Siri can understand and execute many commands offline. This means Siri does not require a Wi-Fi or data connection to complete the following list of commands:
Siri is always looking for ways to help. The personal assistant has come a long way, and Siri Suggestions has expanded to offer a variety of shortcuts on the fly. Siri offers up phone numbers, reminds you of birthdays, and delivers text while typing.
By monitoring your apps and usage directly on your device, Siri can make iOS more useful every day. Siri Suggestions show up in many places, such as automatically showing a flight status or asking to add a new contact detected in email.
Apple continues to improve Siri's capabilities and with iOS 14.5 the voice assistant gets brand new voice options. The revamped voices are in the English language, with both a female and male addition. These updated voices are recorded from live speakers, then processed using Apple's Neural text to speech engine. The engine helps spontaneously generated phrases sound more realistic, delivering smoother speech that flows naturally.
Apple's personal voice assistant offers a variety of options to customize the way it sounds. Siri supports many different languages tailored to regions around the world. When it comes to English, Apple has built-in a few options to tweak how Siri talks. The most basic option is choosing whether Siri speaks in a female or male sounding voice.
Playing music with Siri using your favorite streaming service just got easier. Instead of having to specify which service to use with each request, Siri can be preset to use any supported audio subscription by default. The days of ending song requests with "on Spotify" or "on Pandora" are now over. Siri can use services other than Apple Music without any extra direction.
