The iPad looks like the future of the MacBook with iOS 11

06 Juin, 2017, 10:22 | Author: Claudine Rigal

The hardware debut, a rarity at the annual developers conference that traditionally features software and only minor hardware updates, came as analysts and investors watch for signs of the world's largest publicly traded company's next blockbuster product a decade after the introduction of the iPhone. It will play music while helping people manage their lives and homes.

The new iPad gets Apple's usual array of cases and smart keyboards.

An internet-connected speaker called HomePod is coming in December for about $350.

The HomePod can do a host of things similar to the Echo and Google Home, like control smart devices with HomeKit integration, set timers and answer general knowledge questions, but Apple was clear that its intention with this device was to build a great piece of audio equipment first, and a smart gadget second.

The Echo, released in 2015, and Google Home, released past year, were the first entrants in a promising market. The user can override this prompt by saying he or she is a passenger. One thing we know: augmented reality nearly always makes for a cool demo, even in its simplest form as when an Apple executive made a faux steaming cup of coffee appear on an otherwise barren tabletop. Google Maps already does both. Most improvements will be under the hood, including an all-new file system, VR features and support for the new HEVC video standard.

iOS 11 on iPadApple iOS 11 makes multitasking on iPad even more powerful with a new customizable Dock that provides quick access to frequently used apps and documents from any screen, and a redesigned app switcher makes it easier to move between pairs of active apps, used in Split View and now Slide Over.

Apple needed to impress professionals in order to keep more of them from fleeing the Mac, and it went for shock-and-awe with the new iMac Pro that can scale up to an 18-core Intel Xeon CPU, 128GB of RAM, and a 4TB SSD drive. And a new format called High Efficiency Image File Format can reduce the file size of the pics you take on an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus.

Apple is introducing a new platform for developers to help them bring high-quality AR experiences to iPhone and iPad using the built-in camera, powerful processors and motion sensors in iOS devices.

Apple is also bringing the ability to pay someone back through its payment service, Apple Pay, much as PayPal and other services already do. "Together with iOS 11 these new iPad Pro models will radically change what users can do with iPad". The new model starts at $649 and will start shipping next week.
