Are Apple’s Ads about Siri Misleading?
March 27th, 2012
The plaintiff alleges that the Siri functionality shown in these commercials are works of fiction, and that if you requested the same sort of information from Siri, you wouldn’t be as lucky in getting the correct information.
Interestingly, the complaint also states that, on the Apple website, buried in the bowels of the site, is a statement that “Siri is currently in beta and [Apple will] continue to improve it over time.”
Some consumers and critics have continued to complain about the iPhone 5 version of Siri, which offers new capabilities such as telling phone users sports scores and the ability to make reservations. But Siri is still listed as in beta in the iPhone 5 version.
Siri refused to comment on the pending litigation.
