In the style of “Alexa” .. Soon, “Siri” will answer your requests without the word “Hey”.

Apple is copying Amazon’s Alexa with a major makeover of Siri, a leaker claims.

And according to Apple tipster Mark Gurman, Siri users will soon only need to say “Siri” instead of “Hey Siri” when activating the personal assistant.

The change will match Alexa, the virtual assistant from rival Amazon, which requires users to simply say “Alexa” without the word “hello” first.

It can be implemented across multiple Apple operating systems, including iOS for iPhones, as well as iPadOS, watchOS, macOS, and more.
And Gorman has already revealed that Apple plans to unveil its mixed reality headset in less than two months.

Gorman revealed the news in a recent issue of his weekly Power On newsletter, adding that the change to Siri could be implemented either this year or in 2024.

“The company is working on an initiative to drop the word ‘Hey’ in the trigger phrase so that the user only needs to say ‘Siri’ with a command. The company has been testing the simplified wake-up word with employees and collecting the necessary training data,” he said.

It might seem like a “small change”, Gorman said, but for Apple employees it was a “technical challenge” that required “a significant amount of AI training and basic engineering work”.

“The complexity involves Siri’s ability to understand the single phrase ‘Siri’ in different accents,” he said.

The leaker added that Apple will integrate “Siri” more deeply into third-party applications and services and improve its ability to understand users and take the right action.

According to MacRumors, Siri updates could be included in iOS 17, the next major update for Apple’s software.
