Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2012) got underway with a keynote speech from the US tech giant’s head Tim Cook.
The opening night of WWDC was packed with exciting announcements and revelations, with some new software and hardware getting everyone very excited.
We got a first look at the latest MacBook Pro, a sleek and incredibly lightweight device that is going to be the notebook to beat for the foreseeable future.
In terms of software, we got a look at not one but two new operating systems – iOS 6 and the latest Mountain Lion for Macs.
The latest Mountain Lion will be available as a download from the App Store, for around £20, from July. We’ll have to wait a little longer for iOS 6, but the mobile OS is set to be packed full of new features.
Available for iPhone and iPad (although not the first generation iPad), iOS 6 is due for release in autumn this year.
One of the most interesting features is sure to be an upgraded and improved Siri. So what do you need to know about the updated software?
Siri coming to the iPad
After being snubbed by Apple in the new iPad, it looks like Siri is finally making its way on to the popular tablet.
While not being available on the first-gen iPad, Siri will make an appearance on the new iPad and most likely the iPad 2 as well.
Siri gets cultured
There are all sorts of improvements coming to Siri, including a bit more culture as it was announced that Siri will know a lot more about restaurants and films.
Siri will be able to give you average meal prices for restaurants, as well as reviews and customer ratings. When searching for films, Siri will be able to give you average ratings and trailers.
Siri gets sporty
As well as getting more cultured, Siri is also getting a lot sportier. It has read up on all its sport, and will be able to give you much more in-depth answers.
Everything from previous results to upcoming matches can be asked, with Siri even knowing details of individual players and teams.
