It is rumored that this year, most probably some time around June during WWDC Apple will officially announce iOS 5 and upcoming Mac OS X Lion. So what innovation will iOS 5 bring to the market? Well, there are some rumors that iOS 5 might have a powerful voice control. What does this mean? It means that the new iOS 5 could be capable of recognizing commands in English that we use every day. Things like being able to ask your iPhone what’s new tonight in your city, and this could result in an internet search of the latest events or concerts and so on.
Another example can be if you just ask your phone where is the nearest coffee shop and this also will lead to a map with directions to your desired destination. Similar to the rumored voice controls is Google’s Voice Search with Voice Actions which is already present on Android devices, and offers similar functions to the rumored iOS 5 voice control.
Maybe some of you might have heard about an app that’s called Siri, this is the app that the iPhone and the iPad base their “Smart” voice control on, and Apple just bought the rights for this app last year so there might be plans to modify it and then incorporate it in the gadgets that Apple will launch soon.
