I don't know how long this one will last but right now Siri can reboot iPhone by saying "restart" if you are at the springboard. I have timed compared to a manual reboot and it is noticeably faster so it is apparently a respring not complete reboot.

Pretty kewl!

OK Siri teased me with "reboot." lol

Me: Reboot
Siri: Thinking...
Siri: One moment...
Siri: I'll be right with you...
Siri: Sorry, Michael, I couldn't do it. Could you try it again, please?

So I think she understood what I wanted to do but just can't do the reboot. If I word it like "reboot iPhone" she just says she does not understand.

Siri's voice dictation is in beta, not Siri on the whole.
I'm rather certain it is Siri that is in beta.

The voice recognition part is from Nuance, makers of Dragon Dictate et all, and I don't think that part is in beta. It's the AI and overall aspect of what Siri can understand, and act on, that is in beta.

Because thats what Apple said during the Keynote, that Siri was still a beta.

It has been said by many many people on this site....usually when someone says anything even remotely negative about Siri or mentions that it got something wrong or it couldn't do something they wanted it to do or generally any statement that isn't "Siri is the greatest thing since the invention of air."....that Sir is beta and it will only get better.

Either that or it's from the Apple Website that says.....and I quote:

Siri is currently in beta and we’ll continue to improve it over time.
