Although this will not be the central wheel of the news, but a new smart keyboard that Apple seems to have created specifically for his most professional device .

The user only has to touch the button a certain number of times for Siri to appear . The patent states that "In some cases, the device will display an interface for the virtual assistant, so that it can perform search functions and detect voice commands.
