The company has aimed to achieve the proactive assistance touted by Google. As Apple prepares to face a new rival in the form of Samsung's upcoming Bixby, the company looks to be readying another Siri upgrade to ensure the assistant remains relevant to users.In iOS 11, Apple will expand Siri's proactive features to allow it to learn from users, The Verifier reports. Siri will be able to study the user's habits and regular patterns, changing the functions offered in response to the activity of the device owner. Everything will be uploaded to Apple's iCloud and synced across devices, preserving context across conversations. You could start an exchange on your iPhone and then resume it on your Mac computer.
