Cook on Siri: There’s More to Come

Apple CEO Tim Cook held his cards close to his chest during an AllThingsD D10 conference interview Tuesday evening, but he did let attendees know there’s more to come with the iPhone’s Siri voice control feature.

“There is more that it can do,” Mr. Cook told Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher during the interview. “I think you’ll be really pleased with some things you will see over the coming months.”

Even though Siri is still in beta it has drawn criticism for failing to accurately interpret some commands, offering answers that aren’t related to questions users ask, and for intermittent service outages, too.

Apple was hit with two lawsuits over Siri’s performance by users claiming the feature doesn’t match Apple’s advertising. Apple responded by asking the court to drop the lawsuits because the plaintiffs could’ve returned their iPhones if they weren’t happy with the features or performance.

Mr. Cook’s comments on where Siri is headed were vague, but his promise that Apple has more in store means there’s a chance we’ll get a taste of the company’s plans during its annual Worldwide Developers Conference in June. The keynote presentation at the event will be on June 11, and The Mac Observer will be on location with coverage of Apple’s announcements.
