New automated features like routing around the traffic and recognizing people at the events are creating a photo album, which is turning the iPhone into a well-versed and smarter accessory of your life. Chatbots are helping in completing your daily tasks like it allows anything user on Facebook. In short span of time, it has become an exceptional assistant that helps in managing your conference dates and scheduling meetings. A new update for your iPhone includes new automation in order to make lives easier and reduces stress. At a developer conference, which held in California, Apple announced iOS10, which was focused on how to make your phone “think differently”. Let’s take a look at a few potential updates that impressed a lot and have a lot of things to offer:
- Improved Maps to suggest better route details
The Apple Maps app in iOS 10 will help you know the recent traffic problems. With the emergence of the Waze app, which is now owned by Google, Apple has launched its Maps app in iOS 10. This will help you in figuring the exact routes and will let you know about the traffic problems automatically. The app also suggests which routes you should typically prefer. By using Calendar feature, user can get the route suggestions.
- Automated text responses
If you are chatting with someone, a new feature “Quick Type” in the iPhone’s Messages app will suggest more than just the auto spelling correct. It has a lot many features like if someone asks question about your current location “Where are you?” the iPhone app will automatically show your current location in the map. And if someone asks you availability to fix a meeting, it will suggest the time by checking your calendar.
- Facial recognition feature for photos
The Photos app can now successfully recognize the people in photos and will offer you to group together. Apple launched this feature on the Mac desktop for some time, but the amazing thing about having it on the iPhone is that the processing is all local to the phone. And that means it is comparatively more secure as photos now don’t need to be processed in other technologies including cloud technology.
- Your voicemails could be transcribed
Even though it’s now available on Google’s Voice app for many years, the iPhone has the feature to transcribe your voicemails successfully and automatically. And it could successfully turn them into text format. In turn, this saves a lot of time because as you can now scan easily through the already written text comparatively faster than you could listen to messages.
- Now your Smartphone knows when you could lift it up
Now you don’t need to press a button to increase the shine of your screen. Your phone’s accelerometer knows when you are raising your phone to look at it. And once you raise your phone and look at a glance to check the notifications screen’s light will increase and when you’ll keep the phone down the screen light will again become dim.
- Siri can now order a Food from your Favorite restaurant
The voice assistant available on the iPhone and iPad, which we know as Siri has become smarter. Now Apple is allowing the Siri to work with available third-party apps. So that means, now you could ask Siri to order your favorite food or cab from Uber.
- Automated videos of events
Apple is advertising its new feature called Memories. And this new feature will grab all the video snippets and photos, by properly identifying the known places and people at a conference or event. It will then combine them altogether and will come with a highlight video, which will have all the key highlights of wedding or birthday party. And this feature will let you twist all the settings in order to make the video shorter or longer. And it will emphasize the action and crucial moments, both.
- News app will automatically group all the key stories
Apple launched another new automation in its News app. The new revamped News app will create sections for news stories while on the fly and could group them by quickly scanning and show only the new and latest business stories.
