It looks like Apple is finally confident enough in Siri to call it a finished product. 9to5Mac points out that Apple has at long last removed references to Siri being in beta on its official Siri webpages. Siri has technically been in beta since its launch nearly two years ago and since then Apple has worked to refine the voice-enabled personal assistant to make it faster, more accurate and more consistent. Although Siri was a first of its kind for smartphone platforms when it was released in 2011, it has since gotten stiff competition from Google Now for Android and is expected to get another competitor next year when Microsoft releases its own Cortana personal assistant software for Windows Phone.
