The latest iOS 10 update also extends the functionality of Siri, allowing it to access payment apps for paying bills and booking rides. The more interesting part is that you can even ask the digital assistant for live score updates.
Apart from this, Apple Releases iOS 10.3 with an interesting update. The virtual digital assistant will also be able to interact with automakers’ apps to analyze your car’s fuel level and lock status as well as activate the horn and operate the lights.
