“Hey Siri, play some news”

iOS 11.2 users can now get their spoken daily news brief from a variety of sources, like NPR, BBC, Sky News or The Washington Post, just by asking Siri hands-free to get you some news. Doing so automatically launches an appropriate third-party news podcast in Apple’s Podcasts app.

Siri gets knowledgeable about tennis and golf

Siri has just learned two new skills and will now be able to give you basic information about tennis and golf.

Users of the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac can now query Siri about tennis, ahead of the Austrian Open starting up this weekend. Users can also ask Siri questions about golf, ahead of the Sony Open starting today in Hawaii.
