  • Apple to introduce iPhone-to-iPhone Augmented Reality Sharing on Monday

The technology giant is holding its annual Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in San Jose, California, where new features created to improve performance and reliability in its iOS operating system will reportedly be announced.

There could be a new iPad Pro with Face ID, and the AirPower wireless charger is long overdue now.

Apple's got a new iOS 11.4.1 update in beta, but the update probably won't be much more than a collection of bug fixes and patches.

Tonight at 10.30pm India time (10.00am in San Francisco), Apple will kick off its annual developer conference WWDC. The company saves a few surprises for its September press event, when it also announces new iPhones.

Elsewhere, while a new Apple Watch model is unlikely, popular suggestions for what Apple might unveil for WatchOS 5 include the addition of Spotify, new fitness features and a native Podcasts app. Apple will livestream the press event on this site, so you can watch it on the phone you're totally not addicted to.

Brigitte Nielsen Pregnant at 54 - See Her Baby Bump!
Beverly Hills Cop II star Brigitte Nielsen has shared the news that she is expecting her fifth child at the age of 54 . Her profile skyrocketed when she Wednesday Stallone in 1985 and then went on to appear with him in Rocky IV and Cobra .

A new rumor is out just ahead of next weeks Worldwide Developer Conference keynote presentation: ARKit is going to add the ability to let two people see the same virtual scene at the same time. Software updates focused on Digital Health, AR, and integration of macOS with iOS are probable; however, major new software features like a redesigned Home Screen, AI for Photos, and file management for iPad have purportedly been postponed as Apple works to improve the reliability of iOS and macOS. The app selection on the product remains limited, but it's important for Apple to keep working on new features for a device that's the centerpiece of its living-room strategy so far. The company has said it wants to help users develop healthier relationships with its flagship product.

Apple's new wireless charging mat AirPower, which was first announced alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone X previous year and has been slated for release in 2018, could also make an appearance.

Apple's Siri voice assistant avoids a lot of the splashy headlines about privacy issues that Amazon's Alexa and the Google Assistant seem to generate.

Despite WWDC's focus on software, some hardware were introduced at the event before.

However, if there are any new round watchfaces in the developer kit, we might get a glimpse of a future round Apple Watch.
