In playing a bit of catch-up with its Android cousin, Cortana for iOS has been updated with a bright and poppy new design. Alongside the revamp, Microsoft has also made Cortana available on the UK App Store (via Neowin), letting even more Microsoft faithful on iPhone try it out.

The design revamp was actually announced back in December for both Android and iOS. It includes some bold new color options ranging from violet to blue, green, or grey. There's also now a new grid icon for accessing a batch of quick actions such as viewing your reminders or the weather. Here's a full look at what's new in this version:

  • A fresh new look with an improved user experience
  • Redesigned calling, texting, and reminders
  • More immersive full-page answers
  • Faster page transitions and improved app responsiveness

This all comes as part of a big update to version 2.0. If you want to check out all of what's new for yourself, you should be able to grab the latest version of the app from the App Store now.
