Siri shares her thoughts on iOS 8 and WWDC, loves her new home


iOS 8 Siri
iOS 8 is right around the corner, for the general consumer. For developers and people that have access to Apple’s developer portal, the third beta has been available for a little bit of time now. And with it, plenty of new features. Plus, you can interact with the new Siri.
There are some changes to Siri, to give her some improvements and new features, and you can also get some interesting responses based on the questions you ask. As usual, Siri has a bit of snark to her responses, but it’s all in tongue-in-cheek good fun. She’s also quick to drop some hints regarding some features baked into iOS 8, including HomeKit and Apple’s programming language, Swift.
As revealed by MacRumors, the responses vary only slightly when asked the same question, but they’re golden in their own right. When asked about her thoughts on iOS 8, and alluding to HomeKit features like smart appliances, she drops this one liner:
I’m just thrilled about iOS 8 — It’s like moving into a bigger, nicer house. And I get to turn the lights on and off.
When asked about her opinion on the Worldwide Developers Conference, and her small presence there, she’s especially insightful towards her own feelings:
Impressive, but… you’d think they could have talked about me for more than thirty seconds. Sniff.
There are new features like Shazam integration, allowing users to use Siri to identify a song playing. Siri could also see major improvements down the line with neural networking in the future. Siri’s upgrading with iOS 8 later this year, with an expected launch in September, with the new iPhone 6.
