• Accuracy in Siri Queries Continues to Improve

    The well-known Piper Jaffray analyst, Gene Munster, issued the latest version of his Siri report card, noting that Siri has continued to improve under iOS 7, particularly in terms of being able to properly interpret questions being asked. He had the following to say regarding the improvement:

    The primary improvement between Siri in iOS 6 and iOS 7 came from its performance in noisier areas, where Siri was able to translate better through a noisy environment (94% vs. 83% correct in Aug iOS 6). Based on our testing, iOS 7 Siri's net ability to answer questions (factors in questions not correctly understood) improved to 79% from 77% in August with iOS 6.
    These improvements in Siri’s understanding come alongside but separate from Apple’s continued effort to reduce its reliance on Google. This was evidenced by Siri’s shift to emphasize Bing, Wikipedia, and WolframAlpha results as opposed to results from Google’s search engine. In his recent testing, Munster noted that only 4% of Siri’s answers relied on Google, compared to 17% in August testing and 27% in December 2012.

    Apple’s Siri was also compared to Google Now, finding that the two services seem to be tied in effectiveness with a “C+” score after Siri held a substantial lead in the year-ago testing. In the most recent test, Google Now actually held small leads in content areas such as commerce information, while Siri performed significantly better for operating system controls.

    Have you found Siri being more useful after upgrading to iOS 7?

      I bought an i5 in September. I use Siri often, it rarely ever fails me even in somewhat loud areas. Very happy with it, and I had tested Siri previously with my brother's phone.
