    ever since i saw the moto x, i always loved the idea of being able to use a phone hands free. whether I'm trying to cook and i have my hands dirty or for some reason my hands are full. I have been playing around with hey siri, and i have to say that i am completely and utterly in love with it. was just cooking earlier and got a text message, didn't wanna have to wash my hands and stop my cooking so i simply said "hey siri" and started asking her to read me my message, i was also able to reply and send the message with ease ah the iPhone just makes me fall in love with it all over again. what are your first impressions of hey siri?

    only thing that bugs me is that i can only use her when the phone is plugged in and charging.. other than that thumbs up to apple!

    My guess is that iPhone 6 will have a dedicated voice coprocessor like the MotoX so that it will work when not plugged in without eating up battery life.

    I haven't tried it yet because Siri & I hate each other. Maybe if I change her to a different voice, I'll try to build a friendship or at least an understanding LOL

    If it was available at all times I'd probably use it more

    I had my iPad plugged in at home... and it must have heard something from the TV that sounded enough like "Hey Siri" that the iPad woke up, and Siri was looking for more input...

    I don't think so. They specifically described how this will work which is why I doubt it will work any differently for the iPhone 6. Whatever functionality the 6 will have that sets it apart will be unique to its announcement and not be extra features from software announced at WWDC. At least historically that is how they have worked.

    My wife loves the touchless voice on her Moto X. What's really great is that it has to be programmed so it will only activate with her voice. I sit there and try to mimic her voice and so do my kids. No dice. Only activates when my wife says "ok google now". Very cool. This should be a function on every platform.

    I have tried it on my iPod and I have to say the pick up distance is pretty good.

    What devices will "hey Siri" work on? Apple has a history of only making new features available on new devices.

    Any device that currently has Siri on iOS 7 will be able to use it

    Well I should say I'm assuming that's what devices it should work on. But it has to be plugged in to a power source to work.

    Nope, I think it's more of a battery life thing then anything else.

    I'm one of the ones that feels I shouldn't have to jail break to get the features out of a phone I need. If it doesn't do what I need then time to look at something else.

    I have been messing with Siri a lot and I find it to be much better. Listens and understands better. The Hey Siri feature is pretty cool. I didnt know it worked like that until I plugged it in last night and said something with the name Siri in it. The iPhone awoke and I thought that was pretty neat.
