Siri Officially Coming To The iPad In iOS 6, And It Looks Like This [WWDC12]

Following all of the Siri enhancements for the iPhone on iOS 6 Apple announced today, iPad owners will be pleased to know that the digital assistant is making its way to Apple’s tablet as well. The phone integration will obviously not be there, but all of Siri’s other features will be present, including the new ones in iOS 6.

This compliments the addition of Siri Dictation Apple made with the new iPad back in March. The iPad 2 and third-gen iPad will be supported by Siri in iOS 6, and not the original iPad.

    Not sure why it is for The New iPad only though, Siri does not seem like that much of a resource hog that the iPad 2 could not run it as well.

    HOW ABOUT IPHONE 4? WILL IT BE SUPPORTED WITH SIRI ALSO?

  • Christopher Hengge

    Why wouldn’t the iPhone 4 be able to handle turn by turn navigation?  This is disappointing.
