Apple‘s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is currently kicking off the introduction of its next-generation iOS 12 mobile operating system.The Cupertino company touts that the new operating system version is molded better with their A-core chips, providing better overall performance than its predecessor.

There’s also a dedicated app called ‘Shortcuts’ to add pre-made or customize your own Siri custom phrases for one’s multi-action tasks such as ordering your usual items or ringing your accessories when you can’t locate them.
