Siri Updates
Siri is another addition to macOS Sierra. Apple's personal digital assistant will live in the menu bar to help answer questions and perform tasks.
You'll be able to ask Siri to search images and information, which you can drag into a desktop window. For example, you can drag an image straight from the web into a Pages document you're working on.
Siri can also be used to search files on your device. You can opt to save search results, like sports schedules and Twitter feeds, by pinning them into the Notification Center for easy access.
The assistant can also be used for messaging and booking events. Ask Siri to send a message to your colleague or look up nearby restaurants with open reservations.
Apple announced it's opening up Siri to developers so it can be integrated with third-party apps. For example, if you want to send a WeChat message, you can tell Siri to 'send a WeChat message' to launch the app interface.
