chasm said:I do see the "I'll tap you when I'm ready" message from time to time (maybe once in 50, certainly not the problem you're having), but let me tell you what the problem is and a potential fix.
The reason for the difficulty is that your iPhone is trying or has connected to a non-working open Wi-Fi connection, and can't reach the internet to process some aspects of your request. The fix is to go into your iPhone settings -> Wi-Fi, and tell it to ask to connect to unknown networks (known networks will still be joined automatically). If there's a notoriously bad "known" network you've joined before that doesn't work (I have this problem in some parts of town with the carrier's hotspots), tell the iPhone to "forget" that network. This will cause your iPhone to rely on LTE data when you're not on a known-good Wi-Fi network, and thus the connection between your iPhone and the Watch will be stronger and thus Siri will work much more reliably. It made a huge difference for me, I hope it does the same for you.
Regarding pronunciation ... I agree that there could be more done in the area of fixing bad pronunciations, there is a way to correct names, here is the method I use to train it from scratch:
1. Ask Siri for the phone number of the name you know it will mispronounce.
2. After it says the name incorrectly aloud, say "that's not how you pronounce it."
It will then ask you to say the name, listen, and offer you choices of pronunciation. Select the one that is closest, and then it will pronouce it correctly next time.
The cost of lies...

For them to demand (and expect) a 5% "royalty" based on the price of my product, especially if their chip only constitutes a small percentage of the entire device is worthy of an episode in "Narcos".So if I put that chip in a piece-of-s**t $50 plastic Android phone, they get $2.50 and if I put that same chip in a $1,500 iPhone that's actually built well and performs better, and those improvements have absolutely nothing to do with Qualcomm, they expect $75? F**k that!!Qualcomm's dirty laundry is coming out in baskets. With all this negative news coming out about Qualcomm and their gestapo tactics, they will be begging Apple to quickly settle and save face. I'm glad that Apple is taking this standing up and teaching a lesson to Qualcomm. I hope Mollenkopf gets fired, no golden parachute, and ends up mopping floors. He's everything that's wrong in the industry.
Typically when you machine/hog out aluminum from a single surface, you will get a potato chip when you pull the part from the machine (the stress locked in place by the calendar-rolling process in the mill is now released). To counter this, there’s typically a skim cut done on the opposite surface. I presume this 7000 series aluminum is all being machined in a tempered condition.
Something is likely occurring down the line, and my guess would be this is limited to a small batch of units.
If affected return to Apple, let them trace it back through the fabrication process to the source, if it hasn’t already been corrected.
