Siri isn’t a feature to use daily, and it’s surely not for everyone. But Apple improved voice recognition and Siri’s capabilities a lot, and that’s helping a lot with handling simple tasks. ‘Hey Siri’ is definitely one of the features that improved accessibility, and it’s even a reason for some to do simple tasks with simple voice commands. Siri asks you to voice a few short sentences to use the feature, and iPhone gains to availability to catch those two simple words; “Hey” and “Siri.” Things are getting even more fun because it seems like Apple plans to minimize it as “Siri.”
You might have already gotten used to the current command, but Siri sounds much simpler and less weird to say in public. “Hey Siri” is universal, so it’s the same for every language. Further, “Hey Siri” is a weird usage in some languages, and Siri sounds just more universal.
Apple Plans To Drop ‘Hey Siri’ Voice Command
The rumor comes from trusted analyst Mark Gurman; he points out that the feature will be out with the upcoming iOS 17 update. That’s an entirely new version of iOS, and it’s expected to bring significant changes in some parts. The new version will be introduced in WWDC 2023, alongside many new products and software changes. The news is expected to be announced on Monday, so stay tuned.
As some of you already know, Siri is also available on other Apple products. Use or not, Siri is a vital piece of the Apple ecosystem, and the developers focus on doing everything similarly on all versions. So it’s worth noting that the new “Siri” voice command will also work on other platforms that support Siri. Considering Apple adds more to Siri in silence, the assistant could become a star again.
