According to Apple, it is the fastest browser ever with features like autoplay blocking, intelligent tracking prevention that uses machine learning to block irritating content. But apps built with Apple's impressive new ARKit augmented reality platform - announced Monday at the company's 2017 Worldwide Developers Conference ( WWDC ) - won't necessarily work with your existing Apple phone or tablet.
But Apple insists that through machine learning and artificial intelligence, Siri will indeed get smarter in iOS 11 , and also learn more about how to please you with personal experiences and suggestions by learning what you're doing inside the Safari, News, Mail and Messages apps.
Elsewhere, the newly unveiled HomePod looks to muscle in on Google and Amazon's turf as Apple's first smart speaker, while the iMac Pro was also debuted in order to give legs to the ailing iMac family. An all-new thermal design features a dual centrifugal fan system, which allows the machine to deliver up to 80% more cooling capacity than other models while still letting it operate just as quietly.

The upgraded variants of the iMac powerful desktop are created to offer improved performance. Fusion Drive is now standard on all 27-inch configurations and the top-end 21.5-inch iMac . The processing power is enough to help Apple power VR, too, which will be supported in macOS High Sierra, the latest macOS operating system. The same 15-inch MacBook Pro now also offers AMD Radeon Pro 450 and Radeon Pro 555 dGPU as an option, both based on Polaris 11 GPUs.
Starting at $4,999 with a target availability of December 2017, the new iMac Pro includes four Thunderbolt 3 Ports, a built-in 10 GB Ethernet port, 1080p FaceTime Camera, improved cooling, and up to 18-core Xeon processors. All 27-inch iMacs come with Fusion drives standard, and SSDs are of course optional; we would have preferred to see SSDs standard across the board, though we can see why some not-as-demanding customers would want more internal storage (up to 2TB) over sheer speed.
