iPhone's Siri can double data bills?
While Apple's Siri voice assistant doobrey seems like a fun, futuristic thing to horse around with, it's been suggested that it's actually hammering you for cash. Apparently, using Siri doubles the amount of information that iPhone users use, if you believe the researchers of Arieso (yes, it looks vaguely like a naughty word).
Researchers found that users of the new iPhone 4S were using twice as much data as those who had an iPhone 4. Of course, the major difference between the two is that Siri exists on one of them, and whenever you use it, your phone connects to the internet, which of course, uses data.
Naturally, if you end up going over your data limit, your provider will sting you in your bill or even cut your phone off.
Arieso's research says that; 'Users of the iPhone 4S demand three times as much data as iPhone 3G users and twice as much as iPhone 4 users.'
They added; 'The most significant change has been the introduction of the iPhone 4S. There are some very hungry handset users.'
You've be warned, not that you actually care.
