Apple’s Siri is now mature, coming out of beta with iOS 7


Apple’s Siri seems to be matured now with the final version iOS 7 arriving tomorrow. Siri was introduced with the iPhone 4S and since then, it has remained in a beta phase. Over the past few years, Apple has improved Siri steadily, adding functionality and increasing its accuracy in providing help to users.

As noted by 9to5Mac, the logo of the voice assistant has dropped the word “beta”. Besides, Apple has updated the dedicated page to its new mobile operating system, which now reads simply:

Siri. Your wish is its command.

Siri lets you use your voice to send messages, schedule meetings, place phone calls, and more. Ask Siri to do things just by talking the way you talk. Siri understands what you say, knows what you mean, and even talks back. Siri is so easy to use and does so much, you’ll keep finding more and more ways to use it.

Apple has also removed the FAQ page dedicated to Siri, which signs that the technology is now considered mature. “Siri is available on iPhone 4s or later, iPad with Retina display, iPad mini, and iPod touch (5th generation) and requires Internet access,” says the house of Cupertino. Hence, each one of these iDevices can now take the full advantage of voice assistant, which is no longer considered as a technology still in development.

In addition to iOS 7 features, Siri is a key novelty with a revamped user interface, even more minimal style, and the server is now faster to answer questions and has been integrated with Bing, Wikipedia and Twitter. Now the voice of Siri also sounds more natural, is able to better understand what the user asks for, with very low error rates.

The new iOS 7 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch – with Siri – will be available tomorrow, just two days before the debut of iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. The download will, as always, free for the Apple users.
