Apple’s Siri: Loved, But Underused

Parks Associates, a research firm, has released the results from its Apple iPhone Siri Users study, which finds that Siri is primarily used to make phone calls and send text messages. The report found that one third of iPhone 4S owners use Siri to make phone calls, send text messages, and search for information.

But those technical issues are not deterring 37 percent of people from wanting Siri in some sort of Apple TV. Parks Associates asked respondents about their interest in the rumored Apple TV, which might include Siri.

Parks Assosciates tells ABC News that the report was based on data from 1,556 respondents with an iPhone and 482 with an iPhone 4S.

Parks found that 51 percent of those surveyed said it would be “extremely important” that their next phone have a Siri-like feature, which should light a fire under the Android and Windows Phone competition.
