On-Device Siri Suggestions
With the recent Siri privacy debacle, many users are probably eyeing the Apple digital assistant with a bit more suspicion than before. How does Siri, for example, offer suggestions or other data without compromising Apple’s privacy stance?
Easy: it doesn’t send any of that data to Apple’s servers. Apple notes that when users ask Siri to read Messages or Notes, none of that data ever leaves their device. The same goes for certain suggestions in Safari and Maps. What about those suggestions in the QuickType keyboard? Well, those are also processed purely on your device.
