Now, I can ask it in different ways. Will I need an umbrella today? -Yes, it's like to rain today. -and what about in New York City? -Yes, it's likely to rain in New York City, New York today. -So, you notice I can just talk to it very naturally, ask it similar questions in different ways. I can also send a text message. Text mom I'm running late. -Here's your message to Julia [unk]. -So, it knows who my mom is. -Do I need to serve it? -It knows who my mom is and then I'm running [unk] -Okay, I won't accept it. -What's the best sushi? -I found number of sushi restaurants. 18 of them are fairly close to you, I sorted them by reading. -So, it shows me all the best sushi restaurants nearby because it knows where I am and has actually sorted by the Yelp ratings and if I wanted to learn more I could just go ahead and tap one and will actually show me on the map where it's located. I can also create reminders with Siri. Remind me to buy flowers when I leave work. -Here's your reminder for when you leave work. -It's really handy to have this in your pocket.
