    Can someone explain to me more, this really intrigued me.

    So, iOS will be able to tell when you are in your car? How will that work?

    Also, it seemed to be suggested that it can tell when you are running. So it brings up music when you plug in headphones. But its said it will be tailored to the time and place. What exactly does that mean?

    It also seemed like it was implied that iOS would know it was morning, and would suggest meditation. And that it would bring up suggestions for breakfast places in the morning. And most likely then, dinner suggestions at night.

    Can anyone else expand on any of this?

    So the phone will know when you get in the car and when its morning and night and make suggestions?

    I hope they have done some more improvements to the Reminders app: namely, letting us SORT reminders by date modified (like Notes already does). I use Reminders all the time but having to rearrange each item manually is killing me.

    To answer your question about getting in the car, I'm guessing they are talking about CarPlay-enabled vehicles. So, like 1% of us will get to use that feature for now...

    My guess is it works with CarPlay and that's how it knows.

    Exactly what it seems like. It uses your time and location combined with what music you've played in the past around that same time and place and suggests music based on that. Basically they're taking a bunch of different data points that are already being collected (your phone knows the time, your location, what apps you use and when, what music you listen to, what you search for, who you communicate with, etc.) and doing something useful with them.
