Apple reveals new HomePod, iPad Pro and upgraded operating systems

It's Apple's first new device since the company released the Apple Watch in April 2015.

Called HomePod, the wireless speaker delivers unbelievable audio quality and uses spatial awareness to sense its location in a room and automatically adjust the audio.

It is also created to work with Apple Music subscriptions, able to access your music library and make recommendations based on song history.

Tim Cook, CEO, speaks during Apple's annual world wide developer conference (WWDC) in San Jose, California, U.S. June 5, 2017. That company offers a similar wireless multi-speaker system for listening to music throughout the home, similar to HomePod's ability to chain together multiple speakers.

Every year the World Wide Developers Conference takes place in the U.S. where developers queue up to hear about the latest updates and changes that will arrive later in the year. For those who have an Apple device streaming is much easier as Apple uses its own HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology which can be used on devices like an iPhone, iPad and MacBook.

There's been a lot of chatter about a Siri speaker to be announced at the WWDC 2017. Either way, major changes are coming down the line from Apple!

Apple is also long rumored to get into the "smart-speaker" business.

But Apple is late to the game on VR.

The company is releasing new iPad Pro models in both 10.5 and 12.9-inch sizes, marking the first time Apple has released a 10.5-inch tablet.

The new version of MacOS, which powers Apple's desktops and laptop computers will also likely be demonstrated. Called "the most powerful Mac ever, the new product will be available from December starting at $4,999".

While we've been talking about the audio capabilities of the HomePod, it also packs within the smarts of Apple's widely-known AI voice assistant - Siri.
