IOS 11 will make these iPhones and iPads obsolete

Since the conference is focused on developers - the people who make your favorite apps - Apple also showed what software updates it has in store for later this year.

Here we take a look at the iOS 11 features for iPhone and iPad.

The mobile operating system will also get a new file management system that is much more closely aligned with the traditional file systems found on desktop and laptop computers. It would be Apple's first new product since its smartwatch in 2015. Your phone automatically detects when you're driving via Bluetooth and Wifi. An "I'm a passenger" button will let you override the lockout.

In urgent situations, recipients of that message will be able to reply with the word urgent in order to push a message through. Messages will be synced across all Apple devices as well with "Messages in iCloud". Only the most recent messages will be kept on the device to save storage space. Think of it as how all of your Facebook Messages are the same everywhere. Also, migrating from an Android phone might not succeed. Remember when the Apple Pay really got things going in paying by smartphone? Peer-to-peer payments are a response to the popularity of Venmo. The Siri watchface uses machine learning to determine what information is most useful to you at a given point in time. The next version would be iOS 11, which does not feature significant user interface changes but comes with nifty features.

Of course, being armed with Siri means it also functions as an assistant.

It's not just about sonic power, but sonic smarts too: the Apple HomePod is spatially aware, and can adjust its sound to suit its placement in any room.

Apple has upgraded its digital assistant Siri ahead of its roll out of its new HomePod speaker, which is due to go on sale in selected markets in December.

A new version of Apple's AirPlay wireless audio technology will allow users to synchronise audio on multiple speakers throughout the home.

Apple's Siri speaker, HomePod, is priced at $349.

Adding on to last year's major refinements, there are now several new watch faces. It will also be possible to exchange data between gym equipment and the watch. It's described as an "intelligent, proactive" assistant.

And Apple Watch is bringing Siri front and center. The Toy Story characters have playful new animations.

The new MacOS High Sierra will also be rolled out later this year, offering a smart photos feature to make it easier to find what you're looking for. Apple has also redesigned the App Store with the "App of the Day" making a comeback.
