Now Siri’s in all Places
Apple will be launching the Siri SDK, as rumored for many months. The SDK version will allow developers to incorporate Apple’s unique UI into their developed applications as and when required. This particular announcement has opened up various opportunities for app developers from all over the world. Other than a handful of apps like OpenTable and Yelp, most third party applications are not compatible with Siri in a perfect manner, which naturally decreases the level of efficiency of any new iPhone.

Android users where holding their breath for the launch of the new iMessage, but since that did not materialize, Apple incorporated this wonderful chat app on the new iOS 10.

But the app reaches perfection on the news iOS 10, as Apple launches the all new Apple News Rethink that allows for users to read complete news articles, as well as subscribe to any breaking news being published.
