Apple’s new voice-recognition app for the iPhone 4S, better known as Siri, made its first commercial debut last night, proving the new iPhone is more than just a smartphone.
Although, according to security firm Sophos, Siri can be activated even on an iPhone 4S that has been password-protected.
The voice-recognition app was reportedly designed to provide easy access to any random question your mind can dream up, but is the new digital best pal also a security threat?
Siri is one of Apple's top new features on the iPhone 4S, which adapts to the user's individual preferences over time and personalizes results, as well as tasks such as making dinner reservations.
Apple engineered the iPhone 4S to be a world phone, enabling the company to manufacture one device that can be used with GSM carriers using micro-SIM cards worldwide, according to reports.
Now, Apple is starting to reap the fruit of that decision: the company will be rolling out the iPhone 4S in 22 additional countries by the end of the month, and pre-orders are now available in online stores for the new markets.
Depending on the country, Apple is listing availability time for purchases from one to two weeks.
According to the company, new countries getting the iPhone 4S are Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.
