In Pictures: What the rumour mill expects from iOS...
Apple’s voice-powered personal assistant could get smarter in iOS 8. It could incorporate client-side voice processing (via software from Novauris Technologies, which Apple is believed to have bought in 2013) to use Siri without a network connection. Also in 2013, Apple bought Cue, a social search engine that creates personalized calendars from email and other user data. There’s also speculation, or hope, that Apple might release a Siri API for third party app developers, as Microsoft has done for its recently announced Cortana voice assistant.
