Apple used its annual developer conference WWDC to unveil a host of updates, including limitations on how companies can track users of its Safari web browser, a measure that poses obstacles for third parties such as Facebook and Google as well as other analytics providers.

Also of note is that FaceTime is gaining support for group chats that'll support up to 32 participants at once. Members of the group can drop in and out of the conversation whenever they'd like. Users can swipe up on cards to close them.

You can create shortcuts for actions Siri could do, like finding your keys, ordering coffee, reserving tables, reminders. Kayak, the travelling app, could be linked by just recording "Travel Plans" as a command.
