To say that Siri was introduced with a lot of fanfare would be a gross understatement. Siri of course made its debut on the iPhone 4s, and far from being one of many new and exciting feature, Siri was positioned as the iPhone 4s' flagship feature. Accompanied by a massive marketing campaign, Siri, or so Apple told us, was going to forever change the way we interact with our smartphones.
More than six years since its release, Siri hasn't exactly lived up to the potential many in the tech industry thought it had. Now that's not to say that Siri is completely useless. Far from it, Apple's intelligent assistant has become incredibly useful and more reliable over the past few years. Still, Siri's shortcomings become impossible to ignore when measured against rival personal assistants from the likes of Google and Amazon.
