The update promise to make Siri even more useful and a better assistant. In fact, it could even take on the role to be a home doctor.\r\n\r\nBut, what is Siri, what it does and how it impacts our daily lives?\r\n\r\n \r\nApple's Siri Is Taking Over A Doctor's Job?\r\nApple has an impending plan to introduce a newer version of Siri that could carry out a proper conversation about health with its users.\r\n\r\nAccording to a report, the list of upgrades is speculated to release by fall 2021. The upgrades include the ability to have a back-and-forth conversation about health problems, built-in machine translation, and \u2018new hardware support\u2019 for a new device. Recently, Apple was also spotted on testing out codes for an augmented reality headset in iOS 13. The code name of the 2021 release is \u2018Yukon +1\u2019, some suggest that the company may be moving to a two-year release schedule.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\nWould You Rely on Siri's Answers Your Health Issues?\r\nUndoubtedly, many of us would have wonders and uncertainties about this new breakthrough. Though, we couldn't really justify its usability and accuracy yet without testing it properly. One thing for sure is you'll have years to contemplate about it.\r\n\r\nTo this point, we\u2019ve seen Apple really amplify on user's health and fitness. One of the bold moves is the additional feature on the Apple Watch concerning its fitness tracker. For example, Apple introduced an Electrocardiogram (ECG) tracker to help the user keep track of its heartbeat and rhythm. So far, this app has proven its functionality with successful notifications for users who experienced life-threatening symptoms. As of the reliability of future Siri's AI health diagnosis is still a mystery that is yet to find out.\r\n\r\nBut for now, here are some of the upcoming updates that you can look forward to in iOS 13 where Siri is concerned.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\nApple's Siri Is Getting a New Voice\r\nSay bye to those boring and stiff voices. With iOS 13, you can expect a more natural voice. The new update aims to bring an improvement in the intonation, tone, and rhythm of Siri\u2019s voice. Hence, it\u2019s quite likely that you\u2019ll be speaking to a less artificial digital assistant too. Besides, Siri is also getting a new Indian English voice that is available in either male or female.\r\n\r\n \r\nSiri Tag on iMessage\r\nThis voice assistant isn\u2019t perfect yet and Apple tech is aware of this. That means sending iMessages using this assistant could get frustrating because it's AI after all. And it tends to mangle the words than interpreting the way a human does. However, iOS 13 provides a remedy to this by adding a Siri tag feature on iMessage. The small tag is an indicator that you did not personally send that message but Siri did, thus the mistakes (if there\u2019s any).\r\n\r\n \r\nSiri Suggestions is Better and is Available in the Shortcuts App\r\nSiri is found in the \u201cSiri & Search\u201d in Settings in iOS 12. This time, you\u2019ll find Siri shortcuts in the Shortcuts app. Besides, Siri suggestions are getting better and smarter this time around too. There are new options for your favorite apps plus there are even embedded Siri Suggestions in apps.\r\n\r\n \r\nApple Siri Smart Features\r\n1. Smart typing and loudspeaker for calls\r\nThe iOS 13 will now give you the option to use Spotlight to type to this voice assistant. All you have to do is to swipe down on the home screen and type your question. Once done, you\u2019ll see a new \u201cAsk Siri\u201d option. Just click on it and it will launch and respond. When it comes to calling, Siri is upgraded to do more than just calling. Distinctively different from the previous version, when you ask Siri to place a call, it will automatically put the call on speaker unless you have your headphones plugged in. To activate this mode, your confirmations is needed before the call starts.\r\n\r\n \r\n2. Third-Party Commands Unlocked\r\nSiri can now tune you in to your favorite radio station. Instead of searching for the application, all you have to do is give Siri the command to tune you in. The best part, the SiriKit for Audio is now available for third-party apps. With this, you can integrate this AI assistant into Spotify and it'll play your desired tracks on Spotify.\r\n\r\n \r\n3. Updates for More Descriptive in Directions\r\nNavigation is even better now with this update. Now, you\u2019ll hear Siri be more descriptive as if it's physically present with you. With this, directions will be clearer and it will help you to stay focus on where you\u2019re going.\r\n\r\n \r\n4. Better Reminders\r\nMaking a reminder? Count on Siri in iOS 13 to give the suggestions. This Apple's AI will help make your reminders more efficient so you don\u2019t forget anything at all. You can also add multiple items to a list now.\r\n\r\nWhat do you think of these new updates that are coming in iOS 13?\u00a0 And is this health diagnosis something you'll look forward in the future iOS updates?
