Give even more detailed sports and weather info
Siri’s always been able to retrieve basic sports and weather info, but now she’s armed with baked-in, savant-level intel. Beyond the basics like major league scores and schedules, she’ll also give you the scoop on a team’s season history and where you can catch a particular game on TV. As for weather, you’ll get detailed hour-by-hour outlooks when you hit her up for the forecast.
Give you personalized recommendations
The new Siri really takes the time to get to know you. In fact, she can sort of predict what you're going to do next -- like who you might call or text, or what apps you want to use. Swipe right from the home screen to see Siri’s suggestions based on your previous behaviors at certain locations and times.
Control your entire home on command
You can sync all of your Apple-compatible smart home products to work in tandem with one another when you give Siri a specific command. So, for example, when you tell Siri "Movie night," you can have your lights dimmed, blinds drawn, and Apple TV enabled simultaneously. Or have the locks engaged, thermostat turned down, and lights turned off when you tell Siri it’s bedtime.
Oh Siri, you just get me.

Joe McGauley is a senior writer for Thrillist and is pretty sure Siri has plenty of material to blackmail him.
