Now that Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference keynote is behind us, we can finally take a step back and recap everything Apple announced today. The event was packed full of new information relating to nearly everything Apple offers, so head below for easy access to information on it all.
The big reveal today at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose was the unveiling of the company’s much anticipated standalone Siri speaker device officially called ‘HomePod’.
Apple announced a new ‘iMac Pro’ model today set to arrive for customers this December and we had a chance to get a first look. Apple wasn’t actually allowing press to get hands-on with the new machine, but we did get an opportunity to get up close and personal with some video of the new iMac Pro (below).
It’s WWDC day and it’s expected to be a big one. Apple is set to announce new versions of its software platforms, iOS 11, macOS 10.13, tvOS 11 and watchOS 4.
We are also expecting new Mac hardware, a 10.5-inch iPad Pro and the unveiling of a ‘Siri Speaker’ home voice assistant. There will probably be other surprises as well. The keynote kicks off at 10 AM PT — 9to5Mac will be covering the whole thing live.

Today’s the day that Apple will show us the new goodies to expect in iOS 11, macOS 10.13, watchOS 4 and tvOS 11 as the annual Worldwide Developer Conference kicks off. But while the event may have a software focus, we’re of course also expecting to see some new hardware.
In particular, a new 10.5-inch iPad Pro, fitting a larger screen into a casing only marginally larger than the existing 9.7-inch model thanks to smaller bezels; MacBook refreshes; and a Siri Speaker competing with Google Home and Amazon Echo …
TV app appearing for some users in UK and Australia ahead of WWDC keynote [update]
Update: As Tom Warren points out, the TV app replaces Videos when users switch to the US App Store. It appears that so many readers tried to access the iOS 11 Files app that they switched stores and started seeing the TV app when they shouldn’t. This caused many errant reports about the TV app showing up around the world and we jumped the gun making the link to WWDC. Nevermind!
Ahead of Apple’s WWDC keynote later today, the TV app appears to be spreading to more countries. We have received reports from Apple users in the UK, Australia, New Zealand that they are finding their Videos app replaced with the TV app.
Up to now, the TV app has been exclusive to US users. It seems that part of the WWDC announcements will be an expansion of the TV app to other countries …
