So far, all we heard about iOS 9 is that Apple’s upcoming major mobile software update will bring speed, stability and bug fixes to the existing huge list of features that Apple adding over the year. However, 9to5mac sources claim iOS 9 to bring visual improvements to Siri – Apple’s personal digital assistant.
According to the report, the interface of Siri on iOS 9 is expected to be similar to how it looks like on the Apple Watch. Siri on Apple Watch look way colorful and inviting than the iPhone. It’s very much likely that Apple will also add more powerful features to its personal digital assistant to keep up with the competition.
While Siri’s main competitors – Google Now and Microsoft’s Cortana – offers smarter features such as time and location based relevant information to the users, Siri is only capable of answering questions, set reminders and send text messages. Only after iOS 8, Apple introduced live dictation feature to its personal digital assistant, alongside support for additional languages and “Hey Siri” keyword.
Other than tweaked performance bug fixes and stability, just like every new major iOS release, iOS 9 will also come with a new colorful wallpaper.
