Siri coming to South Africa in iOS 10

Apple announced iOS 10 at it’s WWDC keynote on Monday. Apple highlights the major features of  iOS 10 but did reveal some other features on a word cloud screen when summing up iOS 10.

Upon closer inspection you will see Siri for South Africa in the lower right corner.

Along with a preview of iOS 8 Apple will preview OSX 10.10 at WWDC later today. OSX 10.10 is rumoured to be called Yosemite or El Cap based on banners on display at the Moscone Centre.

Apple’s desktop and mobile platforms have never looked more different. When iOS ditched textures for flat design in iOS 7, OS X took a few of those cues, but it didn’t go nearly far enough. System and app icons still look very textured, and the “layering” of windows over backgrounds — which looks great in places like Launchpad — could use more of a presence.

At the same time, the basic UI of Apple-grown apps such as iTunes, iPhoto and Aperture is long overdue for a refresh. Other music services, including Xbox Music and Google Play, have shown how well a strong visual UI can work, while Adobe Lightroom completely outclasses the experience in Apple’s photo apps. It’s time for some more spice in the iLife.

AirDrop

OSX and iOS both have Airdrop however these service don’t work with each other. Apple is rumoured to fix this issue in OSX.

Siri

OSX already has some sort of voice assistance but it is not Siri. OSX will most likely integrate Siri throughout the OS.

Apple To Preview iOS 8 at WWDC

Apple’s WWDC conference begins today and Apple will preview iOS 8 during the Keynote presentation. iOS 8 will be available for developers for beta testing immediately after the keynote and will become available to the general public in September.

Little information is known about iOS 8 but here is what we can expect:

Maps

Apple purchased a number of mapping companies last year and their technologies are expected to be included into Maps. How these improvements will improve maps in South Africa is yet to be seen.

Siri

Every year Apple improves Siri but this year developers are hoping to get an SDK for Siri that will allow them to integrate Siri into their Apps. Rumours also suggest that Siri could get proactive assistance, such as telling you the weather every day instead of waiting for you to ask.

HealthBook

The biggest announcement it expected to be the HealthBook App. Since the inclusion of the M7 chip in the iPhone 5s the iPhone has had the ability to track you motion more accurately. Many Apps now track all sorts of health related activities from running, sleeping to how you eat. The HealthBook app could capture steps taken, heart rate, hydration, nutrition, blood-sugar level and other factors. Each one of these would exist as a “card” within the app.

ll this is expected to be in preparation for the iWatch.
