Apple just acquired Workflow, a small company that develops an app that allows you to automate certain actions.
Using an iOS device, maybe you want to tap a single button to request an Uber at a predetermined location. Or perhaps you want to make a GIF from the last five pictures you snapped. These are just two simple examples of what Workflow can do.
Let's take a closer look, because this sort of acquisition may be a key indicator of the features Apple may eventually include in a future version of iOS. It may even be a small glimpse into Apple's plans for augmented reality, especially since quick execution of complicated tasks will be important if we're relying on AR glasses.
