However, for iOS 11 users, the Wi-Fi sharing functionality removes this step from the process, letting you wirelessly send the password to their iPhones and iPads.

What will the new products look like?

Those who want to watch the live stream via an Apple TV can do so via the Apple Events app that should appear on the home screen shortly before the keynote begins.

Additionally, more open third-party support that will allow developers freedom to integrate their apps with the voice-controlled assistant.

Until tomorrow at 10 am we will let you know what we heard on what we will see during the press conference. In doing so, Apple showed iPhone and iPad users all of the exciting new features they'll have access to this fall, once iOS 11 is released to the public.

What new features does iOS 11 have? The new iPad lines have new and enhanced display features like brighter and better color reproduction with a 120Hz refresh rate. The new file system is built from ground up for flash and SSD storage.

Cook also launched iOS 11 with over 10 new features.

While the phone will still work (and it's a little bit wonderful that it still does), users won't be able to download the latest apps or security upgrades to protect against hackers and vulnerabilities. The service uses the card already registered with Apple's Wallet app and pays funds into a new Apple Pay Cash account.

Apple Watch has emerged as the market leader for smartwatches - but it has competition after including basic fitness trackers in the count. We will mostly see improvements for both operating systems. Apple said that makes the Mac a great platform for development virtual-reality experiences.

More news: This is a HomePod, the Siri speaker

This year, alongside the usual iOS and macOS updates, Apple is expected to announce a Siri smart speaker. There might be a focus on improved video content and content discovery. The upcoming MacBook is expected to come with Intel's latest Kaby Lake processors and up to 16GB of RAM (up from 8GB of RAM in the current generation). Apple has not previewed all of them at WWDC 2017 though, with one of the lesser-known additions being Wi-Fi sharing.

We have not heard much about the upgrade but we have heard an upgrade to the MacBook family of products.

MacBook Pros will be shipped with Intel's Kaby Lake processors and faster SSDs.

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

Job offers for artificial intelligence (AI) experts have been spotted in the U.S., which the website says could mean Apple plans to "discuss an improvement in its Siri voice recognition technology". The speaker is said to be equipped with a camera with facial recognition technology and various sensors to measure a room's dimension and adjust audio accordingly.

The new iOS will now synchronize messages across iOS and macOS automatically.

Safari, Apple's web browser, seeks to make users' online experience smoother and less annoying. "Amazon is coming to the TV app and all Apple TVs later this year with Amazon Prime Video", Apple CEO Tim Cook told the crowd before highlighting just how massive Amazon's video library is.

The new 10.5 inch with 64GB iPad will have a starting price of $649, and the 12.9 inch with 64GB iPad will be sold for $799.
