Apple Music gets some updates too, as you'll be able to see what your friends have been listening too thanks to new public profiles. Apple says the device is aware of the walls around the room, so it can adapt the speakers and channels in the mix to optimize the direction of the sound.

In terms of hardware, the biggest update announced at WWDC 2017 is the refreshed iMac lineup. It may not be first but Apple always does it better. HomePod costs $349 and begins shipping in December.

Apple's HomePod, is a sleek looking smart speaker powered by Siri that in theory should quickly rival Google Home and Amazon Echo. And yes, you can control the speaker by saying "Hey Siri"! Apple will also release a developer preview of Business Chat following this session. Also, actions will become more intuitive as apps will be suggested with context based on what you are working on. The speaker will be available in white and black colour options.

Here we take a look at the iOS 11 features for iPhone and iPad. The first one in this list would be the Siri. HomePod is seven inches tall, and is intended as a "breakthrough" speaker in addition to being a personal assistant.

The update to Siri means it can now translate speech with a number of languages including English, Chinese, German, Italian, French and Spanish. Loop and Bounce effects can be added into live photos and long exposure can capture time and movement. Soon, you'll be able to send fellow Apple users money through an app that's integrated into iMessage, the default messaging app on Apple's mobile devices. You can also now control your music in the Workout app.

Very much a device for consumer use, the HomePod is potentially an interesting prospect for software and online service developers, who are likely to be presented with another smart home device on which they could create apps for or more likely integrate their existing apps with.

However, the highlight of the new iPad Pro is its camera. The new software would be released to compatible iPhone and iPad devices across the globe this fall, the company said.
