Apple’s ‘Hey Siri’ Feature in iOS 9 Uses Individualized Voice Recognition

Following the release of the first public beta for iOS 9.1 yesterday, a few of the testers have come across a new feature introduced in the update. Somewhere in the Settings app, it appears that Apple has quietly added a set-up process for the new „Hey Siri“ feature coming to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, thanks to a built-in M9 motion coprocessor that enables the phones’ always-on functionality.

Although unconfirmed by Apple, the discovery in iOS 9.1 suggests that Siri will be able to begin detecting specific user voices and determine whether or not the owner of the iPhone in question is speaking to her. Similar in vein to the way Apple aimed its Touch ID feature to work better and better the more you unlocked an iPhone using the fingerprint scanning sensor, it seems the set-up process will guide users into stating words or phrases to better acclimate Siri with each iPhone owner.

Found in General > Siri > Allow ‘Hey Siri’, the new always-on feature is the next step-up in the technology by Apple, allowing users to ask Siri questions or make changes within the iPhone’s apps by simply stating „Hey Siri“ near the iPhone.

Thanks Alan and Daniel!
