Siri is getting tweaked for iWatch use says rumor
Rumors are continuing to swirl that Appeal is working on a smartwatch that has been called the iWatch so far. Another rumor having to do with that watch surfaced today that also has to do with Siri. Apple is working on advanced features for its Siri voice assistant according to firstpost.
Those features are being developed with the smartwatch in mind account to the source. Apple is also tipped to be working to bring more third party apps and services to Siri. Along with the third party apps, the rumor claims that Apple is working to improve the search capability of Siri to help it function on smaller screen devices.
In the end, Apple is looking for Siri to be able to do all sorts of things for the user. Those things include functions like booking a rent car, making hotel reservations, and other stuff. Those are all things that Siri is unable to do right now.
Apple is also trying to get Siri to be able to launch specific apps when certain actions happen. For instance if the user starts running, a fitness app would launch automatically. These features would make a lot of sense with a small screen watch and would go a long way to making the watch more usable for the things people normally use a tablet or smartphone for. There is still no word on when the iWatch might come to market. Rumors suggest that a version with health monitoring capability is supposedly in the works along with a more basic version.
