Not all developers out there want your birth certificate and bathing schedule, but enough have proven themselves less than scrupulous over the years, so anything Apple and Google do to help users limit data collection and location tracking is always welcome. In fact, come September, iOS 11 will force app developers to provide the full range of location permissions, not just the on or off you get now.

Forget the HomePod or the latest version of iOS. The big news out of WWDC was related to something that Apple, and most consumers, don't really care about: Virtual Reality. In between Kaby Lake refreshes and Siri voice demos, Tim Cook announced a wide range of software and hardware changes that will finally bring VR to macOS, and that's pretty damn surprising because Tim Cook himself is on record as giving exactly zero damns about VR.

If you're curious about what the 10th Anniversary iPhone might look like this spring, then there might be some hints in the new iPad Pro. The most enduring iPhone rumours suggest that Apple is coming for the bezel, and the new iPad might just be a precursor to that massacre. Apple has killed the 9.7-inch iPad, but announced a new 10.5-inch iPad, that will have the same footprint with a lot less bezel.

It's game-time! Apple just announced its long-awaited take on a smart speaker, completing the smart speaker triumvirate along with Google and Amazon. The gadget itself isn't particularly remarkable, but it is an Apple gadget. That's a big deal for a lot of people.

Apple introduced iOS 10 this week during WWDC. While Apple suggested most people wait for the public beta when it is available in July, we decided to ignore that entirely and downloaded the developer preview. As you might expect, iOS 10 is currently full of glitches and lagginess, and some features just straight up don't work.

For Apple enthusiasts, there’s no bigger event than the Worldwide Developers conference. It’s the one week of the year the famously secretive company opens itself up to third party developers to ask questions, test new and unreleased features in the company’s products and read the tea leaves on the future directions of the iPhone, Mac and Apple Watch. I spoke to a few developers to gauge their reaction to the announcements of WWDC, and the mood was generally positive.
