Apple is gearing up to release iOS 10 very soon, and that will include tons of new updates that will definitely make iPhones worth the price. The new OS will include gender-inclusive emoji, with 100 spanking-new and redesigned icons, as well as female athletes and professionals.
iOS will also include amazing updates for Siri, Apple's touch-activated voice system. For the first time, Siri will connect sexual assault victims to resources such as the National Sexual Assault Hotline. The update will also include some much-needed advancements that will make life easier for Apple users.
Siri will now allow all users to tap into specific apps, like Skype, Square Cash, and Pinterest without ever opening them. By saying "Hey Siri," iPhone owners will be able to make video calls on Skype, pay their rent via Square Cash or Monzo, and save photos from Pinterest. Siri will even be able to hail Uber and Lyft for those who need a ride.
Our go-to personal assistant is getting a whole lot cooler with these nine amazing updates.
