Thanks to iOS update, Siri now gets smarter and sounds more like a human. Apple Inc. claims that the new updated version of Siri from iOS 11 has been improved with advances in the device learning and artificial intelligence (AI).

According to MacRumors, Siri sounds more human now since it adopts better pronunciation and various inflection depending on what the AI is being said. Aside from that, there are also a lot of other improvements, which are all included in the released Siri video below.

With the new iOS 11, AI Siri uses on-device learning beyond all of the user's Apple devices in order to get details on the interests, preferences, and customs of the owner.

Siri, the very famous AI of Apple is now indeed a smart tech assistant. In fact, the AI can now do things such as suggesting a topic that the user might like in Apple News and suggest a Calendar reminder based on schedules and appointments that were booked in Safari.

In addition to that, as reported by Gadget Hacks, a user can also now type to Siri when he is not in the mood for talking. Siri might also make QuickType words or phrases of names, movies or places suggesting based on things the user recently viewed.

The AI of the Cupertino-based tech company has built in translation, which is included in the capabilities of the updated operating system. The languages in the translations include English to Chinese, French, Italian, Spanish, and German.

Aside from having a more human sound, as well as abilities, Siri has also improved in terms of music capabilites implemented for HomePod. It can play music the user like and offer up answers to any queries that are music-related such as "What song is this?" or "Who is the drummer in this band?" when the user is listening to music.
