People still don’t know how to use Siri, but Apple wants to change that

Apple Siri New Website

Without any advance warning, Apple suddenly revamped Siri’s page on its website late on Tuesday evening. The new page eliminates all the unnecessary descriptions of how Siri works and replaces them with actual suggestions of how to utilize the voice-controlled personal assistant.

“Talk to Siri as you would to a friend and it can help you get things done — like sending messages, placing calls, or making dinner reservations,” Apple explains at the top of the page. “The more you use Siri, the more you’ll realize how great it is. And just how much it can do for you.”

Below the short explanation, Apple has created a interactive toolbar of categories that Siri is familiar with: At a Glance, Staying in Touch, Getting Organized, Sports, Entertainment, Out and About, Getting Answers and Tips and Tricks. When you select a category, dozens of boxes will appear at the bottom of the page, offering suggested lines to read to Siri in order to get the information you need.

As 9to5Mac notes, the page was fairly useless until yesterday. Now, it could serve as a great landing page for both converts to iOS and longtime users who have never given Siri a chance.
