Siri will read you the news with iOS 11.2.2

Siri continues to become an increasingly useful tool for our iPhone and iPad. Thus, it is speculated that the new Siri in the next update of iOS will allow the virtual assistant of Apple to read the news through the native app Podcasts .

For this, we just have to ask and Siri will update us . This new feature has already been tested in the beta of iOS 11.2.5, which is a matter of days before it reaches the mobile software of the bitten apple. The idea is that the Podcasts from which the information is taken are the information references of each country. For example, in the United States it will be NPR by default, although we can always change and ask you to take them from Fox News, CNN, or The Washington Post.

Obviously, the source of the Podcasts will vary according to each country . Following the previous example, in the United Kingdom will take the news of Podcasts as reliable as those of the BBC, Sky News, or LBC. In Spain at the moment it is unknown which ones it will take, but surely we will find those of El Mundo, El PaĆ­s or La Vanguardia to keep us informed.

How can we activate the Siri news feature?

In this way, just as you can currently ask Siri to set the alarm or connect the Wi-Fi, now we just have to ask for the news of the day through Oye Siri and the personal assistant will provide us the headlines of the current Podcasts .

This function is tremendously useful in general, but the idea is to integrate it into the Smart HomePod speaker or CarPlay . However, any user can keep up to date with his iPad, iPhone or through AirPods. But the idea is to use it for those moments when you can not look at the screen of the iPhone or iPad, like when you drive or you're cooking at home.

And is that if you activate Siri using the Home button or the side button of the iPhone X , Siri will not read the news, but will offer them in text format.

At the moment this function has been tested in the United States and the United Kingdom, but when it comes integrated in a public update it will be expanded to other countries .
