Apple is keen to be at the forefront of protecting privacy online. So it’s surprising that for all these years Siri has required an Internet connection to work. It processes all your orders online, even for things that don’t have any online components, like setting timers or adjusting the volume. Just say “Hey Siri” when not connected to the Internet and you will get this: Siri offline

With iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, that is finally changing. Siri will gain a new speech recognition model on all devices with an A12 Bionic processor or later (ie iPhone XS / XR or later). This is a big plus for anyone concerned about privacy as it means your recorded voice never, intentionally or unintentionally, leaves your device.

Processing requests offline does more than improve privacy protections. Now you can place all kinds of orders with Siri without an internet connection. Setting timers and alarms, opening apps, turning on the flashlight, audio playback controls and even asking Siri to read new messages (everything you received before going offline).

In short, Siri will work on your devices and all information or functions that do not need an internet connection, it is very likely that Siri will be able to respond to you and do what you ask.

Taking a round-trip Internet connection out of the process will also make Siri faster. Siri starts listening and performs actions instantly, without a short pause. This will really change the way we use Siri.

Other new features of Siri

Apple has some improvements for Siri on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. None of them are groundbreaking, but they all offer quality of life improvements that should make using Apple’s voice assistant a little more enjoyable.

  • Siri can (optionally) advertise messages on CarPlay.
  • If you have AirPods, Siri can announce incoming notifications that are time sensitive (or activate any notification from an app).
  • You can ask Siri to control HomeKit devices at a specific time. For example, “turn off room lights at 10:00 pm”.
  • Integration with HomeKit will allow Siri to work on other equipment from third-party brands
  • Apple is also expanding Siri’s language support, with voice support for text-to-speech in more languages ​​and support for Indic and Native English.
