“Hey Siri” Command In iOS 10 Enables Only One Device To Respond

Apple was pretty thorough when it showed of all the new features that iOS10 had to offer at the WWDC but it somehow missed the slight improvement it made to the “Hey Siri” command which most Siri users were waiting for.

Before iOS 10 the command would activate all iOS powered devices owned by the user creating an atmosphere of chaos which has now been remedied. The new update allows for the nearest device to respond to the “Hey Siri” command preventing the annoyance that one had to endure with multiple devices voicing their solutions or carrying commands.

The new iOS update will wake both the devices up which will then listen to the command but the action will be carried out by the nearest device as another command to stand down will be sent to the device further away.

We don’t really have the details about how this will actually work but we are content with the knowledge that it does. The courtesy of this update hasn’t been extended to Apple Watch as of yet but we are sure that Apple will remedy this because it’s no less annoying when your Apple Watch responds to a command given to your iPhone.

We are expecting the new beta of watchOS3 to include this feature whenever it comes out.
