Top apps in Apple Store are increasingly using Siri shortcuts to make everyday tasks easier for their users, the Cupertino-headquartered company said on Friday.

“Top apps are integrating Siri Shortcuts, making favourite apps even easier to use with a simple tap or by asking Siri,” Apple said in a statement.

Now available with iOS 12, shortcuts use powerful on-device intelligence to help users get things done faster, whether it’s commuting, being more productive, staying healthy, and more, the company added.

Shortcuts allow virtual assistant Siri to complete complex tasks with a single voice command – or sometimes without a voice command at all.

Weather reports from top apps like The Weather Channel, CARROT and Dark Sky are being delivered with simple voice requests like “radar,a “rain report” and “UV index.”

“Citymapper helps manage the morning commute with real-time departures, line status and disruption alerts, and whether you travel by bus, train, bikeshare or Uber, using Siri Shortcuts on the Transit app,” Apple added.

With a tap on the Lock screen or by asking Siri, users quickly gain access to apps like Evernote, which has created shortcuts to easily share notes, create audio and camera notes and print.

After rolling out iOS 13 for iPhones and watchOS 6 for Apple Watch Series, the iPhone maker is expected to unfold iOS 13.1 with CPU throttling feature to iPhone XR and iPhone XS.

Apple first admitted it throttled CPUs on older iPhones in 2017 and the iPhone maker was accused of artificially slowing down devices. To do away with this, the company also offered discounted battery replacements to users with some iPhone models, The Verge has reported.

Newer iPhone models have more advanced power-monitoring hardware, which will reduce the impact of throttling.

“iPhone 8 and later use a more advanced hardware and software design that provides a more accurate estimation of both power needs and the battery’s power capability to maximize overall system performance,” Apple wrote on its support page.

“As a result, the impacts of performance management may be less noticeable on iPhone 8 and later. Over time, the rechargeable batteries in all iPhone models will diminish in their capacity and peak performance and will eventually need to be replaced,” the company added.
