The iPhone’s pioneering digital assistant, Siri, developed by Stanford University research offshoot SRI International and acquired by Apple in 2010, will no longer require its signature salutation to be summoned to action, it was learned Monday at Apple’s
annual developers conference WWDC in Cupertino, Calif.
Instead, according to Apple Insider and others, it will now, for those with the iOS 17 operating system installed, suffice to say “Siri.”
In addition to abbreviating the summoning phrase, Siri, built into Apple’s iOS, iPadOS, tvOS and other related operating-system variants, will now have the capacity to handle more than one assistance request at a time, Apple Insider reported.
