For this year, Apple is working on new augmented-reality features for iPhones and iPads, a tool for parents to monitor their kids' device usage, new Animojis, an improved version of Do Not Disturb, an updated stock tracking app, and deeper Siri integration, people familiar with the matter have told Bloomberg.

Assistant for iPad will work same as in iPhone.

Google's iOS app Google Assistant officially added native iPad support today, bringing the tablet's number of major Siri competitors up to three.

So, what's changed in the jump from iPhone to iPad? For instance, you can pull Google Assistant up as you work on something in another app or play a game. Like most updates or features Google pushes out, Assistant could be coming out in phases, so if you haven't gotten this feature yet, don't worry.


There's also rumors that Apple will unveil a new version of its affordable iPad. You can make quick voice calls, send text messages and email, set reminders, schedule your calendar and so on. More screen real estate simply means that you don't have to exit one app just to hop into Google Assistant.

Google Assistant for iOS is not the same as in Android due to API restrictions. Google Assistant for iPad is launching today, and it's available in a handful of different languages: English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil), and Spanish.

Google Assistant is available for free on the App Store.
