Siri by the numbers: interesting stats about Apple’s assistant

By , May 24, 2012

Ever since Apple unveiled Siri at its iPhone 4S media event last fall, the digital assistant has remained in the spotlight. Whether it’s celebrity-laden TV spots or class-action lawsuits, it seems like it’s always making headlines.

But some would argue that Siri is more of a black eye for Apple than an accomplishment. It’s spent the last 9 months in beta, its location services still aren’t available abroad, and its functionality in general is still super limited.

In fact, is anyone even using the feature anymore? Infographic time!

The folks over at t3n News just published a sizable infographic that is loaded with interesting facts and stats on Apple’s digital assistant. Check it out:

As WWDC approaches, and the unveiling of iOS 6 draws near, you have to wonder if Apple has anything planned for Siri. Will it receive performance enhancements? Third-party API acces? Where will the feature be in two years?

    I think it’ll probably be awesome in 10 years time, but for the moment I don’t bother with it.

      That’s quite an over-estimation. It’ll be more like 1-2 years.

        That’s quite wishful thinking. It’ll be more like 4-5 years.

        That’s still too long, I don’t think you give apple enough credit. The iPhone itself has been out for 5 years and it’s come a long way.

    I’m not an native English speaker, and I user siri all the time to work with the calendar, reminders and alarms.

    For me it is faster that doing this manually, just a “Remind me to call home at 9 pm” takes a second

    I use it almost daily, though I have sprint and can be extremely slow.

    I typed this using siri’s dictation tool.

    I imagine Apple would be far more stringent with third party Siri access than they are with the app store. I expect it’ll be coming largely from big players like spotify or imdb.

    I use it for making nearly all my calls, dictating most of my emails and text.I find setting alarms and timers and reminders time consuming and troublesome, but, it’s a lot better to use it with Siri.

    Siri is only useful with tweaks. I use it mainly to ask about sports scores

    Using Siri daily. One of the main reasons I upgraded.

    I dig Siri. It’s not perfect but it works well. I use it with Dictation most of the time. I use the set alarm about 4-5 times a day. It’s just used to remind me of stuff, but not to actually wake me up. I think Apple has an Ace up there sleeves for Siri in iOS 6.

    Siri works about 95 per cent of the time for me. The times where it doesn’t work is when I talk soft or stutter or slur my words, but the rest of the time it does what I want. Give me a 45 minute timer, call my wife, remind me to do this or that, is it going to rain next week, tweet this or send a text to him or her, works all the time.

    I use Siri everyday. Searching the web, playing music, setting timers, making reminders.

    Don’t know what I did without her

    I hope we can use Siri by just callling her name, then your query. Pressing the button every now and then seems tiring, this would be cool since you just have to raise your voice or when you’re lazy to pick your iPhone up.
