iPhone 5S has been very much in demand this holiday season. It has not been without issues. People are already talking about Touch ID degradation and other issues. Nevertheless, millions of people have already gotten their hands on this device. Naturally, the shipping time is coming down as we get closer to 2014. As the folks at MacRumors point out, you can now get an iPhone 5S in 1 to 3 days.
This does not necessarily mean that demand for these new phones is going down. Apple has ramped its iPhone 5s production over the past few weeks. Still, if you want to have an iPhone, iPad Air, or iPad mini before Christmas, you should consider ordering soon.
Apple has grand plans for Siri. It might be a fun digital assistant to use at this time. But the company is looking to further improve it in the coming years. Its latest patent application for a “smart dock for activating a voice recognition mode of” iPhone suggests Apple is working on a device that will always be listening to iPhone users to activate Siri commands at any time. When will we see this product? That is anybody’s guess right now.[via]
