On Apple’s website page which is dedicated to it, Siri is finally freed from the symbol stating that it was a beta version. Two years after its launch along with that of the iPhone 4S, the virtual voice recognition based assistant is finally ready to offer its users a level of service up to the standards claimed to be Apple’s.
We have been using Siri for 2 years now, if we have an iPhone 4S or iPhone 5, an iPad since the first Retina one. The service works exclusively in an online mode and is therefore dependent on the quality of the network. The range of possibilities, pretty tight at the beginning, is now much broader and Apple used the data of the users and their research, which necessarily passed through their servers, to improve service quality and refine the answers offered by Siri . With the release of iOS 7, Siri is gaining new features again (Apple has partnered with Wikipedia and Bing images). It offers also new voices, a little less robotic than the only one you had to do with till now. To find out what Siri can do for you, just ask it ! “Siri, what can you do for me?”.
Today Siri on iOS 7 is not a beta anymore and I am confident that is will get the support of a much wider audience thanks to enhanced intelligence, the CPU power of the new iPhone 5S and two years of work of the engineers in Cupertino who exploited queries. A reliable and fully functional and helpful Siri is a key to Apple’s success on mobile devices in the next few years as Google has launched Google Now, based on the same concept.
