Apple Inc's long-awaited launch of tap-to-pay technology in its new iPhones and smartwatch may be the seal of approval that near-field communication technology needs to become as common as WiFi, Bluetooth and Global Positioning System.

Apple unveiled its long-awaited HomePod at its annual developers conference taking place this week in the heart of Silicon Valley, enticing lovers of its products with a high-end offering in a market dominated by lower-priced devices from Amazon and Google. Its power extends beyond voice control too, with a boost to its machine learning smarts meaning it can make suggestions based on personal usage of Apple's core apps, including Safari, Mail and Messages. Siri can also be instructed to send an Apple Pay payment, which will be stored in the user's Apple Pay Cash account. The company is also adding a cheaper $1,300 MacBook Pro option.
Subscriptions and In-App Purchases can also be purchased directly from the App Store outside the app which will be helpful for large brands on the App Store who are big on the Freemium model. Apple says, "If you turned on Find My iPhone, enter your Apple ID and password after the restore to activate your device".

On the other hand, AirPlay 2 itself offers multi-room audio, which allows one to control the speakers using Home app, Siri, or Control Center. The upcoming iPhone 8 which is expected to come in the fall of this year would be running on a latest iOS 11.
