- Apple quietly added a new Siri application to the iOS App Store in August.
- The Siri Speech Study app allows selected users to provide feedback about Siri to Apple.
- The user must be invited by Apple to access the application.
For many years, the Siri digital assistant has been part of Apple’s iPhone and iPad devices. However, even after so long, Siri still cannot recognize the simplest voice commands. It now appears that Apple wants to actively improve Siri. TechCrunch report A special Siri application is now available in the iOS App Store.

The Siri Speech Study app, discovered by the research company Sensor Tower, was first launched on August 9. It is available in many different countries, including the United States. However, the app cannot be found by browsing or searching the iOS Appstore.
When contacting TechCrunch, Apple stated that the app is by invitation only; you can’t just find it and start using it. If you happen to be invited, you will be directed to the app, which is basically just a link to the license agreement and a screen where the user can enter their unique ID number.
The new Siri app will provide these selected users with a way to provide direct feedback to Apple. They will see the list of requests they made to Siri and send feedback on any requests they choose. If a Siri request ends with a wrong command or message, this is the feedback Apple wants to receive. Except for the feedback that the user chooses to send back to Apple, no other information will be collected or sent to the company.
Hopefully, this survey application will allow Apple to finally let Siri keep up. At the same time, iPhone and iPad users may continue to experience problems using Siri for some time to come.
