Siri outages being reported around the country

Siri outages being reported around the country
As first reported by, there are a tremendous amount of reports of Siri outages surfacing on Twitter. Some users have reported extreme latency while others have stated they are not able to use the service at all.

Siri, Apple’s voice assistant, relies on a connection to Apple’s servers to process requests from users. Currently when a user make a request, most are receiving a response of “Sorry, I’m having trouble connecting to the network.

An outage is not completely outrageous considering Siri is still in beta, however, with Apple positioning it as a cornerstone feature of the iPhone 4S, many users will be disappointed that it is unavailable.

There is currently no official word from Apple in regards to an outage or an estimated recovery time.

I'm 100% positive that you're not even black. You're here trying to start shiit. Ignorant bastard.

I agree...being Black myself, I've noticed 13 to 22-year-old white men tend to think they are black because they listen to rap music, but have never gone into a black community, even good ones.

I think Siri is actually made by HTC - it's 'quietly brilliant'.

Iphone 4 owners can now even more easily fool their equally brainless chums that they also own a iphone 4s,all while other more aware smartphone owners look on pointing and laughing at them both having faulty apple phones.

Siri never had these kinds of problems when it was just an app. What the heck is Apple doing?

I don't think the app used Apple's servers

"Hi Siri, can you please shut down your service?" "I sure can" "...Hello?"

A wikipedia timeline: 2010 apple release a faulty iphone 4 plagued with problems,thousands of idiots buy it. 2011 Apple release the same phone again just rename it with an s and use mental pr techniques to fool the susceptible that its a new phone by having a revolutionary 'new' feature of 'siri' voice activations which was previously available on their app store for months and on rival os platforms for over a year. 2011: Several days after the release of this same iphone complaints flood in of poor battery,yellow screens,echo speaker calls and the siri ploy fails to work. 2011: a week after complaints thousands of idiots read all the faults and still hand their teenage money over for the phone in a zombie fashion

Seeing as apple idiots call anyone who is mentally aware enough to see all the faults of apple and its products trolls maybe you'd like this:

if apple cant handle a few millions than imagine when they have 30+ million people using siri...i guess people are dissing apple because apple fans always claim apple are perfect and can do know wrong etc so when things do go wrong they should not be surprised by the trolling.

HA SIRI IS DEAD! and who cares anyway. once people buy the phone and have fun with siri for 30 minutes and show people siri, they prolly never use it again. they have fun asking it things like "where can i hide dead bodies?" or "nearest whorehouse" but then once the NOVELTY wears off, they never use it again. siri = barcode scanner. fun... impressive... but never used after the initial fun wears away.

And the list grows on all the faults on the iphones 4s. Apple is getting farther and farther away from perfection. As a matter of fact it is beginning to look like some android handsets that come with a handfuls of issues.

I would honestly have any of these small problems that get fixed quickly rather than any crap fragmented barely working non updaded crappy app store android. Comes from a nexus s owner.

Barely working... non updated... you do realize that your Nexus is first in line for updates, and will get ICS? You also do realize that there are many high quality Android phones that work well, right? Also, you do realize that the two most recent versions of Android make up the significant majority of Android phones in use, right?

Well, I guess today just isn't Apple's day. However, Android has had those days too. Apple is allowed to not be perfect. I just hope their users and the company remembers that.

Wait, Apple says Siri is beta? Ah hellz nah. You ship it, it isn't beta. You stand on a stage and hawk your wares based on a product feature, it isn't beta. Sorry, excuse fail. Companies ship crappy products all the time. Apple isn't immune from that possibility, nor does their legendary past quality control make their current screw-ups go away. It's hard to argue that sixteen months isn't enough time to iron out the bugs in your product. It seems to me that something happened that forced their plans to change late the in game and the 4S was a cobbled-together compromise.
