Siri in iOS 16 — 8 new things your iPhone can do now

Each version of iOS brings new capabilities to Siri, the digital assistant built into Apple’s iPhone. iOS 16 is no different, although the focus this time seems to be a little different from previous updates to Apple’s iPhone software.

Recent iOS updates included boasting from Apple about how much smarter Siri had gotten and how much more information the assistant could give you. However, the changes introduced in iOS 16 have a different flavor, with Siri turning inward. This time around, the digital assistant’s changes seemed focused on helping you use your iPhone more efficiently, whether it’s enabling shortcuts or improving dictation.
