Believe it or not, the Crab until today did not give the guys in Portugal And we thought she was slow to get here. A clue found on the company's Portuguese website by All Things AppleHowever, it may indicate that the assistant is packed for the land of our friends across the Atlantic.
The images above are from the feature pages of the new AirPods in Portugal and Brazil, respectively. Do you notice any difference? Note that while the Brazilian page mentions our already well-known “E a Siri” command as one of the features of the new headphones, its Portuguese counterpart cites the same functionality, but with another phrase: “Hey Siri”.
This, of course, raises suspicion. The phrase "Hey Siri" is not used as a standard command to evoke the wizard anywhere, lusfono or not. Apple of Portugal, therefore, would have no reason to simply “invent” the phrase out of nowhere, which may indicate that Siri is really coming to the country.
This statement, however, can only be seen as speculation, even at least until Ma officially announces something. Fortunately, there is no shortage of dates for this to happen in the near future, either at next Monday's event or (looking a little further) at the upcoming WWDC. To be?
