After giving Amazon a several year head start and rivals like Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) time to get in the game, Apple unveiled its Amazon Echo competitor. The company said it will ship it to more worldwide markets in 2018.

Apple also announced the launch of a new 10.5 inch iPad Pro, which has a retina display and weighs only 0.45kg. Apple is leaning into artificial intelligence with improved machine learning and on-device learning aimed at making Siri more predictive and proactive.

AMD has a new client and probably the biggest client till now.

The upgrade should come with a marginal increase in performance and battery life, however Apple didn't care to elaborate acknowledging the change is a small one, not to mention they didn't address other complaints about the latest MacBook Pros not getting enough RAM expansion or their lack of ports.

WWDC has now officially kicked off and Tim Cook started the event with an unusually short opening, instead of going through the usual numbers, he rushed off stage saying, "Apple's doing great" and as we found out during the gamut of announcements, it truly is. The SSD storage is up to 512GB and this one also has the new Force Touch Keypad.

Hamilton: Ferrari has chosen its number one

Apple has announced hardware upgrades across its entire Mac line, including spec boosts for the iMac, the MacBook and the MacBook Pro.

HomePod: An audio speaker to compete with Google's Home and Amazon's Echo, Apple's new device is powered by digital assistant Siri and can accomplish numerous things the others can do. The new GPU can fetch data at speeds of up to 400 Gbps, while being able to perform up to 11 teraflops, according to the company. Apple previously restricted most of its iMacs to integrated graphics.

For regular folks who don't need a computer that can handle artificial intelligence research, the iMac, MacBook and MacBook Pro have all been brought up to date with new Intel Kaby Lake processors.

On the Mac front, Apple showed off High Sierra, the next version of MacOS.

The iMac Pro starting configuration starts at a kingly sum of $4,999, but you get a hardy configuration that includes a 27-inch Retina 5K display, 8-core Intel Xeon processor, AMD Radeon Vega graphics, 32GB ECC memory and an 1TB SSD. It will have the same design as the current 27-inch model but with a new space grey finish. This year virtual reality is a factor; the new iMacs will also support graphics for VR content creation. "We reengineered the whole system and designed an entirely new thermal architecture to pack extraordinary performance into the elegant, quiet iMac enclosure our customers love - iMac Pro is a huge step forward and there's never been anything like it".
