iOS 5.1 Will Be Released Soon With Siri Changes

Siri

A report that was released earlier this week states that Apple is preparing another software update for iOS. The update is said to include a version of Siri that is more integrated into the OS, for example it will have the ability to turn your WIFI and Bluetooth on and off, sources claim. It may even have the ability to take pictures and videos for you. We don’t see how this one could be practical for day to day camera use. We believe that the primary reason for using Siri is that it allows you to be handsfree. Surely, some more useful features could be added, like having the ability to update your Facebook and Twitter accounts using Siri. Siri could use some development with its nationality, for example at present you cant use Siri to find maps or directions on your phone outside of the U.S. This has caused many people to be disappointed with the new assistant feature.
