HomePod is a seven-inch-tall speaker that has Apple's digital assistant built in. This is Apple's long-awaited competitor to Amazon's popular Echo speaker. The HomePod lets you use your voice to play music and control HomeKit devices like smart light bulbs or thermostats, as well as letting you chat with Siri.

HomePod costs $349 to start and will be available later this year. 

The iPad Pro is available in a New size

The New iPad will also include updated features and specs like a better display, smoother scrolling, a faster chip, the ability to multitask between apps, and the same camera that's in the iPhone 7. The New model will begin shipping on Monday.

The New iPad Pro will also blur the line between tablet and laptop further once Apple releases the next version of its iOS software in a few months. The update will bring Mac-like features to the iPad, including a New dock, the ability to drag and drop files between apps and a full-sized on-screen keyboard.

Apple made updates to its 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro laptops, including adding Intel’s latest 7th-generation Core processors, known as Kaby Lake, and adding faster graphics on the 15-inch model. 

The MacBook Air got its first update in more than 800 days at this year's WWDC, but it's a small one: the Air will now start with a 1.8 GHz processor rather than a 1.6 GHz processor.

Apple's 12-inch MacBook is getting a tweak in its specs and an upgraded keyboard.
