Cortana on iPhone

Microsoft has finally released its promised version of its Cortana digital assistant for owners of Apple's iPhone. The app, which will likely compete with Apple's own Siri assistant, has been in closed beta testing for some time after Microsoft announced its plans to expand Cortana beyond its Windows platforms earlier this year.

Here's what users can expect from Cortana on the iPhone, according to Microsoft:

  • Set and get location and time reminders across your PC and phone.
  • Track packages, flights, scores, stocks, and other important info across your PC and phone.
  • Use Cortana's Notebook to view, edit and manage your interests
  • Get information and answers to all kinds of questions. If you're looking for it, Cortana can help find it.
  • Have a little fun in your down time — ask anything, get jokes, and much more.
