iMessages in iCloud will now automatically synchronize across devices, but remain end-to-end encrypted.

Apple has detailed iOS 11, the latest version of its mobile operating system for iPhone and iPad.

A new feature called "ProMotion" will double the max refresh rate to 120Hz, enabling smoother and more response to video and other content.

Apple fourth major announcement was the announcement of iOS 11, which included the obligatory "taking it to 11" comment from Cook.

It can also now be used for person-to-person payments.

Apple also adds that the subscription model introduction has bumped the paid subscriptions as it saw 58 percent more paid subscriptions compared to over a year ago. Apple is leaning into artificial intelligence (AI) with improved machine learning and on-device learning aimed at making Siri more predictive and proactive.

With iOS 11, deep learning takes place on the iOS device, allowing for Siri to perform translations in various languages, such as English German, Spanish and Chinese, as well as predicting what a user might do, write or search next.

Apple on Monday rolled out new Siri capabilities to better integrate the voice-activated assistant across devices, a move that comes as the service faces stiff competition from rival offerings like Amazon.com's Alexa. Advanced optical image stabilisation and an ƒ/1.8 aperture along with a 7MP FaceTime HD camera and 12MP camera.

You can now play around with Live Photos.

The Memories album now has automatic re-orientation in video playback when you flip your iPhone around. The updated Control Center will offer quick controls to features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, orientation lock, music controls, and more on one page. Your iPhone will now intelligently know if you're driving and then helpfully turn off all the notifications on your phone.

The company introduced iOS 11, the next version of the software that powers the iPhone and iPad.

Apple Maps will get lane guidance for highways and floor plans for indoor malls and airports.

"It's all about keeping your eyes on the road", Federighi said. It's a lot sexier now, with big information cards which help you discover new apps.

Using AirPlay 2, Apple HomeKit will now allow you to create multi room audio setups in the Home app. "It has to. So many people have made a lot of money in this trade".

Phil Schiller, Apple's marketing chief, announced a redesigned App Store, getting huge applause from the developers in the crowd.

You can expect to see new applications that will augment the way you view, interact and work this fall.
