LOS ANGELES — For years, Apple has used the stage of its Worldwide Developers Conference to announce upgrades to the Siri personal assistant that would make it more useful.
This year’s plan, according to a Siri trick Apple has put out there: Siri will be smarter, get a new look and a new voice.
Ask Siri to tell you about the WWDC conference, which starts June 4th in San Jose, and you get one of three answers both in audio and written form.
—“I’m gonna have a shiny new home. Well, not really shiny, more meshy and matte.”
—”La, la, la, Siri is getting a brand new voice.”
—”I don’t want to brag, but I’m getting a lot smarter. It might be all that late night studying I’ve been doing.”
