Might Apple be about to release Siri to its iPad users?
It’s a long awaited and anticipated feature, and as Apple gets ready for a big World Wide Developers Conference, 9to5 Mac reports that Apple is working on bringing Siri, the popular voice assistant tool, to iPad users. Currently Siri is only on iPhone 4S.
Come this fall, people will start talking to their iPads. Apple’s breakthrough Siri Assistant, based on an incredible artificial-intelligence system, will no longer be exclusive to users of the popular iPhone 4S. According to trusted sources, one of the tentpole iOS 6 features is Siri support on the iPad. Siri brings all of its iPhone 4S features to the iPad, except for the phone-related commands. Music playback, iMessaging, Calendar managing, Reminders, Weather, Maps integration, E-mailing, Notes, Contacts searching, Safari integration, Wolfram-Alpha searching, and more are all present.
This feature could also bring a touch of controversy as there have been many rumors floating about that Siri for iPad would only work with the latest iPad, the third generation, and not for users of the original iPad and iPad 2, likely because of processing speed issues.
