According to reports, Apple is planning to upgrade its virtual assistant, Siri. The new Siri is expected to be unveiled in June at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).

The revamped Siri will feature enhanced natural language processing (NLP) capabilities, empowering it to better understand and respond to user queries with improved accuracy and context awareness. Leveraging advancements in machine learning and neural networks, Apple intends to make Siri more intuitive and personalized, catering to individual user preferences and habits.

For instance, when you ask a question, “Hey Siri, what are some good hiking trails nearby?” Siri will not just provide a list but also understand the context and provide curated suggestions, as well as anticipate your next needs.

Siri steps up its game:

Siri has not kept up with rivals like Google Assistant and Alexa. They have become hubs for smart home integration, a space where Siri lags behind. The upgraded Siri could help Apple catch up by interacting with your smart lights, thermostats, and appliances, creating a connected and personalized home experience.

Security and privacy:

Apple is known for its focus on user privacy, and the new Siri will prioritize on-device processing to address privacy concerns by keeping user data securely on their device.

The New York Times report explains that Apple is feeling pressure to compete with Google and Amazon’s advancements in AI technology. This could explain why the company is focusing on developing its in-house AI solutions, including Siri, instead of relying on external sources.

However, it’s important to manage expectations as the actual capabilities of the new Siri might be more limited at launch. Additionally, relying on on-device processing for complex tasks could potentially impact battery life.
