Voice-based assistants like Siri are a useful approach to use your phone hands-free, as good as mostly being faster than typing or tapping, nonetheless Apple competence one day let we use iMessage to form messages to Siri instead.
That thought comes from a patent, speckled by 9to5Mac, and while it competence sound like a step retrograde there are situations where such a underline could come in handy, such as if you’re somewhere where there’s too most sound for Siri to hear you, or where vocalization is frowned on – such as a library, or indeed somewhere that we only wish some privacy.
Your interactions with Siri would be displayed like any other present messaging conversation, with content froth for both your questions and Siri’s replies – so, importantly, Siri would give a created rather than oral response as well.
Patents aren’t products
It’s value observant that patents mostly don’t transition from thought to reality, and when they do it can take years to happen, so we competence not see this underline combined to Siri for a prolonged time, if during all.
Then again, it’s probable that it could arrive as shortly as iOS 11, generally as Siri is rumored to be removing an renovate as partial of a update, with a partner pronounced to be gaining a ability to learn and expect your habits.
Whether any of this will indeed make it into Apple’s AI partner stays to be seen, though we should know soon, as iOS 11 is expected to be announced during WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) on Jun 5.
