LIVE: This Is What's Being Announced Right Now at Apple's 2017 WWDC Event

A lot of new advancements and exciting upgrades are on the way.

By //Tech 

Apple‘s rumor mill has been working overtime for 2017’s World Wide Developers’ Conference predictions, and now’s the time to see what’s confirmed from this year’s San Jose event. Analysts have spread word about a possible Siri speaker to contend with Amazon’s Echo and Google Home, along with a redesigned iPad Pro and possibly even a preview of the new iPhone 8, but no concrete information has been made public of the above. As with all WWDCs of the past, expect Apple to speak extensively on its software upgrades and advancements to both iOS and Mac OS, along with possible news for TvOS, WatchOS and more.
