Hey Siri And Live Photos iOS Features - How They Are Useful For Travel

New iOS Features - Hey Siri And Live Photos
How They Are Useful For Travel

September was eventful for Apple. It has introduced a new version of iPhone 6,new iOS with some cool features, Apple Pencil, and iPad Pro. The two quite useful features are "Hey Siri" option and Live Photos.

How They Are Useful For Travel

"Hey Siri"
Hey Siri option lets you control your phone without touching it at all. Just by saying "Hey Siri" you would activate the virtual assistant. Then you can say various commands, such as set a reminder and many more, and you would be able to just speak and Siri will follow. This is very useful while traveling if you want to take notes, jot down your impressions, look up things on internet and all without having to take out your phone and talk into it. It is also useful on the road trip if you want to do similar functions without taking your hands off the wheel.
How to set up "Hey Siri":
Go To Settings > General > Siri. On the second line, Allow "Hey Siri," toggle the switch to on. Done

Sample questions you can ask Siri:
"Show me directions to"
"Read my latest email"
"Text Name ‘See you soon"
"Find pics from my trip to Aspen in 2014"
"Find a table for four tonight in Chicago"
"Shuffle my Road Trip playlist"
"When is sunset in Paris?"
"How’s the weather tomorrow?"
"Where am I?"

Travel photos come to live
Live Photos brings audio and motion to pictures taken with the device. It captures motion and audio 1.5 seconds before the picture is taken and 1.5 seconds after it, the feature starts recording before you even capture the event and its continuously buffered from the moment the camera app is launched. You can bring those moments to life anytime simply by pressing anywhere on the photo. To visualize it better, it is similar to the photo displays within the Harry Potter movies :)
This is great for taking travel photos as you don't always have a video camera to capture the moment and you will be able to see a bit more of the memory when reviewing your trip.

Turn Live Photos ON or OFF on iPhone Camera:
Open the Camera from either the iPhone lock screen or the Camera app
Tap the little bullseye looking circle icon near the top of the screen to toggle Live Photos ON or OFF. If it is yellow, the feature is on. If grey, it is off.
