Maybe for a remote trigger, set the phone up for a photo, get people organized, "Siri, take picture", *click*. "Siri, zoom to 5 times and take picture" *click*

Also, if it could be used in a series of events like a macro, "Siri take picture and send to wife with message "Check out this sunset".

Interestingly, even here in Canada, there is some limited location-aware stuff you can do, as Siri "learns" your location from repeated commands. I.E. "Siri, what is the weather report for Toronto Canada" eventually becomes "Siri what's the weather report?"

Still, it'll be nice to see full location-awareness. It's not a big deal to wait though - good technology takes time, and Apple is willing to do that in order to get it right (um, recent battery woes notwithstanding).

Haptic Feedback & Siri Mute

First and foremost I wish for haptic feedback. Second I would like Siri to be able to turn on and off mute for the phone instead of that damn small switch on the side of the phone which is a you know what to reach with a case on the phone. *crosses fingers*

If I were head of customer relations at Apple I would give out a free Gum Pro to anyone who is having this issue (assuming they want to keep their phone) to get them by until a fix is available. I hope 5.0.2 lets me turn off 3G

Add an additional page to the left of the music controls/volume slider in the multi-tasking tray. Was that so hard?

Add an option to display the toggles in the Notifications shade (see it would be an option just like the other widgets).

It's fine that they add the functionality to Siri, but please also add the functionality to iPhones that don't have Siri.

I would enjoy having hardware toggles on the multi task tray, maybe a couple swipes to the left or so. But if not it would at least be nice to be able to do it with Siri.

I hope that's not all in 5.1. It wouldn't give non-4S users any reason to update.
im pretty sure 5.1 will have other things besides new siri features. it probably will be out around the same time as the iPad 3 and that will have new features. there will probably be a ton of bug fixes too for iOS... hopefully the music app will be better!

Really? You're going to mute your phone by SPEAKING to it and having it reply out loud "I will now mute your iPhone, devnu11."

How about start by turning off the infrared sensor when raise to speak is off. It's constantly running, wasting battery.

isn't siri mostly server-side?

Doesn't seem like they would need an iOS update to add functionality to siri, they should be able to do it on their end.

Then you'd have to shout at Siri. Does Siri understand shouting at distances of several meters?

It's still quirky after 5.0.1.

If you toggle OFF 'Raise to Speak', it'll keep the sensor ON until the phone is power cycled.

I have not been able to get the sensor to stop firing while the screen is on no matter what I have Siri set too. Siri Off, Siri On Raise to Speak OFF. Needs to be fixed. Constant monitoring isn't helping the usage battery drain.

I hope the the long anticipated wait for the update to fix an increase of 2% battery life is worth it. 2 more min of Angry Birds should make everyone happier!

How effing lazy does a person have to be to ask Siri to take a picture for them? You have to be holding the phone to activate Siri and line up the shot - just press the camera button.

Actually, my first thought was that this probably meant this rumor was more wishful thinking. And please Apple, don't pollute the interface with buttons galore... This is so Windows thinking.

It's not just the act of taking the photo, it's uploading it to Facebook, etc.

----------

There is also a bug where the speaker phone is left on for a while after Siri is used-this makes for very loud screen off sound.

OMG, can't wait for this update. I can barely get from 7am to 7pm with less than 20% battery. Horrible for me.

my music app has been messed up since iOS5, and I'm on a iPhone4.
would be nice to maybe see siri come to the iphone4 (not likely)


i must admit, I'm still having battery issues, after 5.0.1
so will be nice to see it fixed,
