It can learn a little from Microsoft’s siri known as Cortana by making this feature sound more like a human than a mere robot.

Having a conversation with a more pleasant and natural Siri for Apple users could lure more potential customers and further establish better customer relations. This increase loyalty levels among the Apple funs. Cortana is quite popular among Microsoft funs and it has humanized this feature. It is not only attractive but more convincing since one can develop the joy of getting a human assist despite the illusion.
