But more importantly, the security remains encrypted. The voice-assistant now understands context and interest of users, and what a user wants to read or access next.

Created to work with an Apple Music subscription for access to over 40 million songs, HomePod provides deep knowledge of personal music preferences and tastes and helps users discover new music.

Don't have an Apple Developer Program membership? "I'll see your message when I get where I'm going" - although presumably users will be able to edit this message.

Other than this, Siri will also be offering relevant suggestions to users based on their usage of apps like Safari, News, Mail, Messages and others.

While one is on developers, the people behind all those addictive apps that we take for granted on our smartphones, Apple announced something it has done for the first time in the nine-year history of the App store. Users can authenticate transactions on Apple Pay securely with Touch ID. You can send money from the debit or credit card stored in Apple Wallet, and it will be deposited into the recipient's Apple Pay Cash account, which is a new digital debit card.

As well as its obvious qualities as a smart speaker (Siri can tell you who a certain musician is in the song you're listening to), the device can be used to control other HomeKit devices; check the weather forecast; and listen to news briefings. It is used in 21 languages in 36 countries. Moreover, Siri will have new female and male voices which will supposedly sound "more natural". Users will be able to search for queries in multiple languages.

Your friendly (and sort of creepy) iPhone PA can now translate speech, starting out with English, French, German Chinese, Spanish and Italian and will come with improved note-taking and task management capabilities.

Apple CEO Tim Cook unveiled the latest operating system for Mac computers. The update, for now, is available as a developer preview, and will be offered for iPhone 5s and beyond, all iPad Air and iPad Pro models, iPad 5th generation, and iPad Mini 2 later this year.

This feature, however, will only be available in the U.S. on iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and later, iPad Pro, iPad 5th generation, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 and Apple Watch.

Apple plans to unleash the power of iOS 11 this coming fall. These devices will keep only the most recent messages in local storage.

Apple has also implemented changes to its portrait mode, including better low light photography through its dual cameras. The new GPU can fetch data at speeds of up to 400 Gbps, while being able to perform up to 11 teraflops, according to the company.

Meanwhile, Apple was completely redesigned from the ground up. For example, there are different sliders for volume up and down, and more. The work will be saved, even if lock screen is on. It silences notifications and stops the screen from lighting up when they arrive. The features will out for major airports as well.

Apple has introduced a "Do Not Disturb While Driving" in CarPlay.
