Apple’s personal assistant Siri Apple is part of the core functionality of all the company’s products. Brain-son of former Apple CEO Steve Jobs, this distinct voice on iPhones performs every possible task with which it is assigned – perhaps reminding the user to a meeting at some point or reporting the weather. It even gives the best advice for philosophical life. As Apple’s vice president, Phil Schiller, was initially launched, Siri is probably “boasting the coolest iPhone 4S” at launch.

The organization is known for building the first computer mouse prototype in 1964. Siri has been launched in the Apple App Store and later; Received a call from Steve Jobs made a purchase offer Siri.

What was surprising was behind this technology,” he added.
With the launch of iOS 7, Apple changed Siri’s voice by hiring new people with different accents and voices. However, Bennett’s contribution remained unchanged
