Why can’t we rename Siri so that each device we have is unique? You can designate words or phrases to activate shortcuts for different apps? Why not for Siri itself? If the user could activate Siri with something like, “Hey, iPhone” or “Hey, iPad” or “Hey, Stupid” (for talking to my iPhone), or “Hey, (you fill in the blank)”. Right now I have a Watch, an iPad, an iPhone and an iMac, all within shouting distance. I have Hey Siri on the iPhone and activate Siri by pressing the crown. But, no way to use it on the iPad or iMac.
Besides making it easier for the users, podcasters would not have to tread on eggshells when they are talking about Siri. I heard one the other day who had to bleep out a section because he used the magic words and probably would have set off 100,000 Apple devices had he not. As it was, he apologized to his live audience for doing it.
There must be a reason for not doing such a simple thing. Could it be accomplished, at least on iOS, by using shortcuts to activate Siri by unique words?
