Apple updates Siri with new UI and adds support for more languages.
Another iconic experience it's getting a major update is Siri.
As much a series advanced over the years, the visual interface for interacting with it has remained largely unchanged.
When you use Siri, your iPhone switches to this full screen UI, obscuring your current context.
So this year, we've completely redesigned the Siri experience with a new compact design.
It makes tasks like launching apps incredibly seamless.
For example, if you say open Safari, Siri pops up at the bottom of the screen and instantly launches the app.
Or if you ask for information, like the weather results appear at the top of the screen, just like a notification Now this is especially great when there's information you want to reference on screen.
For example, you could ask Siri to add to your grocery list.
So that's the new Siri design in iOS 14.
But the UI is only part of the story.
To tell you more about how we're making Siri smarter than ever.
I'll hand it off to you l garden.
Siri's getting smarter and even more helpful every day and I really excited to share the latest updates with you.
Siri helps you in a ton of little ways every day, playing the morning news, ordering a coffee, getting directions, setting the alarm before going to bed and so much more.
In fact series helping so many of you with a staggering 25 billion requests each month.
And Siri is getting more helpful everyday.
Siri is always been great for getting information and now has over twenty times more facts than just three years ago.
For more complex questions like, how do hybrid cars work?
Or what causes seasons?
We recently introduced answers from websites across the internet enabling Siri to help you find even more answers.
Another way Siri helps us with communication, like sending messages.
This year you can now ask Siri to send an audio message and Siri will start recording.
This is great when you really want to have the emotion of your voice come through.
Another popular way to send messages with your voices using dictation.
Keyboard dictation uses the same speech recognition as Siri And leveraging the power of the neural engine we are now able to run dictation on device.
This provides great accuracy and privacy.
when communicating with someone in another language, Siri can help with translations.
We're expanding to support many new language pairs.
This is hugely popular, but we know our users want more than just translating phrases.
They want to have entire conversations.
And we believe conversations between languages should feel natural and easy and have the ability to stay private.
That's why we're introducing a new app called translate.
It is designed to be the best and easiest to use App for conversations, and it can work completely offline, keeping your conversations private.
using advanced on device machine learning and the powerful neural engine, you can translate your text and voice between any combination of these 11 language Which is so I could have a conversation with someone in Mandarin, and they could have a conversation with someone in Russian.
Just tap on the microphone and say, What are your store hours,
plus or lesser as this agenda,>> you get back the text and audio right away and just turn the phone to landscape to open conversation mode.
We've designed a side by side view that's easy for two people to know which side to follow in the conversation.
This mode is incredibly intuitive, with just a single microphone button because the app intelligently detects the The language spoken and shows translation on the correct side of the screen.
Translate will make communicating between languages easier than ever before connecting people in new ways.
And we can't wait for you to try it.
