    I enabled this on my Air today and have utilized it quite a few times ! I have it enabled on my 5C also and can't wait till I actually need it in the car... Instead of having to pick up my 5C and hold the home button to get Siri I can just summons her with a simple "hey Siri!" lol

    It certainly is very convenient and useful indeed!

    Used it this morning. Hey Siri, what time is it? Answer: 5:51am, way too early. Lol

    As others have said, it would have been great if the phone did not have to be plugged in. I use Siri a good amount and that would be nice.
    What I do think they should have done though is make it available only to "your" voice, like the MotoX does when off. Anyone can trigger her, even the TV.

    The feature is disabled by default so you need to go to Settings>General>Siri to enable it

    A great feature and have been using it all through the betas. But since the GM I've found it to be too sensitive (if that's the right word). When I speak to my son or call his name (Pessi), it activates and you obviously have a couple of similar sounding letters in there. Yesterday I was talking to him about his dinner and it just activated and started telling me about the weather for the next 3 days! Very annoying.

    I see this as a huge flaw in the Hey Siri implementation. Anyone or anything can activate it. The Moto X requires you to train it to recognize your voice only. Apple's implementation opens up your iDevice to all sorts of pranks (setting alarms for 3 in the morning on a co-worker's plugged in iPhone) or just plain annoyances (activating based on something it heard on TV). In the case of Hey Siri, Apple neither did it first nor did it better.

    I'm sure they will be able to tweak it based on user feedback. You can always send your concerns to them here:

    Thank you Robert

    I agree with everyone after updating my girlfriends i5 and enabling Hey Siri "mind you she uses the male voice" last night I tried to ask Siri the temperature and I got both barrels at once

    This is not working for me another guy's voice in my bedroom

    All you need to do is add a plugged-in iPad to the mix. Then you'll get Siri in 3D! Can you image three iDevices all responding to the same "Hey Siri" inquiry? That's just nuts!

    Listening to Sirius NFL Radio on the way home. Siri heard "senior bowl" and started looking for local Nordstrom stores!
