Apple iPhone 4S Ad Featuring Siri: Assistant

Oct 21, 2011 - 8 Comments

Siri commercial

Apple has started to air TV commercials for the new iPhone 4S, the first of which focuses on Siri, the virtual intelligent voice assistant that is part of iOS 5 exclusive to the 4S. The ad features people asking questions to their iPhone, ranging from how to tie a bowtie to wondering about the weather, before Siri finally speaks in response to a question about needing a locksmith.

It’s a good commercial, although it certainly has a different feel to it than Apple’s past TV ads. Also fascinating is that the commercial itself is titled “Assistant” rather than “Siri”, but that may not mean much of anything.
