Here is More on the Announcements that Were Featured in WWDC 2017 :
HomePod is Apple’s answer to Amazon’s echo and Google’s home. It is a 7 inches speaker that works similarly as Echo and Home. This fabricated speaker is developed smartly and does a number of jobs. It can control IoT connected devices and can also play music for the users. It can help to provide updates on the calendar. And the best thing about HomePod is that it can be controlled by talking to Siri, Apple’s intelligent personal assistance.
Apple is continually trying to convince the users about iPad’s worth as the laptops. For average person, Apple’s iPad could work as a replacement of laptop (as per Apple’s believe). Apple has recently launched its 12.9 inches iPad pro along with an innovative 10.5 inches model having smaller bezels. Both these devices have brighter screens as well as faster processors. What makes these new iPads different from others is the use of innovative iOS 11 software.
This time Apple is trying something different with its new series of watches. These smartwatches are going to have Siri’s assistance having a Siri backed watch face. Depending upon a number of factors such as the time of the day, the amount of exercise done and other similar factors, Siri will suggest a number of suggestions to the users.
AR reality was the buzzword in the WWDC this year. The technology got popularity with the amazing Pokemon Go AR embedded mobile game. Google is planning some major innovations with AR in order to grab the attention of more and more audience towards its products. The USP of AR embedded games is that they take you to a virtual world where things seem real to the users.
