A few weeks ago, Apple unveiled iOS 9: giving a preview of new iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch software that will be available this fall. In this upcoming release, iOS devices become more intelligent and proactive with powerful search and improved Siri features — all without compromising users’ privacy.
New multitasking features designed specifically for iPad allow you to work with two apps simultaneously, side-by-side, or with the new Picture-in-Picture feature, to keep watching a video while browsing the web, composing email, or using any other app. “iOS 9 is packed with more intelligence throughout, and delivers big updates to the apps customers use most — Maps supports public transit, a redesigned Notes app provides great new ways to capture ideas, and a beautiful News app delivers content that’s personalized to your interests,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “With our new iPad features, users can take advantage of the power of iPad, working in two apps at the same time with Split View, Slide Over, or Picture-in-Picture.”
Well this is music to my ears. Personally, my Siri needs a huge update in my opinion. Yesterday I asked Siri:
“Directions to Jersey Mike’s in Olathe”. She came back with directions somewhere in Connecticut. I mean, I was in Olathe, I’m located in Olathe (Kansas), and Siri gives me directions to a restaurant on the East Coast.
No thanks, I usually only take an hour for lunch!
So I got there on my own, enjoyed a Philly cheese steak sandwich, and didn’t even need to take the Long Island Expressway to get there 😉
Have any funny Siri experiences? I’m hoping that this update helps us get through the comedy. Sorry we repair screens and hardware on iPhones here at Mission Repair, but we can’t fix “Siri problems” – we will have to leave that to Apple themselves!
See ya, Ryan
