Siri inside this speaker, will be able to do more, to play music from the Apple's streaming service.

Siri is getting a new voice, and the Mac is getting a new name.

HomePod is a seven-inch-tall speaker that has Apple's digital assistant built in.

Apple is jumping into the smart home speaker market with it's "HomePod".

This is basically a successor to Sierra which was announced previous year.

Besides, the speaker is equipped with six microphones, through which you can trigger the Apple's own VA, calling "Hey Siri".

Apple unveiled a few new technologies at its Worldwide Developers Conference Monday.

Apple says its Safari browser on the Mac will try to guard your privacy by identifying and blocking data files that track you as you move from website to website.

I think this is inspired by existing smart speakers like Amazon Echo and Google Home. Facebook, HTC and Sony have high-end VR systems, too. But so far, interest has been strongest among gamers, developers and hardware makers rather than everyday users.

Apple Pay- Apple Pay has added a feature of person to person payments and is also integrated with iMessage app. Siri was introduced as a feature in the iPhone 4S in 2011, three years before Amazon came out with Alexa and the Echo.

A "do not disturb" mode for drivers will be part of the iOS 11 operating system, which is slated for release this fall for both iPhone and iPad.

"Just like we did with portable music, we want to reinvent home music", CEO Tim Cook said. The HomePod supports a list of features, including unit conversion, messages, news, podcast playback, reminders, translation, general knowledge, weather, traffic info, sports scores, setting alarms, timers, and will also work as a HomeKit bridge.

It also enhanced its workout app to, for instance, support high intensity interval training.

The Apple Watch can also be used to send money to fellow iOS users through Apple Pay.

With GymKit, according to Apple, customers using their favourite cardio equipment will soon be able to pair their Apple Watch directly to treadmills, ellipticals, indoor bikes or stair steppers from global manufacturers such as Life Fitness and Technogym with a simple tap.
