IPhone iOS11 update to include 'do not disturb while driving' mode

That should help Apple reposition the iPad as a work device capable of carrying out all the usual functionality users want from their laptops.

Still, the Apple Watch hasn't been a smash hit, fueling worries that the company's ability to transfix customers had waned after the 2011 death of co-founder Steve Jobs. It's still unclear whether or not you can send money to folks not using an iOS device, which could make drinking with friends a little more awkward if they are on Android devices.

Soon, Apple will introduce a new iPhone feature that will do away with that annoying - and unsafe - urge to look at a text message while you're driving.

The developer preview of iOS 11 was launched last night, with a public beta to follow by the end of June and a widespread launch this autumn.

Comey to tell Senate Trump expected loyalty pledge
Comey offered intimate details of his encounter with Trump in an apparent attempt to create added authenticity to his account. The President then returned to the topic of Mike Flynn, saying, "He is a good guy and has been through a lot".

The iPhone maker spent considerable time on iOS 11, which comes with impressive new features that will be available across devices, but also with iPad-specific features. Apple Pay is coming to iPad as well, allowing users to pay for goods and services within apps or on websites in Safari. This is the start of a the AI wars. Apple isn't even asking to invest in a special hardware to experience augmented reality apps. "Apple will play a big part in taking AR to the masses and defining the user experience".

As expected, it features deep integrations with Apple Music, HomeKit control and powerful speakers with beamforming audio to ensure good sound quality and acoustics regardless of where you place it in the room.

Six microphones can pick up voice commands and Siri can learn a listener's preferences, send messages, update news and weather and act as a smart home hub.

Analysts said the smart home speaker market is ripe for Apple. 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.

The HomePod speaker stands just under seven inches (18 cm) tall and is covered in fabric mesh that will come in white or gray. "This is the product that will measure Apple's progress and whether its stance on privacy hinders its machine learning endeavours".

The speaker will sell for about $350 in December in the US, United Kingdom and Australia.

At the event, Apple also showcased the Messages app that stores your messages - all end-to-end encrypted - in iCloud, which means no more storage problem due to the tonnes of messages that you haven't deleted since forever.
