Recent post on MacRumors shows that a video had surfaced yesterday about the iPhone 4S tested for its capability with a couple of benchmarks. This test includes the new feature “Siri” which was revealed at the launch of “Lets talk iPhone” event at Apple Town Hall in the company’s own campus in Cupertino, California.
It seems that, the people at AppVV got hold of the yet to be released iPhone 4S before its official launch (which is still three days away) and they benchmarked it to compare its performance with other phones. The video they uploaded also shows a setting in Siri – iPhone 4S’ voice recognition feature – called Raise to Speak .
For people who are not familiar with the term ‘Siri’ for them, Siri is a new feature of the iPhone 4S which is a software personal assistant.Which means, Simply by speaking a request in natural language, Siri will perform a task to the best of its ability.
About 57 seconds into this video, you can see a toggle called Raise to Speak under Settings > General > Siri. The Raise to Speak feature will allow you to talk to Siri by simply raising your iPhone 4S to your ear. It also features a powerful 8 megapixel camera that can record video at Full HD 1080p.
