Apple dropping 'Hey' from 'Hey Siri,' and allowing users to issue multiple commands

Apple is dropping "Hey" from "Hey Siri," and allowing users to provide multiple commands without needing to summon the assistant repeatedly.

During the WWDC event on Monday, Apple announced that it will now use the shortened phrase "Siri" instead of the previous hands-free voice command "Hey Siri" in iOS 17.

The company also noted that it would add support for multiple commands. After a user activates the voice assistant, they can issue additional commands in succession without summoning Siri again.

The "Siri" command can be used on any iPhone and iPad capable of running iOS 17 and iPadOS 17.

However, the feature is only available on Macs with Apple Silicon and the second-generation AirPods Pro.

Software updates will be available to developers as betas on June 5, as public betas in July, and released to the public in the fall.
