Siri’s next stop could be iMessage, and it would be awesome

iOS Siri Commands In iMessage

Apple was the first company to integrate a voice-controlled virtual assistant into a smartphone’s operating system, although its main competitors such as Google, Amazon and Microsoft have since come up with similar solutions. Apple hasn’t stopped evolving Siri, however. In fact, a new discovery reveals that Apple is interested in bringing Siri to one of its best mobile products, iMessage, and further increasing the assistant’s capabilities.

Apple brings back the peach butt emoji

peach-emoji-ios10-beta Nobody can touch the peach butt emoji, not even Apple. A couple of weeks ago, Apple dropped the first iOS beta for iOS 10.2 with dozens of new and redesigned emojis. The world needs more emojis, I’m all for it. But Apple also accidentally redesigned the peach emoji and was a bit too literal — it didn’t quite look like a butt. Calm down, no need to grab the pitchforks.… Read More

Apple launches new Support app, saves your holiday tech-support nightmare

Apple Support App
"Hey, while you're here, would you just mind checking my iPhone? It's been doing this 'updating' thing recently. Oh, and my emails keep on not sending, could you take a look at that? And this wireless printer never does what I want it to." Yes, it's that time of the year again. Trading turkey for tech advice is a time-honored and always-awful ritual for anyone under the age of 30 who still has parents. This year, Apple has seen the oncoming tide of woe, realized it needs to curry favor with young people to keep iPhones hip, and has launched an app to help.

Apple just dropped a big clue about its first AR project

iPhone AR Apple Maps
Niantic’s Pokemon Go mobile game is the easiest augmented reality experience that you can try to understand what the whole AR fuss is about. You basically have a digital layer that’s projected on top of your surroundings, as seen through your phone’s camera. The digital information on the screen changes depending on where you are. And this type of technology has great potential, far beyond what a mobile game can offer. Apple is one of the companies that's expected to release various AR projects in the future. Tim Cook has often hinted that AR is going to be big for the company, even though the CEO never made any announcements. The first AR app coming out of Apple HQ may be a redesigned Apple Maps application that uses AR to display location information on top of the real-world.

Use this Pokemon Go catch chance calculator to see if you’ll catch that Pokemon

Pokemon Go Catch Chance Calculator
"Never give me the odds" might be one of the best quotes from The Empire Strikes Back, but it's not how most Pokemon Go players feel about catching rare and powerful Pokemon. In fact, not knowing the odds can be infuriating when a Venasaur or a Dragonite pops out of a Poke Ball for the tenth time, which is why Pokemon Go Hub has developed a calculator that will help players understand what their chances are when they attempt to catch any given Pokemon.

Here’s what you can do with the crazy new Portrait mode for the iPhone 7 Plus

iphone-7-portrait-mode2 Apple has just released iOS 10.1 with a Portrait mode for the iPhone 7 Plus. This feature takes advantage of the two lenses to generate background blur and make your photos look more like photos coming from a DSLR camera. While the feature is still in beta even after the release of iOS 10.1, it already works quite well. Our own Yashad Kulkarni (Romain is writing this) has been playing with… Read More
