Those of you who couldn't catch the live stream of Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday can watch a replay at Apple's website.
On Monday, Apple executives spent more than two hours revealing the company's latest software and services, shining the spotlight on a host of new and updated offerings. WWDC is one of Apple's key events of the year. The company not only demos new products but shows how they all work together -- an important way of keeping users hooked into the whole Apple ecosystem. Starting at 10 a.m. PT, the live stream was available only to iOS and Mac OS X users. But the replay is online for anyone to catch via Apple's website.

Apple's mobile OS will also include a smarter and more proactive Siri voice assistant that will remind you of appointments and other events without you having to tell it and help you search for specific content, such as "those photos you took in Utah last August." A will aggregate various news sources into one easy-to-read interface.
Both OS X El Capitan and iOS 9 will be available to users in the fall.
The event also included updates to the Apple Watch OS. The newwill let watch wearers run native third-party apps without having to pair with an iPhone.

The Apple Watch will also offer , more data available at a glance and and Apple's HomeKit, together which allow you to turn on lights and control other home appliances through just the sound of your voice.
Perhaps Apple's biggest announcement of the day was its new music streaming service known as.
