock for iPads sourced directly from Apple's very own Mac.

Apple has introduced a new image format HEIF which replaces JPEG. The tool is reminiscent of the AirDrop feature, which allows users to easily share media between devices via Bluetooth.

Al Shabaab kills 20 soldiers in Somalia's Puntland, officer says
In January, it said it had killed 50 Kenyan soldiers in an assault on their base in Kolbiyow town in the south of the country. Al-Shabab is an Islamist group whose leaders have pledged allegiance with al-Qaeda.

I geek out a little bit when I see new features for my iPhone and iPad.

We're dealing with an early, first beta of iOS 11.

If you have one of the older iPhone models, you'll either have to live with the bugs and glitches, or update to a newer version of the iPhone that benefits from the safety and software updates.

While the deleted apps will still show up on the Home Screen as greyed-out icons, they can be re-installed with just a tap. You can even use the Apple TV as a speaker and control music from there using Siri.

But at the same time, the top grossing category has also been a resource for developers looking to gauge the success of certain game and in-app purchase types. It's a smart wireless speaker powered by the Siri AI that seems created to compete with the likes of Amazon's Alexa and Google's Home speaker. It notes that the upcoming iOS update includes a new Wi-Fi-sharing feature that should save you from digging behind your couch to find out what the password on your router actually is.
