Apple unveils smart speaker * Apple event boring but promising * Apple updates computers for pros * What's your old iPhone worth?

"The most important announcement was Apple's entry into the smart speaker market with the HomePod", Goldman Sachs analyst Simona Jankowski wrote. Apple Music now has expanded social features, Apple Maps includes indoor maps for major airports and shopping centers, and Apple News will keep you updated with personalized Siri-powered top story suggestions.

Even though Apple has slowly and perhaps reluctantly increased the available storage tiers on the iPhone, running out of storage space remains a frustrating reality that many users still have to contend with. "Music is deep in our DNA, dating back from iTunes and iPod". I can see the lightbulbs go off when I say, "You know Pokémon Go, where you hold up the phone and see the monsters?" AR adds a virtual layer of information and characters on the real world scenes that you can interact with.

"The price tag is notably higher than both Amazon and Google's smart home offerings", he pointed out, "and while it will no doubt appeal to Apple fans, there is little to suggest - at least from the initial details - that this will directly compete against those Echo and Home devices". Apple actually has an official app to help you make the move your data wirelessly from Android to iOS. Users can set up surround sound music with the speakers they already have. It's also more expensive than Echo View ($230) and Echo Dot ($50).

At the ongoing Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California, renowned tech giant Apple revealed a range of products and features for its devices.

The two speakers also have other functionalities aside from playing music. But their approaches are different. Messengers from the texting application will now also sync to iCloud as well as any Apple product, to which a user is signed in. In addition, ARKit brings deep software support for plane estimation with basic boundaries, ambient lighting estimation, scale estimation, and Xcode app templates. This makes Amazon's speaker more functional and versatile. "Using Business Chat, your customers can get answers to questions, resolve issues and complete transactions on their iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch".

When the DNDWD feature is enabled on your iPhone it will sense, via Bluetooth if you are connected or use Wi-Fi to triangulate your speed and position to determine when you're in motion.
