Even with iOS 10, Apple’s current generation mobile operating system, there are a bunch of things to list about when it comes to users hating on Siri. The virtual personal assistant, despite with enjoyable sass when being asked certain questions, progress towards the AI has been relatively slow. In fact, the feature was an absolute mess when the tech firm released the beta version of the artificial intelligence that went alongside with the Apple 4S back in 2011. While the assistant’s features and capabilities expanded since that time, it has been slow in keeping up with current trends and demands of consumers everywhere. According to BGR, there are still a lot of wrinkles to be ironed out for the virtual assistant to be as fluidly functioning as possible. Also, it has been reported that at least one of those wrinkles will apparently be fixed by the end of September of this year.
Siri Will Get a Fix in iOS 10 Update Happening at the End of September
If you’re a regular user of an iPhone, and you have a problem with using Siri, then you might head on to Twitter, Facebook, or even at Apple’s support forum to complain that the virtual assistant is not delivering the expectations that come with iOS 10. In doing so, well, you won’t be able to accomplish much, that’s for sure. But it does help to release your anger and frustrations in a particular medium. You might even chat it up with other people that have similar problems pertaining to Apple’ AI. But if you’re a celebrity, like Barbra Streisand, and you also have a problem with Siri, then you might have another option that you can take – call Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook directly and convince him to fix it.
As per Hollywood Reporter, there was an interview with NPR that happened last month wherein Barbra Streisand did share a funny little statement. The anecdote even included a possible confirmation of an upcoming iOS 10 update that will be released on the 30th of September of this year. Furthermore, it is expected that Apple will release said mobile operating system to the public 2 weeks before this patch rolls out.
Obviously, Apple has not made the update pertaining to iOS 10 public, but the information does seem credible enough that it would be akin taking it straight from the horse’s mouth itself. With Streisand’s interview with NPR, she pulled out her own iPhone and asked Siri the following question: “who’s was the only female vocalist who’s had hit records for six straight decades?” The answer was, of course, “Barbra Streisand.” However, the AI pronounced her name incorrectly.
