    Did they fix the call dropping bug on W1 yet? If not, I'll pass for now...

    I've been pretty disappointed with Siri so far, and especially use in the car. I used to use an iPod touch until I got my iPhone SE last year. I was so looking forward to, what I assumed would be, a better hands-free experience. Well, I've been left pretty disappointed. With all the danger and talk about distracted driving, and texting and such, I think Apple really let society down. I don't see any reason why Siri or other hands-free options shouldn't work better in the car. My only hunch, is that they've purposely nerf'd it to push Car Play. If that's the case, that's really, really sad (actually, kind of disgusting!). I mean, you can't even answer a phone call, hands-free, for crying out loud! I certainly expected it to be able to do basic stuff, like: - properly route audio - announce who is calling - answer or hang-up a call - resume what was previously being played when the call interrupted How many years old is the iPhone now... and such basic things are missing?
