Bloomberg's Alex Webb writes Apple is "likely to unveil iPads" at WWDC, and so the iPad Pro seems the most likely candidate for a revamp.

Apple announced on the eve of its Worldwide Developers Conference that its global developer community has earned over $70 billion since the App Store launched in 2008. If all the reports are to be believed, Apple could be taking the wraps off the much-rumored Siri Speaker tonight. Apple might offer a demo during the conference, but it will start selling it by the end of the year. It will also launch a 12-inch MacBook with better and faster Intel chip and also a MacBook Air also with a better processor.

We don't anticipate hearing anything about AR glasses, AirPods 2.0, Apple cars or new iPhones. Generally speaking, Apple announces these in September or October, although the iPhone SE was announced in March 2016. It also has a cheaper version of iPad which costs $329.

Russian Federation protested that the United States retaliation violated global law and said it would ruin bilateral relations. As such, Macron's first meeting with Putin was firm, but diplomatic.

One thing we're not counting on though, is a new iPhone or three. Perhaps Apple will make some substantial changes to the home screen, which has evolved over the years but is still mostly an array of app icons. However, the June event is being considered important since a lot of announcements could be made with the possible release of the next flagship smartphones in the offing in September. The new leaked app could be a file-management app for iOS 11 users. It will come with a new UI, a new version of Apple Music, Apple Pencil integration, new camera features for iPhone powered by Augmented Reality.

Given the success of Samsung Pay and the recent launch of LG Pay, Apple might also bring improvements in Apple Pay.

For Apple users, you will need to watch the live event from the official company website. Reports from CNBC suggest that the corporation acquired Beddit which manufactures sleep tracking devices.
