Apple overhauls App Store

The short and fat sound tube features spacial awareness which is used to tune the speaker to give a better aural experience in the room the Homepod is in. The new 10.5in iPad Pro starts from US$649 and is available to order today from Apple.com in flavours of 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB.

What beast is this?

Apple's iOS 11 is finally official, which means you can already try it out for yourself if you're comfortable with running the first iOS 11 betas that Apple made available after the WWDC 2017 keynote.

Yes, only just over a year after Apple launched the 9.7in iPad Pro, they've killed it off in favour of a slightly bigger 10.5in model. That goes a long way considering that the iPad Pro 10.5in is almost all screen, after all.

That's not all users will "see".

What I do appreciate (lots) is the excellent speaker system that iPad Pro models have come with.

Just like the iMac, the Apple MacBooks too got the updates.

iPad Pro is equipped with Promotion technology and supports 120Hz refresh rates, the highest ever found in top grade desktop computers.

Apple's Core ML news follows Google Inc.'s announcement last month at its I/O developer conference that it is also working on bringing machine learning to mobile devices.

Cool tech but ProMotion is a bad name.

It's obvious that you should not be looking at your phone when driving and the new safety feature will ensure you do exactly that.

Apple didn't talk about the said feature when discussing the new feature set for the next iteration of its mobile operating system but is expected to discuss the same in-depth later this week. It also now has new intel processors.

The iMac Pro will be available in Space Grey. Despite the price tag, the Apple Pencil is a must buy for your Pro tablet.

Using Business Chat, your customers can get answers to questions, resolve issues and complete transactions on their iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. The HomePod lets use your voice to play music and control HomeKit devices like smart light bulbs or thermostats, as well as letting you chat with Siri.

App and Games are separated out into their own tabs, and individual pages have undergone a similar redesign which Apple says makes it easier for developers to use to sell their wares to customers.

The lock screen and notifications window will be merged while the App store is also getting a revamp and will be launched along with iOS 11 later this year. Called High Sierra, it recognises more faces automatically, which should make it easier to organise photos, and will offer more photo editing tools. "The update features an enhanced Workout app and introduces GymKit".

High Sierra will also soon support external graphics via Thunderbolt 3 and Metal 2's introduction. That should help Apple reposition the iPad as a work device capable of carrying out all the usual functionality users want from their laptops.

Alongside this, the company has announced upgrades to all its operating systems- watchOS, TvOS, macOS, and iOS. It includes new features for watchfaces, such as a new Siri-based watchface. Its primary role will be to enable its users to send money directly to their contacts with one tap.

Users will also be given monthly challenges to encourage excercise. The wait has been now over as users can watch the Amazon Prime Video exclusive TV shows in Apple TV.
