New iPhone update blocks drivers from texting behind the wheel

With this new suite, Apple came up with an updated version of Pokemon Go, that was streamed live at the conference.

The iPhone's navigation abilities using the Maps app have also been improved, and it will "know" on what lane you should be to address all of the turns on your route correctly, without having to do any sudden changes, as well as feature interior navigation directions in places like malls or airports.

Apple has announced a new smart speaker device and a new iPad Pro, as well as upgrades to its mobile and desktop operating systems. That means the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c, along with the fourth generation iPad, have dropped off the compatibility list. The iPhone 8 or iPhone X would run iOS 11 right out of the box.

Apple will introduce this feature on iOS nearly six months after the company was sued with a class action lawsuit for not introducing such a system. "HomePod packs powerful speaker technology, Siri intelligence and wireless access to the entire Apple Music library into a handsome speaker that is less than 7 inches tall, can rock most any room with distortion free music and be a helpful assistant around your home".

Siri will also be able to translate English words and phrases into different languages.

Apple's WWDC 2017 keynote was absolutely jam-packed. With Google and Microsoft already making their moves, Tim Cook's team has also jumped into the fray to conquer this next frontier in the tech industry.

Some of the new features aren't available in the beta version, such as the augmented reality experiences.

Apple then introduced a music speaker, its first hardware since Apple Watch was rolled out two years ago.

Apple has brought a new look to its control center, which merges notifications and quick settings toggle into a single screen. Another functionality added to the iMessage app is the addition of Apple Pay as an app to iMessage. Users can now make their playlists public to let their friends find and follow them.

Apple's camera improvements for iOS 11 focus on compression.

So beyond turning off your cellphone or leaving it at home, Apple has a new solution aimed at keeping drivers' eyes off the screen and on the road. Amazon Echo, for example, can read the news, provide updates on traffic and weather, read audiobooks from Audible, give information on local businesses, report sports scores, control lights and other things within your home with connected devices. Apple will also have new tools for organizing photos and creating sharable videos.
