Apple says iOS 11 will take advantage of machine learning
to a much higher degree than before. The the company has new, specific APIs that developers can use in apps such as the camera for face tracking, face detection, landmarks, text, and so on. Apple says apps like photos and Siri also rely on machine learning to generate a lot of their results. Developers will be able to take advantage of the new machine learning tools via the APIs starting this week. Smarter apps will arrive when iOS 11 does later this year.
