'Do Not Disturb While Driving' feature coming to iPhone iOS 11

With June comes WWDC, and Apple has kicked off the trade show with the usual opening keynote.

With AirPlay 2, Apple is adding speaker control to the Home app.

CEO Tim Cook announced the app during Apple's annual conference for software programmers on Monday.

Your iMessage conversations are now also synched across all your Apple devices automatically which means everything from conversations to individual messages can now be synched and deleted across all devices. Google already tries to be proactive with its Assistant on Android phones and Google Home speaker.

Whenever the phone is connected to a auto using either Bluetooth or a cable, or if the vehicle is moving, the phone will withhold any notifications for things like text messages or news updates.

A speaker may be the star of the event, but there's much more on the agenda. The current version is just Sierra.

The secret is officially out: Apple is taking on Amazon and Google with its own smart speaker, called the HomePod.

Apple has made a few interesting changes in Siri. For Apple, having one would further broaden the role that its software, services and gadgets play in people's lives.

First and foremost, when does Apple's WWDC-based presentation begin?

The official launch of the Files app is projected to take place later today at WWDC, where Apple is also expected to preview iOS 11 and to reveal more about its overhauled hardware strategy.

Amazon makes little or no profit selling the high-end $179 Echo, which mostly serves as a foothold in consumers' homes and a way to get them to sign up for Amazon Prime and buy more products. 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. More what your iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch will be able to do than the hardware itself. The company, at the Worldwide Developers Conference, has announced a big update to the operating system which runs on a huge number of iPhones and iPads. According to this leak, the Cupertino company is preparing a new file management app for the iOS 11.

There's also expected to be new operating systems for Mac and for Apple TV.

To revive interest in its once-hot tablets, Apple is introducing a 10.5-inch iPad Pro with more storage, a better camera and room for a full-size keyboard.

Stay on topic - This helps keep the thread focused on the discussion at hand.
