SIRI Shortcuts in iOS 12 - A Game Changer | Tech Talks

Image
Apple recently pushed out the final stable release of iOS 12 to all of the eligible devices in the Apple ecosystem. Apple labels iOS 12 as a performance-focused release, but there are still many interesting user-facing features present.

I have covered the best features of iOS 12 in a separate article. YOU CAN READ IT HERE FOR MORE DETAILS!
One of the most amazing features, IMHO, is the SIRI Shortcuts. Though many android fanboys and tech critics have criticised Apple of still not doing enough when launching SIRI shortcuts, I personally feel it is a very powerful and well thought out feature - something only Apple can do.


In this article, I will share my thoughts on why I believe SIRI shortcuts lays the foundation of an all-powerful SIRI assistant of the future.

Why does Apple iPhone XR exist? | Tech Talks

Image
Apple announced some new products on September 12th, 2018 at their special event. This included the new iPhones that many were awaiting eagerly.

Like every year, most of the details about the design and naming scheme, of the products to be launched, had already leaked before.

Also, the new 64 bit S4 SOC makes the watch future proof for years to come.
Even the iPhones had their fair share of surprises - some great, some disappointing!
The new and much more powerful A12 Bionic Chipset was the star of the show. Its sheer raw power looks to be a couple of years ahead of the competition already.
And then the updated camera sensors. It was great to see Apple get back to having a sensor with a 1.4-micron pixel…

Despite being almost a year old, Google Pixel 2 is still one of the best camera smartphones one can buy today. Its really amazing how Google Pixel 2 camera handily beats the likes of Samsung and iPhone, both having a dual camera setup, with just a single camera.

It just goes on to prove the awesome work Google has done with its machine learning algorithms that churn out DSLR like image quality from a small single camera sensor.

And with the Google Pixel 3 launch just around the corner, there is little to no doubt that Google will exceed the camera performance of the previous generation pixel device.
