With iOS 10, Siri has become more useful than ever thanks to its large number of features and changes such as much improved voice search and more predictive features. Noticeably, Apple’s virtual helper is finally open to third-party developers, meaning that Siri now can work perfectly with and control many non-Apple apps. For example, you can send messages to your friends you are connected in LinkedIn, ask Siri for a ride in Uber or Lyft without ever needing to open the app, or send money to someone else using PayPal.
