Improving Siri’s Privacy Protections

Apple: instead of using contractors to listen in on your Siri audio recordings, we are going to do it ourselves in-house.

We know that customers have been concerned by recent reports of people listening to audio Siri recordings as part of our Siri quality evaluation process — which we call grading. We heard their concerns, immediately suspended human grading of Siri requests and began a thorough review of our practices and policies. We’ve decided to make some changes to Siri as a result.
