Siri, speakers and software: Highlights from the Apple show

According to Axios, Apple will do away with the ability to directly sign into the two social media platforms from iOS in the forthcoming iOS 11.

Key upgrade coming in iOS 11 is the Augmented Reality (AR) experience. He added, "We have created a truly individualised experience with the smartest Activity and Workout apps, the Siri watch face that shows you the information you need when you need it, and we are seamlessly bringing users their favourite music right on the wrist". Messages will also work with macOS, and they have end-to-end encryption for better digital privacy and security. Or if someone texts you about owing money, it will ask if you want to pay using Apple Pay. You can also use it relay voice commands to smart appliances that use Apple's smart-home software, HomeKit (these include a range of smart bulbs, thermostats, and so on, but excludes Google-owned Nest's smart thermostat).

Over the past couple of years, machine learning technologies have become increasingly more accessible through various Web infrastructures, but today Apple made it clear it wanted to join the pack. It can do things Siri already does, like deliver weather, traffic, or sports updates.

There are 375 million devices using Siri across the world and for iOS 11 the digital assistant gets a much needed update. Siri was originally developed at SRI International as part of a DARPA-funded artificial intelligence project called CALO (Cognitive Assistant that Learns and Organizes) and spun out as a startup; Apple purchased it in 2010. Management described the feature as "on-device learning", which enables Siri to take what it learns on one particular device and then sync it across the user's other devices.
