According to the New York Times, company's engineers, including those who work in the division responsible for Siri's voice assistant, conduct regular testing of "generative language concepts." The same holds for Amazon Alexa and the Google voice assistant.
Former Apple engineer John Burke said the company's voice assistant is developing very slowly due to "clumsy code," which prevents even minor enhancements from being implemented. When adding new features or entire phrases, the entire base had to be rebuilt, which took up to six weeks.
Apple's current Siri-based chat bot isn't specified by the publication, although the company's competitors in the face of Google and Microsoft are now implementing AI technologies. These include prompts when entering text on the on-screen keyboard, face unlock devices, and a karaoke function in Apple Music.
