Let s begin with iOS 11. The new operating system for iPhones and iPads comes with some major bug fixes, performance improvements and a host of new features. The new OS comes with some improvements to iMessage and deeper integration with iCloud. Additionally, iMessage in the US now has Apple Pay integrated within it, allowing users to make person-to-person payments. Also, Siri is smarter now — it can translate and will learn to spot your interests, and offer recommendations. Besides that there are some changes to the design and feel of the control center and the App Store.

Besides the new operating systems, the other definite highlight of the event was the HomePod, which probably the sole announcement at the conference that drew actual applause. For the longest time, everybody speculated these home speakers to be called the Siri speakers. While the guess at the nomenclature was an off shot, but as expected these home speakers are aimed to stand tall against the likes of Google Home and Amazon Echo.

And considering this was a brand new hardware from Apple, it got all sorts of reaction from social media. It’s mostly being trolled for its looks, it price tag of $349 (Rs 22,400 approximately), and the promises of security, though. ALSO READ: WWDC 2017: Apple Music now has 27 million paid subscribers
