Training My iPhone

I’ve often referred to Apple’s iOS as a learning operating system. When you look beneath the surface, you see Apple’s iOS starting to adapt to your habits and is constantly learning about your behavior. A simple example of this is if you go to a specific location every day at the same time, the iPhone will give you a notification saying how long it will take you to get there. For people who go to an office every day, you don’t need to tell it where your office is as the device simply recognizes your patterns. The Siri suggested apps similarly look for patterns of location or time of day where you use certain apps and give you quick access to apps you use regularly. These are two simple examples of how the iPhone, and underlying iOS, is learning about the habits and behaviors of its owner.
