What You Need to Know About AAPL’s iOS 7.1 Update: Siri Pays Attention
Siri is Apple’s personal assistant, a key iPhone feature and an important part of CarPlay. Siri has had some growing pains, but AAPL has been addressing the issues one by one.
In the new iOS 7.1 update, Siri gets a little bit smarter by offering manual control. Some iPhone users found Siri would cut them off in the middle of a query; naturally that leads to poor results.
If Siri on your iDevice is prone to cutting you off mid-sentence, this new iOS update lets you hold down the Home button when speaking to Siri, who will then wait patiently until you release the button.
