Apple CEO Tim Cook is expected to present a first look at iOS11 and macOS 10.13 when he takes center stage as the keynote speaker at the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose.
Cook’s speech is expected to begin at 1:00 P.M. ET this afternoon.
The annual conference typically previews software enhancements, but this year Apple is rumored to be announcing some brand new devices. Tom’s Guide reported that Cook could introduce a new speaker that’s powered by Siri similar to Amazon’s Alexa.
Apple uses the WWDC to provide an inside glimpse at company changes and developments in operating systems.
The big story out of last year’s WWDC event was an upgrade to Apple Music, and it’s expected that this year will include updates to tvOS as Apple tries to grow the video segment of its company. That includes rumored virtual reality capabilities on iPhone 8.
In January, Cook announced his goal to double Apple’s services revenue by 2020. Those services include the App Store, iTunes, Apple Music, Apple Pay and iCloud. Those combined revenues hit $7.17 billion in its first quarter earnings that were reported in December 2016.
Cook’s bold ambition isn’t as crazy as it might seem. The service side of the business has a reported growth of 18% year-over-year in that same quarter and new updates and developments could push that further upward.
Can this new Siri speaker help Cook and Co. accomplish that goal? Stay tuned.
