Top 5 features introduced in iOS 11 already available on Android

Taiwan's HTC says virtual reality headset will be compatible with Apple's new OS

It's finally here! Apple on Monday unveiled iOS 11, its next major iOS release, demoing a bunch of interesting features coming to the iPhone and iPad - in fact, the iPad will have a slew of extra features that should make it an even more compelling laptop replacement.

It's called "Do Not Disturb While Driving", and will be part of Apple's iOS 11.

Michelle Obama is speaking at Apple's developer's conference in San Jose on Tuesday, but unless you're one of the lucky people able to attend in person, you might not find out what she has to say.

This feature, however, will only be available in the USA on iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and later, iPad Pro, iPad 5th generation, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 and Apple Watch. Apple is also adding CoreML to the mix to give developers on-device machine learning capabilities to allow them to make apps that will predict, learn, and become more intelligent.

HomePod will be available starting in December, initially in Australia, Britain and the US.

"Apple has embarked on a complete overhaul of Siri as it responds to considerable competition and heightening user expectations", Blaber said via email.

Apple's HomePod attracted the biggest crowd at the WWDC hands-on area.

Cook also announced that Amazon's video app will come to Apple's TV streaming box later this year.

Texting while driving is 6 times more likely to result in an accident than drunk driving.

Other new watchfaces include a kaleidoscope and new characters such as Woody, Jesse, and Buzz from the Toy Story movie franchise. Now, everybody is eagerly expecting to see what novelties will those new updates bring.

Apple said that watch wearers will be able to link their devices with the gym equipment through NFC. Don't worry, the iOS 11, macOS High Sierra and tvOS 11 Public Betas are on their way.

The company also showcased some impressive software, including support for virtual reality and an SDK enabling developers to leverage the technology.

If you're a serious Apple user, you'll understand that a Macbook, while pretty, isn't the most productive device on offer. The new versions are fueled by the latest 7th-generation Intel Kaby Lake processor.

The newly updated MacBook laptops are now available.

Apple is introducing an iPad Pro in a new size in an attempt to revive interest in its once hot-selling line of tablets. This service also works through Siri so users can ask her to pay someone or transfer money.

Siri will now be able to perform translations in various languages including English, Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish. Or download our app from the iOS or Android app stores today. It has been edited by FactorDaily for grammar, language and style.
