Siri Questions
What is Siri? Siri is a personal assistant application for iOS. The application uses natural language processing to answer questions, make recommendations, and perform actions by delegating requests to an expanding set of web services. Siri claims that the software adapts to the user's individual preferences over time and personalizes results, as well as accomplishing tasks such as making dinner reservations and reserving a cab.

Siri was originally introduced as an iOS application available in the AppStore. Siri was acquired by Apple Inc. on April 28, 2010. Siri had announced that their software would be available for BlackBerry and for Android-powered phones, but all development efforts for non-Apple platforms were cancelled after Apple's purchase.

Siri is now an integrated part of iOS 5, and available only on the iPhone 4S, launched in October 2011.

Independent developers claim that they ported Siri to iPhone4. However, the videos they posted for proof only show the User interface of the application, excluding any voice commands, leading some newsites to conclude that they did not prove anything.

Siri was founded in December 2007 by Dag Kittlaus (CEO), Adam Cheyer (VP Engineering), and Tom Gruber (CTO/VP Design), together with Norman Winarsky from SRI International's venture group. On October 13, 2008, Siri announced it had raised an $8.5 million Series A financing round, led by Menlo Ventures and Morgenthaler Ventures. In November 2009, Siri raised a $15.5 million Series B financing round from the same investors as in their previous round, but led by Hong-Kong billionaire Li Ka-shing.

It was announced on October 4, 2011 that Siri is included with the iPhone 4S. The new version of Siri is integrated into iOS, and offers conversational interaction with many applications, including reminders, weather, stocks, messaging, email, calendar, contacts, notes, music, clocks, web browser, Wolfram Alpha, and maps. Currently, Siri only supports English (US, UK, and Australian), German and French, and has limited functionality outside of the US.

After announcing that Siri is included with the iPhone 4S, Apple removed the existing Siri app (which ran on all iPhone models) from the App Store. According to some news stories, a developer of 9to5mac was able to port Siri back to iPhone 4, though the performance and quality is not very good, and they did show only the User interface of the application, excluding any voice commands. According to the hackers, a filter on Apple's servers controls whether Siri is used on an iPhone 4S or other devices.
