iOS 11 features Apple didn’t talk about at WWDC 2017

iOS 11 features Apple didn’t talk about at WWDC 2017

Naturally, Apple had to prioritize what it wanted the public to know, leaving the fine print for others to find out on their own. And perhaps it doubly intended to leave out some of the nitty gritty, in case they don’t turn out to be quite popular. Here are just some of those details that Apple conveniently, or inconveniently, left out, and why some of them might be worth keeping an eye on.

iPad Pro with iOS 11 isn’t enough to compete with the Surface Pro

iPad Pro with iOS 11 isn’t enough to compete with the Surface Pro

As someone who has uncharacteristically fallen in love with his 9.7-inch iPad Pro, the revelation of iOS 11’s features was like an answer to long-held wishes. An expanded dock, a file manager, drag and drop. These do make the iPad Pro an even more convincing PC, or at least laptop, replacement. But as someone who also owns a well-aged Surface Pro 3, the iPad Pro is still a few leagues away from toppling the Surface Pro and its kin. Because unless Apple makes very drastic changes, the iPad, even with iOS 11, is still pretty much a gigantic iPhone.

Siri Speaker up close: this is Apple HomePod

This morning Apple revealed the HomePod, their first "home speaker" - or Siri Speaker, if you prefer. This device has the same processor as the most modern iPhone, no display, and a much more powerful set of speakers than an iPhone. It needs to be plugged in to a physical wall socket and it's able to do a litany of tasks if you ask it - through Siri, of course. Today we're having a closer look at Apple official.
