A Powerful Siri Is Coming To iOS 11
Siri is getting a massive makeover. Rumors coming all the way from Israel indicate that Apple's digital assistant will be more powerful as the upgraded version releases along with the upcoming iOS 11.
Apple has been mainly mum on the developments of its new operating system. Most of the news regarding the tech giant's OS is concerned with the updates to the iOS 10. This new development, however, is huge. According to the buzz, the upgraded Siri will now be able to perform more tasks across all of the company's devices particularly the iPhone, MacBook laptops, iMac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV.
Siri is said to have contextual learning abilities as well as deep integration courtesy of iMessage and iCloud. With iMessage, Siri will be a more able digital assistant. BGR described the new feature to be similar to how Google Assistant works with Google Allo, also a smart messaging app.
Earlier rumors say that the iOS 11 will allow group FaceTime, a group call feature similar to those of Google Hangouts and Skype. Mac Rumors also reported that the iOS 11 will also possibly come with updates specific to iPads. The previous Apple OS saw little improvement with regards to the company's tablet line. With Apple working on new tablets and features for such devices, expect them to be integrated with the upcoming operating system. The iOS 11 may provide improved Apple Pencil support for the iPad Pro.
A popular rumor and one that is highly requested by fans is a new design for the Apple OS. The current design has been around since 2013 and Apple fans are aching for something new like the much-rumored dark mode" design.
Another bit of rumor indicates that the iOS 11 will be introduced this June which coincides with Apple's Worldwide Development Conference or WWDC. The tech company's new iPhones are also rumored to be debuting at the much-awaited event. This may mean that the iPhone 8 will run on the iOS 11 and will be integrated with the much-improved Siri.
