Siri begins to teach Russian language

Siri на русском

We all look forward to when the obstinate Siri finally speak the language of Pushkin and Dostoevsky. Today in iOS 7 we have noticed an interesting detail, which may indicate that the Cupertino still working in this direction.

In most cases, the name of the user who owns the device is listed in the list of contacts in Russian. In older versions of iOS, if you ask Siri a question «What’s my name», the name appears on the screen, but in response to the digital voice assistant, it is simply skipped. In iOS 7, there have been some changes.

Now Siri is able to pronounce the names in Russian, although the rumor is difficult to make out what she said. Despite the fact that it can hardly be called a major innovation, the fact that the electronic assistant is beginning to understand the Cyrillic characters, indicates that Apple is still involved in the localization of Siri for the Russian market.

It is possible that the final version of iOS 7, we get what waited for so long. Still, Russia – one of the largest markets for Apple, and for a long time to ignore it just will not work.
