Apple’s personal assistant has received some significant upgrades
in its transition over to iOS 7
, but is anyone actually using Siri
? According to a survey by Intelligent Voice
, a surprisingly small number of people on iOS 7 have used Siri even once, much less used it on a regular basis. Intelligent Voice
interviewed 2,330 people for the survey, and only 15% of respondents said that they had used Siri. In a related survey, nearly half of a much smaller pool of respondents said that they believed Apple
had “oversold Siri’s voice recognition capabilities
.” Smartphone manufacturers have been attempting to perfect voice commands for years, and no matter how effective Siri truly is, many users just don’t want to take the time to learn a new method of interaction.
