Apple (AAPL) - Get Report announced a dizzying array of updates across its family of software products. 

What's in store for Apple devices this year and beyond? Here were some of the highlights from Apple's WWDC keynote 2019.

Firstly, a long-awaited new Mac Pro is here. While WWDC is developer focused, Apple sometimes includes hardware announcements, and the new Mac Pro was a big one for Mac power users. The new Mac Pro has a variety of impressive specs and is more modular and customizable than prior versions, designed to please anyone who uses a Mac Pro for video, audio and photo editing or other content creation. 

The iPad's OS is getting a big upgrade, and one that will make it possible to use that tablet as more than just a standalone tablet. That includes better multitasting, app switching, split screen view, improved file management and a newly built Safari that's as powerful as the one you use on Mac. 

iOS 13 is getting a big face lift as well that includes Dark Mode -- a long desired feature -- a slew of new privacy-focused features, a redesigned Apple Maps and more. 

Apple Watch is ready to strike out on its own. Watch OS 6 makes it possible to download apps directly to your watch, without need for an iOS companion app. The upgrade also adds several new standalone watch apps, and a number of new health features such as a menstrual cycle tracker, a way to test hearing, and improved activity tracking and reminders.
