Apple’s Siri Can Now Access Third-Party Apps Info: What It Means

Siri’s language comprehension has been significantly improved.

Apple introduced ‘Apple Intelligence’, a smart system for iPhone, iPad, and Mac at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2024) on Monday. Using advanced technology, this new feature is built into the latest iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia.

One exciting part of Apple Intelligence is Siri’s new abilities. The virtual assistant can now retrieve information from various sources such as messages, emails, calendars, photos and third-party apps, allowing it to answer a wider range of queries and perform tasks. Users can also interact with Siri via text, improving accessibility and functionality of the AI-powered assistant.
