WWDC 2017 Apple launches iOS 11 updates to watchOS

While there haven't even been any hints about prices, Apple is obviously hard at work creating other options for techies, including a new line of iMacs, MacBooks, and a MacOS update called High Sierra.

JavaScript performance is a major part of overall browser speed and it seems that Apple is focusing on improving the desktop version of Safari because it noticed that Google Chrome displays a pop-up on its homepage that claims that Chrome is "faster". It features a new machine learning technique to stop other sites tracking your browsing and more.

The Photos app has also been beefed up.

This year's WWDC speech was an important one as we witnessed Apple adopt most of the trending technologies and building upon them in their true fashion.

Apple's Photos app also includes interface enhancements including a new sidebar as well as better filters in search.

Apple's latest operating system, macOS High Sierra, will bring several incremental improvements to Apple's own apps as well as a significant file system overhaul behind the scenes to make Cupertino's laptops and desktops more responsive.

All of these announcements reveal an Apple that is potentially embracing video games like it never has before. Support for all of Apple's customers will be coming in the months to come.

Apple said it will make a developer kit for "external graphics" available that includes a Thunderbolt 3 enclosure and an AMD RX 580 GPU. Safari now has content blocking built in, automatically stopping annoying ads in their tracks before they get the chance to blow your ears off and slow down your PC.

All Mac devices supporting Sierra OS will receive a free upgrade to macOS High Sierra. With High Sierra, Mac users will get to experience a few tweaks under the hood for APS.
