Apple's iOS 11 will make iPhone 5 and 5c obsolete

"We think this is going to be a really important step in safety".

You can also go down the list of apps one-by-one and disable them on case-by-case basis. If that doesn't work well, the extra audio enhancements won't be enough to keep the productive competitive in what is bound to be a rapidly evolving smart speaker market.

iMac Pro is an all-in-one iMac aimed at professional users-note that Apple is also still working on the Mac Pro teased to journalists earlier this year.

This has been a longstanding issue with the iOS app store. The company is hoping that people who use an Apple iPhone will be able stop with notifications while they are driving.

The biggest announcement of the evening was HomePod, a Siri-Power speakers created to rival Amazon's Echo and Google's Home. A customizable dock remembers users' favorite apps, making it a snap to open them. Users will also be available to control smart home products such as connected lighting by speaking to Siri through the HomePod. The device is priced at a hefty $350 and expected to commence shipping in December. Apple fans have been complaining about voice recognition for a long time now.

Increasing speculation around iOS 11's potential iPhone 8 tease is the software's launch schedule.

The HomePod is Apple's first new gadget in almost three years, following its announcement of the Apple Watch in September 2014. With the new Core NFC framework, however, Apple could let third-party developers make use of NFC in novel ways, or it could simply expand NFC functions beyond Apple Pay for use in its own apps and services. Federighi highlighted stories about Iceland after a search in Safari for holidays to the island.

Apple revealed its 10-year plan for the future this week. Developers are being given tools to place 3D images of objects in the iPhone camera's field of view.

That said, it's pretty clear why Apple would want to bury the AI features of HomePod.

With the HomePod, macOS High Sierra, watchOS 4, iOS 11, and updated MacBooks and iMacs - it's safe to say Apple had a good few days.

However, Apple described several enhancements to Siri that are meant to make it more aware of where you are, what you're doing, and knowing what things you care about. The 13-inch Mac- Book Air also got a faster processor in a rare update. Apple will be celebrating its 10th anniversary since the firm launched its first smartphone in September 10 years ago.

A section of the two-hour presentation was dedicated to how Apple is turning the iPad Pro into a laptop. (Many reviewers have suggested that the current incarnation of Apple's assistant already trails competitors in key respects.) "This is the start of the AI wars", he said.

The moves announced Monday escalate Apple's technological battle of wits with Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Facebook. Yet it isn't as bulky as the 12.9-inch model.
