The next major update to Apple's OS X operating system, OS X 10.12, is expected to be previewed this June at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference. We don't know much about OS X 10.12, but given that OS X El Capitan 10.11 was a followup update to OS X Yosemite 10.10 with a focus on performance improvements and bug fixes, it stands to reason we will see some design tweaks and new features in 2016.
Rumors we've heard so far about OS X 10.12 suggest one of the headline features may be Siri integration. Siri has been available on iOS devices since 2011, but until now, Apple hasn't considered bringing the feature to the Mac, despite the fact that it's been talked about and desired by Mac users for several years.
Siri may be accessible using an icon in the OS X Menu bar, an app icon, or through a user-specified keyboard shortcut, specified using the System Preferences. A hands-free "Hey Siri" command to bring up voice searches will also be available when a Mac is connected to power.
Tim Cook does not read this board, therefore, he does not read your incessant posts. If you wish to contact him and tell him what you are thinking, write him a letter and send it to him or go to the next shareholder meeting. You'll find much more satisfaction there.
I don't think we can, either. Goldman d/g's Apple in time with Forbes d/g of a private company, Theranos, a company that offers health screening tests on finger poke sticks at very reasonable charges to doctors and their patients. Their headquarters is in Palo Alto, a stones throw (metaphorically speaking) from Cupertino. Personally, I've always had the thought that health screening tests from finger pokes would be an excellent fit for the Apple iOS platform and the hardware that operates from it. As it evolves, I can see the utility of stick slots in iPhones and iPads. The tech is already available and the design is probably in the works. Am I concerned about the d/g of Apple by Goldman and others? Well, yes. After all, I love my money. But I'm not concerned about it enough to rush to the door and abandon my investment. I am looking for not only big new things to come but for great things to come from Apple and I'm thinking that Apple autonomous electric vehicles probably isn't one of those great things. I'm looking for breakthroughs in collaborations in the realm of medical science and a blood test, skin test, urine test, saliva test taken at a remote location, diagnostic result achieved and data sent to a lab or hospital for evaluation from an iPhone or iPad is not just a pipe dream but soon to be reality. i'm not getting off this bus.
GOP is so frantic over this proven non-issue but the pubs will keep spending money to find anything, even if id doesn't exist. This will last through the next six months and then it will go away and the money to fund it will increase the national debt and of course, that will be laid on O'bama's administration.
The news is out. Everybody's going back to landline. Had enough of being on call 24/7.

Apple Inc. (AAPL) changed the planned date of its first-quarter earnings report Wednesday, pushing the report back a day. According to Wall Street Journal reporter Daisuke Wakabayashi (twitter), Apple moved its earnings date from Monday, April 25, to Tuesday, April 26, because many executives plan to attend memorial services for Bill Campbell, a former Apple board member and Intuit Inc. (INTU) CEO who died this week. Apple is expected to report the first year-over-year decline in iPhone sales since the smartphone was introduced in 2007.

It would not be good to get too excited over this push. I think these upgrades are more about end of month and end of quarter window dressing than about sincere optimism. It is going to be a slow rebound with usual volatility and plenty of time to buy at lower prices but those upgrades will eventually move AAPL to new highs.
