When users download the update next week, they’ll be able try to check out new features like a Siri with improved natural language recognition (she also features a slightly different voice) and split-screen multitasking on the iPad.

Several native apps have also been refreshed, including the Newsstand app, which has been renamed to “News” and been given a new Flipboard-like design and interface.
