Apple WWDC 2016 More to See
So far Apple WWDC 2016 has published many updates for Apple devices and software. In my opinion, in the future Apple devices and services could be improved in command center for more appealing devices. HomeKit could be updated by making more attractive connection with appliances. Apple WWDC 2016 shows that how well all these services work outside the Apple ecosystem. Also I think Apple company should focuses on Apple Pay and Siri in order to compete against some other famous figure in online shopping such as Amazon. The latter enterprise has already found partners for business cooperation in digital marketing. Finally, let me to make a guess: Apple Car may be come out for the following years Apple WWDC.
