Apple doesn’t release any information when its voice activated virtual assistant, Siri, gets an update, but it would appear that Siri has recently been updated with some new features.
According to the guys over at Gadgetsteria, the latest update seems to have come around the time Apple released iOS 5.1, which was last week.
The latest version of Siri on the iPhone now comes with further Yelp integration, and this was recently confirmed by Yelp over on their blog.
Well, last week, Apple launched iOS 5.1 and with it, an updated Siri and Yelp integration on iPhone. Now when searching for a recommendation on local businesses, Siri will return Yelp-reviewed businesses and when you tap the star rating (BOOM!) you are immediately taken to the Yelp business profile page. Oh, the places you’ll go… now that you’ll have faster access to Yelp review highlights, quick tips, hours of operation, address, phone number, photos — the list goes on.
