APPLE'S Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) is over, with the firm using its two-and-a-half hour keynote to showcase what's in store for iOS, OS X, Watch OS and more.
We've rounded up everything you need to know from WWDC below.
Apple's next iOS release is all about refining user experience and performance, much like Google's newly-announced Android M release.
Siri was at the forefront of Apple's WWDC keynote, with iOS 9 set to bring with it a more "Proactive" version of the virtual assistant. This means Siri will be able to offer more context-based intelligence and will be able to respond to natural queries. It also comes further integrated into Search, which has added support for third-party apps.
A new Maps app with transit directions will debut in iOS 9, alongside an updated Notes app and a new offering called 'Move to iOS' that takes the pain out of switching from Android. Newsstand will be replaced by a new Flipboard-style service called News, and Passbook will be replaced by Apple Wallet in iOS 9.
iPad users can also look forward to improve multitasking, with Apple introducing a split-screen mode.
In terms of performance, Apple has added a new battery saving feature called "Low Power Mode," and has reduced the amount of space needed in order to update the newest version of iOS.
OS X El Capitan
Apple's new OS X release isn't a major one, with El Capitan instead bringing with it a 40 percent improvement in the performance department and a number of usability tweaks.
Chief among these is improved multitasking, similar to that found in iOS 9. A Windows 8-style Split View mode will debut in El Capitan, the ability to drag an app to the top of the screen to create a new desktop.
Other new features in OS X El Capitan include a new Pinned Tabs feature in Safari, improved Search and an updated notes app.
Apple unveiled Watch OS 2.0 during its WWDC keynote, the first major software update for its debut smartphone.
The good news for developers is that Watch OS 2.0 brings with it support for native apps. This means that apps can become more feature-rich, and will no need to rely on an nearby iPhone in order to function - instead connecting to WiFi directly.
The Watch OS update will also bring with it a new Time Machine mode for improved navigation, an Activation Lock feature and a number of new watchfaces.
Apple's long-rumoured Spotify competitor made its debut during WWDC on Monday, ahead of its release on 30 June.
Unlike its main rival, Apple Music offers a 24/7 radio station called Beats 1, alongside a feature called 'Connect' that allows artists to share content - such as videos, pictures and lyrics - with fans. Of course, it will also offer access to iTunes' 30 million tracks, and will offer personalised curated playlists.
Apple Music will offer users a three month free trial, after which it costs £9.99 per month.
Perhaps the biggest and most-unexpected announcement during Apple's WWDC keynote was that its Swift programming language is going open source, with support for iOS, OS X and Linux.
Swift 2 was also shown off, which brings with it a bunch of new features for Apple developers, including error handling, protocol extensions, Apple's Xcode integrated development environment and new optimization technology. µ
