According to a report Steven Troughton-Smith has made progress on porting the Siri voice assistant to the iPhone 4. The resulting ported version of Siri isn’t ready for prime time so I wouldn’t get to excited just yet and return that iPhone 4S you bought yesterday.
The only problems encountered are due to hardware compatibility issues since according to the report Apple isn’t authenticating commands between Siri on an iPhone 4 and the company’s servers. It is also very slow with a sluggish response while in use because Siri doesn’t support the right GPU driver for the iPhone 4.
The biggest revelation is that Siri will work on the iPhone 4 contrary to what Apple might have alluded too. This isn’t the first time the company has played this kind of game with consumers since we’ve a seen many jailbreaks touting features on older model iPhones that allegedly only work on new models.
Be sure to read the rest of the report yourself for some insight into this interesting project.
