Mobile Apple users might now ditch Siri as Google has recently rolled out Google Now for iPhone and iPad.
Google Now, which acts like a personal assistant, can provide users with information customised to their life without the hassle of searching for it.
By learning from the users' habits and routines, the service will provide timely information such as the weather of the desired locations when users start their day, breaking news and other news that appeal to them.
The service can also remind users of their appointments, show them the fastest routes (depending on the traffic conditions) to get to their desired destinations, and suggest nearby places of attractions, bars, or events.
Google Now for iPhone and iPad is part of the updated Google Search app. Users can still use the Google Search app to receive instant answers to questions.
