Apple Could Drop the 'Hey' in 'Hey Siri' Next Week [Gurman]

Apple could finally drop the 'Hey' in 'Hey Siri' next week, according to a new report from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman.

In a tweet last evening, Gurman says the change has been a major project at Apple.

Everyone is asking about Siri, AI and WWDC on Monday. One item I haven't mentioned in a while has been a major project to drop the "Hey" from "Hey Siri." I'd look out for that possibility next week.

Having a two word trigger phrase makes it much easier for Apple to correctly identify command requests. However, a single word trigger, like 'Alexa' used by Amazon, allows users to speak to the assistant in a more natural way.

Previous reports have predicted other changes for Siri including integration into third-party apps and services; as well as, an improved ability to understand users and take the correct course of action.

Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference takes place next week. The keynote address will stream at 10am PT on July 5, 2023. Grab the WWDC 2023 wallpaper and download the iClarified app or follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and RSS for full coverage of the event!
