Perhaps the biggest addition to Siri updated by Apple is the ability to run shortcuts with Siri voice commands right after you install the app in question.

Siri‌-enabled shortcuts no longer require a setup process to use them. When you download and install an app, ‌Siri‌ can activate shortcuts instantly. 

Updated emoji emoticons in text

Siri will get some big emoji improvements in iOS 16 (and iPadOS 16 and macOS 13). Specifically, when sending a message using ‌Siri‌, you can ask ‌Siri‌ to insert an emoji into your message.

To make this feature possible, you'll need to be specific about the character you're requesting, and it's also helpful to say 'emoji' after each request so that ‌Siri‌ doesn't get confused. For example, you can say 'smiley face icon' or 'heart icon', then the desired icon will appear immediately.

In addition, iOS 16 version will be updated with more stickers that can be used for your contact images. There will be 17 new hairstyles with more hats, different nose symbols and more neutral lip colors for you to choose from.

For me, this is a feature I am extremely looking forward to because now interacting with friends and family through Siri will be more complete and convenient than ever. The new update makes it easier than ever for emojis to match your look and style.

Auto end call feature

When you wear a pair of AirPods, Siri can announce an incoming call and even offer to take the call for you. However, in iOS 15 and below, when the call has ended, you have to manually press end on your iPhone or iWatch.

Speaking of Siri, at the upcoming iOS 16 release, you can finally end a phone call or FaceTime call with Siri. If you're in a hands-free conversation with someone and the conversation ends, you can ask ‌Siri‌ to end the call.

If there's a downside to this new feature, it's that whoever is on the other end of the line will likely hear you tell Siri what to do. So this seems like a feature Siri only uses under certain circumstances.

Automatic message sending feature

In the Settings app, the ‌Siri‌ and Search sections have a new option to automatically send messages with ‌Siri‌, eliminating the confirmation step you have to perform when sending texts via ‌Siri‌.

Having to approve each message can be an annoyance if you're having a long chat with someone and you don't have access to your phone to type. In my opinion, this is definitely a feature worth looking forward to, perhaps having to practice 'working' with Siri right away ! 

Improved Siri discoverability 

If you want to know more about how you can take advantage of ‌Siri‌, just ask. When you're using an app or doing something on your iPhone, say 'Hey ‌Siri‌, what can I do here?' for details on ‌Siri‌ capabilities.

You can also ask ‌Siri‌ about a specific app with a command like 'Hey ‌Siri‌, what can I do with [insert app name]?', which is super handy for opening up your favorite social media sites. right?

Enhanced offline functionality

Siri‌ can do more on-device in ‌iOS 16‌ without having to contact Apple servers, which means more functionality is available when you don't have an internet connection.

Siri‌ can handle HomeKit, Intercom, and Voicemail requests while you're offline. But this function is only supported on models with A12 Bionic chipset or higher, which means you need to own iPhone models from iPhone XS version or higher.

Siri response time management is supported

In the Accessibility section of the Settings app under the 'Siri‌ heading, there are new options to change the pause time of ‌Siri‌, which makes the voice assistant wait for you to finish speaking for a longer period of time. ‌Siri‌ pause time can be set to default, ;longer, and longest.

There's also a 'Speaker Announcement' option for ‌Siri‌ to speak out loud, and a 'Priority Voice Reply' option that can be enabled to make ‌Siri‌ speak loudly in situations like the phone being turned off. language.

Improve spelling and add smart accents

In iOS 16 version, the spelling improvement is the function that is 'favored' by Apple with many improvements. When you're dictating text on an ‌iPhone‌ or iPad, you can tap a text field and type with your keyboard to make edits and insert QuickType suggestions without having to stop the dictation.

In the ‌iOS 16‌ Messages app, the Spelling icon is right in the message text box, making it much easier to access. If Dictation is on, you'll see a microphone icon that can be touched to initiate dictation settings.

Plus, while you're dictating text, your device intelligently adds punctuation, commas, periods, and question marks. Making it easier to swap between voice and touch, promising extremely good support for 'online chat' with friends.

How to stop calls on iOS 16 via Siri

Since iOS 16 operating system version, iPhone users can ask Siri virtual assistant to stop phone calls or FaceTime. This feature is very useful in case the user is busy with other things.

To turn on the call stop feature on iPhone via Siri, users go to "Settings" => "Accessibility" => "Siri", and then go to "Call Hang-up" to turn this feature on.

How to set Siri to wait longer on iOS 16

Siri virtual assistant on iOS 16 has been upgraded quite significantly. iPhone users can choose to wait longer when Siri receives the control sentence.

Users go to "Settings" => "Accessibility" => "Siri". Scroll down to the "Siri Pause Time" section, there will be 3 time options including default (Default), long (Longer), and maximum length (Longest) 

How to send iOS 16 messages via Siri instantly

Previously, if a user asked Siri to send a message on iPhone, this virtual assistant would need to ask for authentication again. When there is a long chat thread, this can be quite troublesome. So iOS 16 started letting users choose whether to authenticate sending messages or not.

Users need to go to "Settings" => "Siri & Search", and select "Automatically Send Messages" to enable the option to send messages without authentication. 

The above are the new updates of Siri on iOS 16 that I think will be extremely suitable for those of you who want a quick and convenient experience on Apple products.
