From game consoles to drones, these were the coolest gadgets of 2017

In a recent report, Apple plans to revamp the Apple Music app to put a greater focus on video with the release of the highly awaited iOS 11. Reports suggest that Apple Music could release as many as 10 original series by the end of this year and with iOS 11, its app will be updated to feature that content.

According to a source, the site recently posted an interview with Jimmy Iovine, Apple's music guru, who reportedly shared some of his aspirations for the streaming service. Iovine said, "A music service needs to be more than a bunch of songs and a few playlists." He added, "I am trying to help Apple Music can be an overall movement in popular culture, everything from unsigned bands into a video. We have a lot of plans."

Interestingly, Apple is preparing several forays into a video which includes a Carpool Karaoke series (recently delayed), Planet of the Apps, and several documentaries. Moreover, a report also hints that by this year, Apple Music will have more than 10 original series on music and its artists, some of which include documentaries on Bad Boy Records' founder Puff Daddy and also Cash Money Records.

Apple is set to announce a new version of its iOS operating system, iOS 11, at its WWDC event this coming June, with a launch date of late fall. There are no exact details or plans for the software update at this point yet, however, it's expected for iOS updates to add more improvements to its built-in suite of apps, and that would include Apple Music.

As for other iOS 11 features speculated to be on the horizon, reports suggest that Siri will see a huge overhaul and Apple fans will see a tighter integration with any number of other iOS apps and services such as Messages and iCloud. Furthermore, the upcoming iPhone 8 is reported to feature advanced 3D cameras.  It's also been rumored that iOS 11 will include new thrilling augmented reality features and more.
