Apple will make some changes to Siri’s policies on iPhone and iPad. Now the third-party applications that you use most often will become a priority over the standard ones: for example, Skype will replace the Phone if you make most calls through it.
Now, when you ask Siri to call or send a message to a friend, the system will open Phone or iMessage by default, even if you prefer Skype and WhatsApp. “Later this year,” an update will be released for iOS and iPadOS, after which Siri will open those programs that you use more often. A related innovation must be supported by third-party applications.
“Apple offers our users an excellent use experience that is only possible through the collaboration of software and hardware. Starting with the very first iPhone, we have created applications that can provide customers with an exceptional experience for making phone calls, playing music, browsing the web, and more. With each generation of iPhone, we are expanding the capabilities of embedded applications designed to provide maximum performance, long battery life, seamless integration with other software and devices, and the best security and privacy.
We also created the App Store, the safest place to download applications, in which our customers can choose from millions of other programs, finding the best for their iPhone. In several categories, where Apple also has applications, we have many successful competitors, and we are proud that their success has led to the creation of nearly 2 million jobs in the US in the thriving multi-billion dollar developer market. “We have always created the best products for our customers, so the iPhone has the highest customer satisfaction in the industry.”
The company also noted that the recently appeared feature of the App Store with recommendations of the best applications promotes Apple’s own software only in 1% of cases.
