I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next.
Steve Jobs (CEO of Apple Inc.) once said this. I believe that the Apple employees are very well working on what CEO purposed for the bright future of the company. Apple released a new version iOS10 with a wide variety of its new features.
In iOS10, developers have more power to provide the useful information. They can now tell:
- The benefits of your application
- How to use your application
- It helps the system to promote your application in
- Lock Screen
- Siri Interaction
- Quick suggestions in keyboard
- Car Play
- Map kit
- Application Switcher
All the location information is now saved in “MapItem”. It is the object of “NSUserActivity” which saves the location information which can be used in the application according to the requirements.
One of the amazing feature of IOS 10 is that it helps a user to view album art and play media through the application with the locked screen using “MPPlayableContentManager” API’s.
This is not the end yet. Its other awesome features are:
Now you can introduce your application to the Siri and by using Sirikit you can make your personal app services available to Siri. Siri supports the following domain:
- Calling (Audio/Video)
- Vehicle enables or disable
- Book restaurant which requires more services of apple.
- Booking a ride
- You can also search app photo through Siri.
When a user requests the Siri for something the Siri sends an intent object to your app, now once you have the intent object you can use it to perform the specific response object. The response objects know how to react to the intent object that is sent by Siri into your application. Ride booking is also available in maps and Siri, you can also do reservation through maps.
