    Has anyone seen a video that gets a good view of how long you have to hold down the home button to activate Siri?

    I hope it's not as long as voice control....

    Or you can doubletap and swipe right.

    Also once Siri is on screen you don't need to use the home button again just tap her icon

    Ugh. I hate having to hold the home button down for what seems like an eternity to get the voice control to come up, so I rarely use it as I feel like I can just perform the operation quicker. Not to become too Androidy here, but I sort of wish there was a dedicated hard button to activate Siri.

    I could be wrong on this but I think there's a way to activate it without pressing any buttons. Maybe an initial button press, but in the commercials you saw them use SIRI without pressing a button. Maybe just positive thinking.
