Amazon-Apple TV deal shows tough road to cooperation for tech rivals

New features iOS 11 for the iPad were also introduced in the conference.

Apple will give iOS 11 to developers first, then to adventurous public beta testers, and later to everyone else.

But it's also possible that the HomePod could expose Siri as less capable than Amazon's Alexa, Google's Assistant and Microsoft's Cortana, Blaber said. Apple says more languages will be added in the coming months. Siri will also offer suggestions based on your personal usage of Safari, News, Mail, Messages and more.

The Siri watchface uses machine learning to determine what information is most useful to you at a given point in time.

With the next version of the iOS system for mobile devices, messages will sync in the cloud. The company also launched a new configuration of the 13-inch MacBook Pro without a Touch Bar that starts at a cheaper $1,299.

App Store: Apple has redesigned the App Store from ground up - for the iOS 11 update - so that apps are easily discoverable. Apple Pay Cash will however, be available in the United States only. But the company relented, and Apple's larger phones have become hot commodities as more people have embraced having a bigger display to look at pictures and watch video on the devices.

Users will be able to see Apple Maps, Apple's navigation application, while driving - though they will be unable to input destinations. The tech giant launched a bunch of refinements in its all four platforms - tvOS, watchOS, macOS and iOS - with iOS 11, watchOS 4, High Sierra and updates to its Mac line of desktops and notebooks. During Jobs' last decade, Apple introduced the iPod, iPhone and iPad - all huge commercial successes that both reshaped daily life and swamped previous digital music players, smartphones and tablets. You can also set up your device to send your favorite contacts an automatic reply to tell them you are driving and will get back to them when you arrive. You can also loop a live photo to make a movie, or edit and trim it or save a still frame from a Live Photo. While the dock will hide when you're running apps, you simply need to swipe up to make the dock visible again.

The new iPad Pro also comes with a better camera - the same one found in the iPhone 7 - along with more storage, a better display and faster refreshing of moving images. This technology reduces the file size of every photo taken on these two devices. A "Daily Stories" section will now let the fruit-themed toymaker's editorial team describe apps with a storyteller's appeal, while the "Enhanced Search" feature will now display app results that include these editorial stories, tips and tricks, and app lists. The app switcher will also be redesigned making it easier to move between active apps. It also enhanced its workout app to, for instance, support high intensity interval training.

Lock Screen: Now merged with the notifications center into one screen.

This new feature seems to be a part of a bunch of iOS 11 features that were announced at Worldwide Developers Conference 2017. Or make that new voices, with a male version of Siri is getting a refresh, too.

It is created to work with the Apple Music subscription service and can produce rich sound while tapping into the artificial intelligence power of Siri.
