The company announced that Portrait Mode pictures using the iPhone 7 Plus would now using optical image stabilisation, True Tone flash and HDR, which should lead to significant improvements in portraiture.
“The conference will be live-streamed through the Apple Developer website (developer.apple.com/wwdc) and on the WWDC app for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV”.
Ahead of Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference today, and the expected announcement of iOS 11, the company briefly removed older, 32-bit iOS applications from appearing in the App Store’s search results.
Apple is clearly trying to position its desktop and laptop computers to appeal more to creative professionals, including game developers. There’s a new visual interface too and Siri can now translate as well.
The new feature would allow different users to access their own iTunes and iCloud libraries, as well as potentially allowing for personalised Home screen layouts.
Notably, the iOS 11 update is meant for the iPhone 5s and newer devices, all iPad Air and iPad Pro tablets, iPad 5th generation and newer devices, iPad mini 2 and newer devices, and the iPod touch 6th generation.
Something Siri’s been behind on when compared to Google’s Assistant is knowing when and where you’re going. Per sources, a new MacBook and a MacBook Pro might debut at WWDC. Much like the A.I.in the film, the new Siri will share data between the other “Siris” in your life, so the assistant on the Mac will know the same things about you that the Siri on the iPhone does.
The App Store is also getting a makeover, with tabs for games, apps that are notable that day, and a tab just for non-gaming apps. Then you’re stuffed since you can’t change it to Spotify or Google Play Music. For example, you don’t get to select which of the files you’ve downloaded to set as a screensaver. The service, which has been available on the iPhone for more than a year, will use machine learning to adapt automatically to a user’s routines, serving up prompts for running apps for those who regularly run in the morning or afternoon.
As of 12 May, Apple TV costs £129 for the 32GB version and £169 for the 64GB version.
However, Siri has fallen behind in the race owing to Apple’s aversion to opening itself to third-party developers, according to analysts. Apple is also doubling the storage space on these models. Apple is also bringing improvements to playing music and recording fitness activities.
Apple will soon introduce a new way for businesses to communicate with customers.
iOS 11 will ship in the Autumn.
If Apple unveils a rival to internet-connected speakers from Amazon and Google, it wouldn’t be the first time that Apple hops on the bandwagon of a technology product popularized by a competitor.
Without any details from Apple we have to speculate on what Files is for. Apple TV is no more a hobby for Apple, as the company has been eyeing to offer a standalone TV subscription for quite sometime.
