Siri in your living room: Apple unveils $349 HomePod

WWDC took place on Monday at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in California.

It is likely to go on sale in Q2-Q3 in the 2017 at a slightly higher price than Google Home or Alexa.

"It's not the first time specific features for China have been mentioned at Apple's global conferences", Jia Mo, a Shanghai-based analyst of research firm Canalys, said.

Watch the keynote presentation from 06/05/17 by Tim Cook on YouTube via Time. Apple generally makes crucial software announcements at WWDC each year, and this year too we can expect the same.

Unsurprisingly, Siri was the focus of this year's event.

The event started with Apple CEO welcoming the audience, praising the Apple developer community which already has 16 million registered developers and added three million previous year.

Tune in and watch the live stream! There are many changes to the core OS of the Apple Watch.

Safari, Apple's web browser, seeks to make users' online experience smoother and less annoying.

The highly anticipated annual event is considered a rare look inside one of Apple's fastest-growing businesses: services.

Alongside this, the company has announced upgrades to all its operating systems- watchOS, TvOS, macOS, and iOS. Would you do us a favor? Your computer will need to be on Windows 10.

Amazon has not yet disclosed whether the Apple TV will return to its online store as a result of this deal, but we will let you know further details as soon as we can. Well, here are four things Apple WWDC 2017 might reveal to the people.

Another cool feature called Automatic Setup allows users to hold a new "iPhone or iPad near an iOS device or Mac you already own, and many of your personal settings, preferences, and iCloud Keychain passwords are quickly and securely imported". Some features of iOS 11 could include an updated user interface, a "dark mode".

From brand new iMacs to revamped iPads, Apple has revamped nearly every personal computer and tablet it has to offer, and also showcased its upcoming operating software for new devices. However, this year, it is widely expected that Apple will announce new hardware as well. The HomePod speaker has six built-in microphones compared to 1 on Siri, so response rate should be much better.

Every year the World Wide Developers Conference takes place in the United States where developers queue up to hear about the latest updates and changes that will arrive later in the year. In addition to the iPad, Apple is launching new sleeves and accessories, like a leather sleeve for both that start at $129.
