New speaker? Apple hopped on bandwagon before

Most certainly not! Rumor has it that Apple has new hardware to announce at the show, and the opening keynote would be the flawless time for the unveiling to be made.

Apple's annual conference for app developers begins Monday in San Jose, California.

Another standout feature for iOS developers is Apple's ARKit, a software development kit for creating augmented reality (AR) applications through the use of cameras on iPhones and iPads.

Perhaps the biggest one will be coming to your iPhone and iPad with iOS 11.

Siri has taken acting lessons and now delivers his or her lines with a little more human-like inflection. The speaker (or Siri Speaker - as people are calling it) will be able to do all major things that Amazon Echo and Google Home are capable of doing, but what will make it special is the fact that it can replace those Apple TVs and iPads that you now use as hubs for controlling your home while you're away.

Apple nodded to several up-and-coming technology trends, unveiling new device features touching on virtual reality, online privacy and a form of artificial intelligence called machine learning. Improved navigation features can also suggest lanes when you're driving, so there's no more last minute lane switching in order to make your turn.

Finally, you can also watch all the action from WWDC 2017 on your Apple TV.

And you can more easily control music, with intelligent playlists based on your workout and native Bluetooth support. In the long run it could even allow Apple to build processors without 32-bit backward compatibility-the space that would've been spent on those transistors could also be used for other things. With iOS 11, you'll be able to send a friend cash in iMessage. The new mobile OS uses an updated Maps app and uses Wifi and Bluetooth connectivity to formulate a Doppler effect to work out when an iPhone users is driving and prompt a "Do not disturb while driving" option to prevent drivers from being distracted by undesired notifications on their iPhone when behind the wheel.

The money can be stored on a virtual card and used with Apple Pay, which Apple expects will be accepted in 50 percent of USA retailers by the end of the year.

This automatically displays the information that's most important to you, so whenever you raise your wrist the face will dynamically update with relevant information. Apple is also bringing improvements to playing music and recording fitness activities.

The new MacOS High Sierra will also be rolled out later this year, offering a smart photos feature to make it easier to find what you're looking for.
