In recent years, users have expressed their disappointment with Apple’s Siri “intelligent” assistant. The limitations of Siri have become even more pronounced with the recent launch of OpenAI’s ChatGPT, which has demonstrated the incredible potential of artificial intelligence. As a result, Apple’s version of AI appears to fall short, making HomePod and other Apple products less useful than they could be.
ChatGPT, which was launched last November, has taken AI out of the realm of science fiction and into reality. Microsoft recently integrated ChatGPT into the Bing search engine, giving users the ability to ask questions in a natural way and receive concise and relevant answers. This has placed a spotlight on the limitations of Siri, which has only improved slightly since its debut in 2011.
Siri is limited in its abilities, often requiring users to carefully phrase their commands for it to understand. While Siri has made some progress, with a more human-like voice, it has not kept up with the advancements in AI technology. As a result, Siri falls short when it comes to answering broad and vague questions.
Voice-driven computing has enormous potential, with the ability to answer questions quickly and easily. However, Siri often relies on sending links to an iPhone, instead of providing a direct answer. In contrast, ChatGPT can handle follow-up questions, understand questions in the context of a conversation, and provide insightful responses to a range of queries.

Apple is well aware of the limitations of Siri, and the company has scheduled an AI summit for its employees in mid-February. Apple has traditionally developed its own AI software in-house, with the help of smaller companies specializing in AI.
However, with the success of ChatGPT, it remains to be seen whether Apple will continue this strategy or consider partnering with OpenAI.
