Apple to launch 10.5” iPad Pro and Siri speaker at WWDC

Yordan, 15 May 2017

Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference has been all about software updates lately but this June 5 some new devices are expected as well. According to analysts, the company will launch a Siri speaker in response to Amazon and Google along with a new 10.5” iPad Pro.

The 12.9" iPad Pro

The speaker is allegedly going to be an answer to the Amazon Echo and Google Home, and KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the device will have a touch panel. It is not clear if it will be a touchscreen display like the Amazon Echo Show or will have a touch-sensitive panel for buttons. It is also expected to cost more than its main competitors.

According to the same source, there’s more than 70% possibility that Apple will reveal a bigger 10.5” iPad Pro. It will have similar dimensions as the 9.7” iPad Pro, but the size of the display will expand thanks to smaller bezels.

As is tradition, the WWDC will also host the announcement of new iOS 11, macOS 10.13, tvOS 11 and watchOS 4. The event will be streamed live on Apple’s website.
