Daniel Jalkut’s HomePod Experience.

I have two iOS devices near me most of the time, my iPhone 7 and my iPad Pro. It's frustrating trying to use "Hey Siri" when both devices are present. Both devices are listening and both will activate. However, Apple has some sort of algorithm that senses this and only one device will actually complete the request. The frustrating part is not knowing which one. I sometimes resort to pushing the home button for Siri activations.

My iPad Pro is not always connected to a wireless network1. It’s frustrating when my iPad Pro responds only for Siri to tell me that the request can’t be completed because the device is not connected to the Internet.

How could Apple solve this problem?

  1. There is public Wi-Fi available at work but the network drops unused connections after 15 minutes.
