This new feature likely takes that existing iOS 12 capability and provides it with the skill to automatically reject unfamiliar numbers/facetimes. There is an expectation that the feature does a little more to thwart spam calls, since Apple would be able to gather a statistical model of spoofed phone numbers.
This illustrates perfectly the sad state Siri is in. Now we have to program her with stupid sentences so that she can understand what you are doing. Instead of Apple making her actually more intelligent. If I ask Siri if there is an iPhone available in the nearest Apple Store she should know the answer without me having to deal with shortcuts beforehand.
I’m not saying Shortcuts doesn’t have its place, it’s useful for pro users wanting to execute complex workflows. But this right here is a joke.
I’m not a Evernote user anymore ever since they started charging for sync (never take away crucial features, as it will turn users against you)j. Still, all this news on the internet about the possible end of Evernote may well start an exodus of their remaining customers and seal the deal. The rumour mill is dangerous.
