I have to agree with Rich. Siri has improved, more useful than ever on iPhone, but it still feels weird to use it in public.
“Hey Siri, shut up…” still gets a chuckle around the house. Nobody blinks an eye when I ask Siri for the date, or who won the 49ers football game, or the weather forecast, or even how long it will take to get to the mall in traffic.
We do the same thing here.
That’s it. Any additional dialog or instructions gets a raised eyebrow from anyone listening nearby, less at home of course, definitely in public. Siri has been around for years already, and Apple continues to improve responses, response time, and Shortcuts– though they take some effort to understand– can be valuable, in private or public.
I want to use Siri more but I don’t want to be so conspicuous. Maybe Face ID can perform lip reading.
