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, theres 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 Apples website.
