Summary of “The 8 biggest announcements from Apple WWDC 2017”

Apple’s WWDC 2017 keynote just wrapped, where key executives Craig Federighi, Phil Schiller, and, of course, Tim Cook, took the stage to announce updates headed to iPhones, MacBooks, Apple TV, and more.
So let’s get the Siri speaker rumors out of the way: it turns out Apple wasn’t quite aiming its smart speaker to go against just Amazon Echo and Google Home, but also the Sonos home entertainment speakers.
Apple priced the HomePod at $349, with plans to ship it in December first to customers in the US, UK, and Australia.
During the keynote, Apple demoed this by showing off a VR game featuring Darth Vader, a lightsaber, and TIE fighter.
Handwritten text from an Apple Pencil will also be searchable from the Notes app.
Just as Lauren Goode predicted, Apple introduced a new ARKit to let developers build augmented reality apps for the iPhone.
There’s a new feature called ProMotion which reduces the Apple Pencil’s latency to 20 milliseconds.
An update for the Apple Watch is coming which introduces new faces that display different types of informations, such as Siri reminders or more visual ones that feature Toy Story characters a la Mickey Mouse.
