An investment company, Mangrove, in its report called Voice Tech 2019 has predicted that Apple may announce its SiriOS at the WWDC next year. The report is mainly concerned with many voice-based technologies in their current state and tries to predict what those companies might do with their technology in the upcoming years.
So far, Mangrove has predicted that the number of voice-based technologies would increase in the future, and as a result, becoming extremely popular in the coming decade. With the already booming business of voice-based technology, the report assumes that the users prefer to rely on voice commands for smart devices, rather than manually controlling them.
One of the main reasons for this, as cited by the report itself, is that using voice is “far more natural, convenient and efficient” than using, say, a keyboard. Many companies are already using their voice-based technology to lure in customers and they have succeeded so far. If a company like Apple, too, follows the same path, the growth of this business will increase exponentially.
Following this data, Mangrove has predicted the arrival of SiriOS which, as the name suggests, will be, if it ever materializes, a platform dedicated to Siri digital assistant. However, this is only a prediction made by Mangrove and until Apple releases an official statement stating the existence and arrival of the SiriOS, this prediction should be treated just as a prediction, and nothing more.
Siri is, without a doubt, a notch inferior to other assistants available today on the market, such as Amazon’s Alexa or Google Assistant because of all restrictions put on Siri. If Siri is to get a platform of its own, many of its restrictions would gradually be removed giving Siri the space to perform more and with equal diligence, if not more. No matter how good the SiriOS sounds until Apple releases an official statement regarding this, SiriOS would only be a part of a prediction and nothing more.
