Recode rounds up everything Apple announced at WWDC here:

Apple announced major improvements to watchOS and macOS, which promises better performance and expanded features. It also completely revamped its iMac line for content creators. It's more powerful, more efficient and just a bit more affordable. 

The biggest news is about iOS. Apple is doubling down on machine learning and augmented reality. Siri will be smarter and more helpful than ever. More importantly, it's making machine learning easier for developers and is starting what it's calling the "largest AR platform in the world."

The iPad is also getting new features to make it more productive and useful than ever.

And finally, there's HomePod—which Apple wants to "reinvent music in our homes."

Apple fans think the announcements made at WWDC prove Apple is still leading the industry. The biggest thing is the fact that Apple is democratizing augmented reality and machine learning for its entire user base. It's handing developers extremely advanced tools to create for a huge audience.

Others think Apple is stuck trying to play catch up. The AR capabilities were essentially what Microsoft announced in 2015. The MacBook and iMac upgrades mean the computers are just standard now, instead of being massively underpowered and overpriced. All of the new iPad features basically turns it into a Microsoft Surface. They literally announced a file management system, something that's so basic only Apple can pretend it's an innovation.
