  • Apple will make a big announcement tonight- here's what we think it will reveal

Reports in the USA also suggest Apple could introduce a tool to help users better manage their time on their devices as part of efforts to improve digital well-being. And if you're comfortable using beta software that isn't as stable as a final release, you can get it even earlier than most people. As it stands when it comes to updates on iOS devices, Apple either prompts users to install the latest update, or they give users the option to schedule it for an overnight install. This suite of tools also lets you view sales reports, access app analytics, invite users to test your apps with TestFlight, and much more.

In other announcements, there have been rumours of a new version of the company's iPhone SE being in development, which could also be unveiled at the conference, as could a rumoured cheaper version of the HomePod smart speaker.

A new Shortcuts app is featured to work together with Siri to perform certain instructions when calling out a voice command, it works similarly to IFTT, which you can for instance make a call to your wife, navigate home, and play music with a single command.
