Design for intelligence
June 22, 2020
Intelligence is a core part of building a great modern app. App extensions, Siri suggestions, voice, widgets, app clips — we’ve designed all of these features to help make everyday tasks easier for people who use our platforms. By implementing these APIs, your app can help people spend less time getting more done.
Learn about the origins of the intelligent system experience, and find out how integrating intelligently with the system can help make your app more convenient, relevant, and intuitive, making your features the focus.
Discover new opportunities
Learn how extensibility is key to surfacing the most important features of your app into new entry points of the operating system. And discover how — by breaking out of the constraints of a monolithic container — your app can see increased engagement through suggestions on the lock screen, in Calendar, and by enabling voice interactions.
Meet people where they are
Understand what motivates people to use your app — and how you can use system intelligence to help them and achieve your own goals as a developer. We'll take a look at a typical person's journey to better understand how an app can become a key part of their routine — and why some apps just don't stick. Learn how you can provide the right kind of value at the right time to help them in their everyday tasks, and how your app and the system can evolve alongside them.
Make friends with "The System"
The building blocks of the intelligent system are simple: Define, learn, execute. Discover how you can use intents to define your app's key features, create donations to help the system learn and make predictions about the future, and implement extensibility to ensure your app is ready to execute at just the right moment. Learn from teams at Apple about how their technologies use intents and donations in different ways, all for the same goal: to make the everyday easier.
