Apple answers the some questions related to Siri data, which all users and other privacy companies have. Siri store the personal data to its servers when you use iPhone and ask a question. A report was published on this Friday in which a representative of Apple confirmed that company stored the Siri data in Cloud for two years.
If the voice clips of Siri users are stored then a question comes in every user mind that if our privacy will compromise then what happen? Apple answer this question by saying that Apple has the same set of policies as Google and telecommunications companies have to keep your privacy and data.
Apple Confirms Siri Keeps the user data for Two years in Cloud
To give the answer to the question of American Civil Liberties Union yesterday, Apple send a representative Trudy Muller on Friday to explain the policy of company about Siri data. According to Trudy Muller: “Apple keep the Siri data only for two year in its server, if a user switched it off then all the related data to that person is deleted immediately.”
McMillan elaborates the full details about the Siri data on the bases of Muller explanation:
Apple also disjoins the user number from the voice clips after the six months as well as delete the number from the voice clip. Apple keep this disjoin file at least for 18 more months for testing and improvement.
Nicole Ozer, the American Civil Liberties Union lawyer who was the first person who raised the questions about the Siri Privacy also suggest the Apple to keep all these Siri Privacy details on the official Siri FAQ page. Because when more people should familiar with Apple rules and policies related to Siri then they will able to trust on Apple and use Siri without any privacy tension and it will be beneficial for the Apple.
Last March IBM make illegal to use Siri on its network due to some security reasons.

Apple has a tendency for setting the tone for the market and it did the same with Siri too. While Siri, Apple’s digital secretary is still beta, it has managed to make a name for itself against rivals like Google Now. Google Now was launched after Siri and showed more technical competence especially with Google Knowledge Graph functionality. However Apple has managed to overcome its dependency on Google for data since iOS 6 was released. The latest on the offing is that Siri would be available in multiple languages now.
Another thing that came up in an Apple job ad pertained on Siri’s responses and how they are going to get wittier. Apple needs someone with sufficient skills to introduce original dialogue in Siri’s mode of operation. It is their need that Siri standout as a recognizable element in their devices.
This news comes in response to Apple posting an ad directly relating to Siri’s responses. Another underlying thing is that Apple wants to go ahead in this race against its competitors. Also Apple acknowledges the fact that Siri is known for the way its exhibits her cultural know-how and knows how to be funny at times.
Apple also wants the candidate to improve the dialog while keeping the user response in context. They inherently want to increase and expand on Siri’s new capabilities. If selected, this candidate would also be part of multicultural and multilingual program for Siri as well. Now iPad also features the Siri voice command and it is speculated that Mac would so as well in the near future. This is being developed via tha OS X 10.9 software.
The company has always promoted on the light conversational style of Siri and how it has a proactive approach. It not only remembers what you say but is able to interpret and link it too. That being said, many users are of the idea that Apple should improve the response time of Siri and also functionality in the offline mode. This is currently being offered by Google Now.
