iOS 9 “Proactive” to compete with Google Now



Rumors keep coming about the development of iOS 9, to be released in September . According to recent rumors, both Siri and search functions significantly improve iOS in September, allowing a fuller experience to compete in this regard with Google Now. It seems that from Cupertino are working on an initiative that has been called “Proactive”, which functions as improve Siri, Maps, Contacts, Calendar, Passbook and third party applications in Spotlight searches.

Apple “Proactive” work as a search function highly integrated into iOS and replace the Spotlight search menu. Proactive would access the same way we access now Spotlight. Apple would use acquisitions as Spotsetter to make a tool Proactive lifestyle.

Proactive is expected to include a dedicated search bar similar to Spotlight, so that the design will be familiar and emails continue to seek content, applications, music, etc. Moreover, what would be displayed below the search bar you would with a different user interface, providing results without separating content as far.

But this feature is not used only with Apple’s own applications. Proactive is expected to work with third party applications and learn which applications must show based on our everyday use. For example, if we look at the mail any more awake, we will show the mail around unlock iPhone morning.

The maps will also improve with the arrival of iOS 9. It is expected to add something about augmented reality, although it is unclear whether this new function will come with iOS 9 or take some more time. With augmented reality, a user could focus on a point on the street and see information on what we are seeing. If we focus on a bar, the maps show us the daily menu. On one street maps show us existing businesses. This feature have called it “Browse Around Me” (sail around me) and show all points of interest in the area where we are.


In addition to the arrival of Proactive and augmented reality maps, developers will have access to a limited API Siri called “Breadcrumbs” (breadcrumbs), which will allow Siri to access the contents of certain applications, but not will allow full access to Siri for privacy reasons.

The sources warn that the functions listed on this input could not come with iOS 9 but at a more advanced version, not the version iOS 9.0.
