Apple announced that major changes are coming to Siri across the various hardware platforms that support the digital assistant in iOS 11. There’s a new voice for the digital assistant that’s meant to sound more natural, along with a more visual interface that shows suggestions and follow-ups to your original query.
Siri is also getting a new Translation feature in beta, for translating from English to Chinese, French, German, Italian, and Spanish, with more language combinations coming soon. Siri will also use "on-device learning" to be more predicative about what you want next, based on your existing use of the digital assistant. That learning gets synced across all your devices, but remains private to you, according to Apple.
Additionally, more open third-party support that will allow developers freedom to integrate their apps with the voice-controlled assistant. Developers will be able to do more things, including task management and more.
The updated version of Siri will roll out later this year in iOS 11.
