Now we just need Siri to take our Instagram pics for us.

Don't you hate it when you have the hangover from hell and even the thought of tapping and typing on your phone to order takeout makes you nauseous?

With the new Apple iOS 10 update, Siri will now order pizza for you -- just ask her and you don't even need to touch your phone.

You'll need to download the new Domino's Zero Click app. From there you verbally direct Siri -- she's clever enough to place your 'favourite' order, or one from your four most recent.

In the midst of DIY and covered in paint? Ask Siri to refer to Pinterest for you so you can check if you're cutting in the skirting right. Just say "Hey Siri, find painting DIY Pins on Pinterest," and she'll launch into it for you.

Never get paint on your phone again.

An expert at sending messages, Siri now has access to WhatsApp. This means you can ask her to send a WhatsApp for you without typing or touching your phone.

Uber has also taken advantage of Siri this time round -- you can order your next ride just by speaking. Great for when you need to grab a cab while finishing off your hair.

Canva (the Australian design website and app that lets you create custom visuals) is on board with the update, too. The latest offering lets you share, view and comment on Canva designs without leaving iMessage. You can use Siri to search for images and designs -- just say "Search Canva for holiday images" and she'll get onto it.

Siri aside, the new iOS and watchOS 3 software offers a bunch of other cool new stuff. Fitness superstar Kayla Itsines has updated her app, Sweat With Kayla, specifically for the new watch -- you can now complete your entire workout from the watch with no need for your phone. Workouts are tracked using the Apple Watch Activity Ring.

The new watch also let's you share and compete with friends, or even your personal trainer. The new Breathe app encourages you to take time in the day to do short deep breathing sessions, offering a myriad of benefits. The Activity app experience is now optimised for wheelchair users, too. Wheelchair pushes now contribute to calorie goals and the 'time to stand' reminder has been changed to 'time to roll'. There is also dedicated wheelchair-specific workouts.

The new watch0S 3 is a major upgrade.

Zova, Aussie fitness app that won the Apple Design Award for 2016 has also had a refresh. It lets you track and evaluate all your daily activity, before guiding you through walks, runs and 10 minute workouts that are aimed at fitting into busy lives. You can use Siri to start a workout, run or stretch. With watchOS 3 you can view rep counting and' next up' exercise lists.

Love a GIF? Who doesn't! With JibJab you can create iMessage personalised GIFs directly within iMessage. Genius.

ETA, another Australian app, now let's you quickly share your ETA in any iMessage conversation. You can also ask Siri to 'take me here' and she will initiate directions. In watchOS 3, ETA includes a nifty 'travel thermometer' to get a prediction on future traffic conditions.

Streaks, also an Aussie invention and winner of the Apple Design Award for 2016 has new features, too. The 'to-do list that helps you form good habits', new function include support for the new Breathe app on Apple Watch; as well as helping wheelchair users track their distance rolled and number of pushes. It also offers a stickers pack.

Speaking of stickers, there's plenty new to iMessage. Similar to emojis, stickers are downloaded and used to visually communicate in iMessgae. With the new software update comes sticker packs from Qantas, Disney, Peppa Pig, Kimmy K's KIMOJI, Pokemon, Cookie Monster and Marvel.
