One of the most intriguing features that Apple announced on Monday atis a major update for Siri. More specifically, a feature that combines notifications, learning and voice commands so Apple's personal assistant can do much more for you.
Shortcuts has the potential to fill the field for Siri with its rivals Google Assistant and Alexa, but you'll have to do some work.
There are a few different shortcut methods for Siri inthe next version of Apple's mobile operating system, which comes this fall. Siri automatically detects common tasks or uses your location and calendar to determine when you're late. In return, you will find notifications on your lock screen to order your usual cup of coffee or to send a text message to an organizer if you are late.
You can also create your own siri commands, either in a third-party application or in Siris Settings perform certain tasks without your intervention.
For example, Apple demonstrated the Kayak Travel App with a request to create a Siri link during the WWDC Keynote. The moderator could set a link named Travel Plans. Then she triggered Siri and said "travel plans" and Siri immediately started reciting her hotel address and check-in time.
The same keyboard shortcuts are available for actions such as sending an SMS or launching a playlist in the gym.
A special shortcuts app
There will be a special shortcuts app for iOS users in the fall. The app looks and works much likethat it purchased in early 2017.
With the Shortcuts app, you can create your own shortcuts to send text, podcast and get directions to your home.
On all Apple devices
While it seems the primary method of creating and setting up Siri Shortcuts will be an iPhone ($ 799.99 at Cricket Wireless) or iPad ($ 299.99 at Best Buy) You can use Siri voice shortcuts on any device where Siri is available.
This Means MacOS Computer, iOS Devices, The Apple Watch ($ 418.00 at Sam's Club) and HomePod (349.00 at Walmart) ,
