Apple's just released the new public beta versions of iOS 17, iPadOS 17, and macOS Sonoma, and boy, theres some big news! Bilingual Siri is now on board, letting users mix up English with some Indic languages.
This feels somewhat reminiscent of the post I had on my blog about jazzing up Siri with large language models (LLMs). Just like I was daydreaming about Siri figuring out our jumbled commands, this update shows Apple's getting serious about making Siri more chilled-out, user-friendly, and cool with our language habits.
Here's hoping Apple's next move includes cramming more LLM magic into Siri, shaking things up in the digital assistant world.
