Developers have wanted the chance to interact with Siri since it was first announced, but until iOS 12, it was limited to a small group of developers. In iOS 12, the power of Shortcuts allows you to much more fluidly interact with Siri, and have your application work with powerful system-level Shortcuts.
You’ll learn about the award-winning indie app that became Shortcuts, the easy and hard (and maybe even Galaxy Brain) ways of working with Shortcuts, and a few limitations of Shortcuts that will leave you itching for iOS 13.
