Apple on Monday aired a new television commercial for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, titled ‘Thank You Speech’ and starring “How I Met Your Mother” star Patrick Neil Harris (he had a cameo on Apple’s recent ‘Onions’ ad).

The 30-second clip shows off a tetherless Siri feature that users can optionally enable on their iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus in order to converse with the personal digital assistant using the ‘Hey Siri’ keyword even when their device is not connected to power.

And here it is.

“With Hands-free Siri on iPhone 6s you just say, ‘Hey Siri,’ and Siri’s there to help you with pretty much everything,” says Apple.

    They’re trying to position Hands-free Siri on the iPhone as a decent competitor to the far-field voice recognition of Amazon Echo. Siri can’t even compare. Besides, who keeps their phone sitting on a table like that?

    Yeah it would be cool if Siri got a major upgrade! Like for instance, I ask Siri are any of my contacts birthdays coming up. In my ideal world Siri would of been about to look at all the birthdays I have saved for my contacts. Instead it opened a wed search for “Are any of my contacts birthdays coming”
