Apple to showcase new features for its gadgets

If you want to see the latest and greatest coming from Apple, you'll want to tune in to the tech company's Worldwide Developers Conference kicking off today.

It's expected to be a big one this year, with Apple's dev-focused event set to push software to the sidelines in favour of a bunch of new hardware announcements. The thread provides information on the iPhone 7s, iPhone 8, the Siri Speaker, an Apple glasses project, new iMac's, MacBooks and what looks like the entire portfolio of Apple products that are in development.

We've rounded up everything we can expect from Apple's WWDC keynote, which kicks off today at 6pm United Kingdom time, below. Cook is expected to give an overview of what Apple has been working on.

They come as excitement mounts around Apple's next-generation handset, a device that's widely expected to be formally unveiled in September.

Now starting with iOS 11 however, Apple might finally lift a few restrictions in the operating system and the Files app could be the file manager that provides users with more control over their files.

More than 1,000 Apple engineers will be on site to help 5,000 developers hone their craft and share ideas. And while the question whether this is a good or bad decision is still open, all facts point to it being overturned with the release of iOS 11.iPhone is unlikely to get new updates during WWDC event. However, there are expectations from Apple to talk about at least one new product today.

That means the "Files" app could also be a default app that can be removed and re-installed. The iPad Pro is now in a 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch form factor, too small and too big for some. We can expect new GPUs in the MacBook Air and other refreshments in the internal specs. It is rumoured the Siri improvements will also go beyond what is capable on the iPhone and Mac, with the company slated to introduce an Amazon Echo and Google Home competitor.

Moving to the Siri-based speaker, the Foxconn insider said that it will be powered by an A9 processor and it will likely to launch until later this year.
