Siri can be a life saver… literally

Siri probably isn’t the most frequently used feature on your iPhone. It’s occasionally hard of hearing, it’s rarely more convenient than simply unlocking your phone and finding the information you need, and it can be obnoxious to attempt to use it in public. But in a moment of desperation, Apple’s digital assistant could save your life. More →

Upcoming new iPhone feature could make you fall in love with Siri all over again

I absolutely hate the concept of voicemails. I don’t want to leave you one or listen to yours. Texting is definitely a better way of exchanging messages. If you feel the same way and you’re an iPhone user, then you’ll be glad to hear that Apple is rumored to be working on fixing voicemail once and for all. And interestingly, Siri is involved. More →

Siri, why the heck did you just call the cops?

The following is a very crazy iPhone bug that you should be aware of, as it might come in handy in some situations – though hopefully you’re never going to have to use it. Apparently, asking Siri to charge your phone to 100% will trigger an emergency call to the police. That means you could use the command to ask for help without letting your assailant know that you’re about to call the cops on him or her. More →

Siri on iOS 9 vs. Google Now: An in-depth comparison

The past few weeks have been quite busy for developers and technology fans in general. First, Google’s annual Google I/O conference brought us a look at all the new software we can expect to see from Google in 2015. Then, Apple’s WWDC 2015 keynote gave us glimpses at iOS 9, OS X El Capitan, WatchOS 2, Apple Music and more.

Few people would argue that Apple came away the big winner when it comes to generating buzz, as expected. But that doesn’t mean Google’s announcements were duds — far from it. In fact, Google showed off some impressive new stuff at I/O, and now it’s time to see how one of the company’s most impressive new features stands up to iOS 9. More →

9 funny things Siri says about the Apple Watch

Apple’s virtual personal assistant Siri spawned a number of similar offerings from rivals including Samsung and Microsoft, and for good reason.

Of course, the developers behind Siri also enjoy having a little fun from time to time, and they remind us constantly that Siri definitely has a sense of humor.

During the course of today’s presentation, Apple’s Kevin Lynch demoed how users can activate Siri straight from their wrists. To do so, Apple Watch wearers can simply double tap the button located beneath the digital crown. Additionally, Lynch relayed that Siri on the Apple Watch can be activated via a “Hey Siri” command, a feature first unveiled with iOS 8.
