Apple has a secret that it won't reveal for another month. But, psst! We've got the inside scoop that we're going to share with you right now.

Apple is going to unveil its next game-changing technology at its Worldwide Developer's Conference in June. This tech will impact almost every aspect of your life, from helping you get to work on time, keeping your home safe, playing music, to "seeing" your mood, and a lot more.

The tech giant's iPhone has dominated the smartphone market for a decade and its Apple Watch has dominated that tech segment since it came out in 2014. Now, Apple is going after Amazon's hugely successful voice-activated, in-home assistant Alexa, which operates on Echo, Dot and other devices. It will also compete with Google Home.

Bonus: Amazon Echo vs. Google Home: Which is better?

Apple's so-far unnamed assistant will use its virtual assistant, Siri, to let you talk to it from an Echo-type speaker. You will ask it to search for facts, get driving directions and get reminders to leave so you get to work on time (based on current traffic conditions). You can turn on your home alarm and a lot more.
