iOS 15 comes with a host of new features and improvements. Apple has made some changes to the Siri under the hood. It has now come to light that Apple has removed selected Siri features used by visually impaired and blind iPhone users. It is not known why the company removed these service functions.
As part of the change, more Siri commands used for basic tasks will no longer be available. Includes commands for phone calls, voicemail, and sending e-mail. Below is a list of commands highlighted on the Applevis forum.
- Do I have voicemail?
- Play my voicemail messages
- Check my call history.
- Check out my recent calls
- Who called me?
- Send an email to [person]
We believe that the above commands are not just for the visually impaired. Anyone could use the commands to avoid picking up the iPhone manually. Oddly, Apple made no mention of feature removal anywhere. IPhone users would be in gross shock when they learn that Apple has removed Siri’s orders.
One of the people I support told me that he can no longer use Siri to send email from his iPhone 8 with iOS 14. I tried on my iPhone SE with iOS 15.0, and Siri’s response was: ” I’m sorry, I can’t help it. ”
I subsequently got the same response on my phone with iOS 12. If it’s a deliberate removal of features, it’s certainly a loss for some visually impaired users who find it a convenient way to send short emails. I know there was a serious mistake when long emails were created in Siri by adding an initial message, but it always worked well for short emails. ”
It is interesting that the Siri commands disappeared not only on iOS 15, but also on iOS 14. One of the users addressed the CEO of Apple. Furthermore, the executive confirmed that some Siri orders were no longer available. Maybe Apple will be added again in the near future.
