Apple Debuts HomePod Smart Speaker

Apple has prepared developers for this transition, announcing through an iOS 10 beta earlier this year that apps will have to support 64-bit hardware in the upcoming version of iOS - that would be iOS 11 - to work on those devices.

It is hard to tell at this point in time, but the good news is that according to a report from iDropNews (via 9to5Mac), word has it that Apple will be embedding Touch ID into the display of the iPhone 8.

Developer Steven Troughton-Smith shows in the following video various instances where drag and drop can be used, and some of them might not even come to mind if you're already used to doing things on the iPad a certain way. Or at least they are for anyone with an iPhone running iOS 11. Another way the apps could work on iOS 11 could be with the status bar being blackened out. Following the digital payments' success, Apple Pay has expanded the person-to-person payments, which has positioned Apple among various such services. As I noted in my Apple iPad Pro (2017) Preview, that device will only get truly interesting once iOS 11 is available.

Should you end up having downloader's remorse, know that you can downgrade to iOS 10.3.2, which is the most up-to-date version of the Apple software.

With quick start, people can setup their iOS devices in a rapid fashion. It is also going to be particularly useful for the new Files app, which is also available on the iPhone. This helps you to write accurately and lets the ink flow more realistically.

It's now unclear at what point this year the service will be made Apple TV compatible.

The HomePod speaker looks to combine sound quality and voice control to compete with rivals such as Amazon and Google. Also, Siri can now perform translations in various languages like English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Spanish. Apple has described it as "on-device learning", which can sync with your system and yet remain "private".

But perhaps the biggest bummer of the iOS 11 is the removal of social media integration. When users get paid, they receive the money in their new Apple Pay Cash account. "Indoor maps will allow you to see which restaurants are past airport security".

Apart from the new generation of its Desktop series, Apple has improved the entire line-up of iMacs with new generation of Processor and a number of uncountable features and improvements. The news here is the calendar widget (or presumably any other one) being popped out from the right side of the screen.
