  • The Now Fixed Siri Outage Leaves iPhone 4S Users Annoyed


    Although Apple’s new Siri personal assistant for the iPhone 4S experienced a few issues in availability shortly after the device’s launch last month, the recent hiccup Siri went through seems to be the worst yet. A new widespread outage appeared to be the cause of many user complaints recently. Siri problems were abundant with only intermittent service available throughout the course of the issue and users were constantly being faced with errors messages in which Siri reported being unable to connect to the network.

    The Siri service is currently labeled as being in beta according to Apple – and they seem to be working actively to refine the technology and infrastructure behind the feature. Apple continues to roll out the iPhone 4S, with 30 countries already under the belt, and another 15 to come online next week. It is reported that Siri currently offers support in English (U.S., U.K., and Australia) but Apple plans to release an update to support multiple languages early next year.

    The service has been reported as actively running at this point but it has left many feeling a bit frustrated. Siri outages aren’t the only issues iPhone 4S owners are having to deal with, as many have been constantly complaining about battery draining issues as well (which isn’t exclusive to the iPhone 4S either).

    Were you one of the many who experienced issues with Siri previously? For you iPhone 4S owners out there - are you content with your purchase or are you constantly struggling with the issues that continue to arise? Let us know below!

      Correct. But if you walked into an Apple store and asked 15 random customers what a "Beta" was, what percentage of those people do you think would actually know the meaning? Not very many.....and they don't explain it on the site either. It's just a tiny icon that most people wouldn't think twice about. And I'm pretty sure the retail store employees aren't going to give a heads up that it still needs work. So people naturally aren't going to expect these kinds of problems and will react as predictably so.

      It's been over 16 months since the last iPhone and the best they could do with Siri is release it in BETA form? With all the genius engineers, scientists, and software developers Apple has?

      Sounds to me like they waited a little too long to decide whether or not to implement this feature into the phone and then rushed an unfinished form of it out.

      I had a late night last night and wanted to sleep in this morning. So at 9AM I barely consciously mumbled the words. "Set an alarm for 11AM". When Siri responded, I am unable to connect to the network, I then went to set my alarm manually and in doing so realized I was not as tired as the comforts having siri made me believe. So now I am up posting this reply while I tidy up some other things around the house. LOL!

      The sooner people start realizing that nothing mechanical or electronic is ever going to work 100% correct 100% or the time the better all we will all be!! So what Siri hiccuped I would imagine that with everything ever made there has been hiccups and there will always be hiccups, nothing is perfectt.!

      I guess I am pretty lucky. I have not had any issues with Siri. On a semi-side note, does the voice to text (ie when sending SMS through the message app) use the same servers? I use that multiple times a day since launch and have had zero problems with that as well.
