What to Expect at WWDC 2017?
5. Siri Speaker
In 2017, Apple will look to eat away the smart speaker market. Apple plans to unveil the Siri Speaker at WWDC and will release it soon.
The name of the product hasn’t been revealed yet and it will be interesting to see what it will be called. This new device will look something like this.
Apple’s smart speaker will bring high-quality sound, integration with third-party applications and compatibility with HomeKit.
Siri Speaker will be a direct competitor of Google Home and Amazon Echo. The smart speaker market has been dominated by Google and Amazon.
It will be great to have a smart speaker for us Apple fanatics as well.
4. New MacBook Pro
A new Macbook is bound to arrive at WWDC 2017. Rumors about 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro models have been doing the rounds lately. Apple may also push a new 12-inch MacBook as well.
These new models will receive a powerful hardware upgrade. They will come loaded with powerful processors, more RAM, and Touch Bar.
3. iOS 11
Apple will showcase its new operating system – iOS 11. Not much is known about iOS 11 at this point.
However, on thing is sure – Apple will steal a lot of features from Cydia tweaks and implement them in iOS 11.
iOS 11 will bring massive upgrades for Siri. Siri will now have better integration with third-party services, synchronization with other devices and will be much more responsive.
Apple will implement the highly requested “Night Mode” feature in iOS 11. This mode will allow you to use your device in the night with ease while saving your battery.
Thanks to Eclipse 4 and Noctis tweaks, jailbreak users have been enjoying this feature for months.
I will soon do a write-up on Cydia tweaks Apple plans to steal for iOS 11.
