The Apple WWDC 2017 keynote has now wrapped up. Amazon's Prime Video service has always been notably absent from the Apple TV's list of apps.

Software updates are being rolled out across all systems and are expected to land in the summer, with the new macOS High Sierra boasting virtual reality support and improved graphics, as well as improvements to Safari, Mail and split view capabilities.

The enhanced Siri can now also translate English words and phrases into Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

"Siri understands context, your interests, and how you use your device", Mashable quoted Craig Federighi as saying.

"It's great to be back in San Jose, the heart of Silicon Valley and right down the street from our new campus", Apple CEO Tim Cook said in his opening remarks.

Between the iOS 11 announcements and new 10.5-inch iPad Pro unveiling, however, was a smaller announcement sure to generate a big reaction.

It also allows users to send and receive payments from contacts via iMessage. "I'll see your message when I get where I'm going" - although presumably users will be able to edit this message. Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of marketing, mentioned that the speaker can execute acoustic modeling in real-time. While the other software features are excellent, boring, incremental or irrelevant - Apple's updates to CarPlay, its suite of apps designed specifically to work with a compatible in-car infotainment set-up caught our eye. It asked developer to make all submitted apps on the App Store to be 64-bit compatible by June 2015. There are a few new watchfaces, including some new animated Toy Story watchfaces, a kaleidoscope watchface and a Siri-enabled watchface, featuring machine learning to surface reminders and information that's relevant to you at the time.

The iPhone screen will also be locked to keep drivers from using many apps while driving.

ARKit is set to launch as part of iOS 11 later this year.

You will also be able to create continuous video loops with new Loop and Bounce effects.

Apple's new voice-controlled home speaker, called the HomePod, is its challenge to Amazon Echo and Google Home in the smart home assistant space. The user will no longer have to swap between multiple tabs. Hence, discovering apps and games is easier than ever before.
