When does Siri officially come off Beta? I get that there's no date announced yet but do you think Apple will formally announce "we're off beta!"?

Seems like by keeping it vague it's a catch-all for all the times it doesn't work quite right.

Even so with the significant improvements to "fit and finish" to Siri with iOS 7, they'd take the beta title off.

Tangent - but Siri is seriously hampered by Apple Maps' lack of data.

Last night asked for "Directions to TD Canada Trust", nothing found. Type it into Apple Maps, nothing found. Type it into Google Maps, 20+ locations found.

Not sure that Siri can fully come off "beta" until Maps improve even more.
