As it turned out, the company patented this development as early as last year, but the document itself was published only now. According to the patent, the device will measure amplitude and frequency characteristics of an audio input to determine whispers the user. If he says quietly - Siri will also answer in a whisper.
AT Apple is confident that such a feature will be useful in library or office, and also for those who do not wants the attention of strangers. Now the voice assistants either do not recognize the whisper, or at all he does not react.
