Watch dwayne johnson siri ad for apple, we think it's lit.

When it comes to creative ads, you can put Apple on the list of companies that sure knows how to create that catchy ad and this ad is one of them.

In this ad, we see The Rock and Siri getting along so well you would almost believe this is how smart and efficient Siri is (alot of iPhone users would agree with this). Anyways the point of the Advert is for we Apple consumers to rejuvenate our faith in Siri.

The 3minute 45 seconds ad looks like a trailer of a robotic alien movie and at the end we see The Rock dominating the day by storming on the robot.

Check it out!!!

As at the time of writing this piece, it has gained over 2.2Million views on Apple's official YouTube Channel. Thanks to Dwayne ?

With the coming of Amazon's Alexa and Google's Assistant, Siri is finding that she's no longer the biggest bully in the sandbox.

She's not going to take this lying down though as there are possible plans to power her up to being the biggest bully again.

If reports coming out of Israeli gadget site The Verifier are true, then with the iOS 11 could come an even smarter Siri.

The source claims that Apple will be upgrading Siri with AI smarts, allowing the voice assistant to anticipate your actions by learning your behavior over time. Tied to users rather than devices, the AI learnings will carry over from your phone to your linked Mac and Apple TV device too, bringing personalized predictive text and messaging to each Apple product you own.

Now this is unverified and could well be smoke, but recent Apple patents have certainly pointed towards Apple taking Siri in this direction.

With Apple's WWDC 2017 is set to kick off on June 5 we will definitely know more  about this and see if it's true.

Apple's Siri has been a major feature of the iPhone for years now (from the iPhone 4S) and most will agree that she's pretty damn smart. If reports are anything to go by, then she might be in line for a major upgrade which will in turn make her smarter than ever.

According to a report on Digitimes, the Assistant could well come with a lot of major upgrade. This is in line numerous rumors that the next iPhone, possibly called the iPhone 8, will mark its 10-year anniversary with big changes like an edge-to-edge display and glass body along with a smarter Siri that can learn your behavior.

Apple have not confirmed this story yet meaning it may not be the case, or they're keeping their cards close to their chest.

At this time Siri is behind its major competitor, Google's combination of voice search, Google Now and Google's AI Assistant.

While Siri has included incremental updates and features since "she" was first introduced back in 2011. Siri can't answer follow-up questions or access different applications like Google Assistant can making her fall short of Google's little bot (Google's probably smirking at this).

So if these changes are made to Siri in 2017 and she is given the AI treatment, then it is safe to say that Siri will be able to go toe to toe with any other assistant in the market (and probably win)

In news that is sure to excite Apple Fanboys and girls, Siri, Apple's voice assistant is going to be able to help you send money!
While Siri is still pretty much an Apple thing, the company is beginning to open her up to be used by third parties.
 At its WWDC keynote back in June, the company confirmed app makers could let iPhone and iPad users send and receive money via Siri, with Square Cash and Monzo becoming the first to tap into that functionality.
Now, money giant PayPal announced it too now lets users in over 30 countries send and request money via using only their voice.
Sending and receiving is very easy, but you'll first need to link Siri with your PayPal account. This involves granting PayPal access to your Contacts and confirming via two-factor authentication (a code sent via text message) that you are who you say you are. Once that's done, you can simply say "Send Alice $20 using PayPal" and Siri will display a card summarizing the details of your request before asking you to confirm or cancel the transfer. The device must be unlocked first, so friends won't be able to steal your phone and send themselves money.
This new innovation is currently available in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, UK, United Arab Emirates and the United States. It supports a variety of languages and recognizes your friends' accounts by either their email address or phone number.
So now sending money just got a hell of a lot easier.
