It seems like iOS 5.01 update did not help much in solving iPhone 4S battery issue. Although more than 40% said that iOS update fix their battery problem but for some the situation is even worse. Apple who is seriously concerned about the issue, release the iOS update iOS 5.01, but they are working hard to give a proper solution to the iPhone users.
Some analyst reported different views on this iOS update.
Michael Gartenberg said, “I’m not seeing an issue myself, except there are more features I use on a regular basis which do affect battery life. As with all devices, what features you use extensively will affect battery life.” (more…)
Siri is an intelligent personal assistant that helps you in acquiring information or doing things just by asking. When a user get familiarized with Siri, it will work better by collecting data from your contacts, calendars, music library, reminders and Apple’s data centers to give the users quick response.
But Siri don’t work always the same way as you expect. Like if you ask some weird questions or casual/slang language or something that is not relevant it may return answers differently. To some users what siri says differently is, funny, annoying and even unexpected.

Here’s the easy way on how to use SIRI to understand what you want it/she/he to do for you. It’s highly customize able but it does take a little bit of time to use it. I found a few tricks and tips that might help you figure out how to use SIRI.
SIRI is the new built in personal assistant voice command software in all Apple’s iPhone 4S. It’s not exactly software or an application like you can download and install. It doesn’t even have an icon, plus it’s only accessible on iPhone 4S. Some other sites say you can port it (copy it) to older iPhone but you can’t. SIRI can’t work unless it has an iPhone 4S or higher.
Setting Up Siri:
The first thing you have to do with SIRI is add your name, if you want it to address you by name, and the language you want to speak, or rather listen to. Go to Settings>General>SIRI>My Info
Choose your name from the contact list and SIRI will address you by name. Choose the language you want to use and you’re all set. You can make other changes in the area too. They are very self-explanatory, so you won’t need step-by-step directions.
Tips on How to Use SIRI:
From far, far away – You can use SIRI by two different ways. If it’s across the room, on the dashboard of your car, or sitting on the table at home, press the home button. Hold it until there are two quick beeps. A microphone should appear on the screen. Start talking. That’s it! Pretty easy, huh? Just check to see if the microphone is on the screen and SIRI is ready for you to start talking and giving orders. You don’t even need to yell or hold it close to your mouth. (more…)
