Apple announcements 2016
Fall is approaching soon. That means Apple is expected to announce its next series of iPhones, which includes followups to the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X. And while we have no confirmation or knowledge of when the exact unveiling and release dates will occur (Apple did not reply for a request to comment), examining the dates that Apple picked over the past few years offers a rather consistent schedule to extrapolate some strong possibilities for the 2018 dates.For the last six years, Apple held its iPhone announcements on either a Tuesday or Wednesday, and usually no later than the second full week of September.

Tell Siri you lost your keys and Shortcuts should automatically communicate with your Tile locator to help you find your missing stuff. This is supposed to work on iOS devices, Apple Watch via Watch OS 5 and the HomePod smart speaker (something we look forward to testing out).
