Siri iPhone 4S Voice Commands First Impressions

We have now been playing with the new Apple iPhone 4S for a few hours and had a chance to put its Apple’s new Siri Assistant through its paces with a few voice commands. I have to admit I have never been that much of a fan of voice commands and have dabbled with them a little on computers in the past. I also got that sinking feeling when starting to use Siri for the first time this morning when Siri had problems completing my commands.

When I first started asking Siri questions the results were not exactly what I expected and a few miss placed calls ensued. But after a little tweaking of my contacts and a little perseverance, Siri started to respond to my requests.

Once Siri started to learn who my close friends and family were, it became even easier to complete tasks like SMS, calls and reminders. The thing I had to remember is that the Siri feature is still a beta technology and once I had got to grips with its key commands (listed after the jump) everything started to drop in to place, after about 45 minutes.

iPhone 4S iCloud Upgrade Without A Computer Or iTunes Connection, Hands On

Have a look at our iPhone 4S review which includes videos, tons of photos and averything you need to know about the iPhone 4S, siri, and iOS 5.

Like many others this morning I picked up my new iPhone 4S and immediately stripped off the packaging to see if the iCloud feature on the new iPhone 4S would allow me to restore my backup I made to the iCloud last night from my old iPhone 4 equipped with iOS 5, without the need to use a computer or iTunes connection.

After dropping in the micro sim in to the new iPhone 4S I powered it up and started going through the setup procedure to start the restore. After the obligatory language questions I was asked to then select a Wi-fi network. For the purposes of testing I skipped with and selected mobile network but soon discovered that a restore was not able to complete via a mobile connect and required a Wi-Fi connection.

Quickly I popped into Starbucks I settled down and jump on their new free Wi-Fi service and restarted the setup process this time selecting the Starbucks Wi-fi connection and the option to restore my iPhone from the previous iCloud backup.
