Apple did not forget about Siri in the latest iOS 17 update!
WWDC 2023 has given everything to be an event that we will be talking about for months to come, thanks to software updates and for years thanks to hardware innovations. Although the novelties in the first category, with the exception of watchOS 10, were rather subtle, Apple has proposed a change that would change the way we invoke Siri.
Starting with iOS 17, whose beta version is already available to developers, the famous Apple assistant interacts with the so-called “Siri” as an alternative to the world famous “Hey Siri”, to which we have been accustomed for years.
No need to say hello to Siri anymore
However, according to his publication, Apple is not going to make us break with our habits so easily. Although this change is enabled by default, we will also have the option to disable it. According to the list provided in the net version of iOS 17, we can do it by following these steps:
- Open the Settings app.
- Find the “Siri & Search” menu.
- Tap Listen and select your preferred option: “Siri, Hey Siri,” “Siri,” or turn it off.
Of course, for now, the ability to activate Siri with a word phrase is just that Available in Australia, Canada, Great Britain and the United States.
last Change to Siri in iOS 17 is the ability to Submit consecutive requests without having to activate thembut these are applications that we will get to know as Apple progresses in adjusting these features, until the official launch of the operating system this fall.
Although in recent months Siri has been at the center of controversy due to the inevitable comparisons with other virtual assistants and due to the condemnation of many errors that affected its performance, this subtle novelty shows that the company wants to propose a more natural interaction and, perhaps, be the beginning of the expected renewal.
In addition, Apple also introduced iOS 17, iPadOS 17, macOS 14 Sonoma, new hardware products such as MacBook Air, Mac Studio, and Mac Pro, and introduced the highly anticipated Apple Vision Pro.
