Report: iOS 6 to Deliver Siri to iPad
Is Siri just weeks away from arriving on the iPad?
According to a new report published Monday, the answer is yes. As we know, the popular voice recognition software debuted last fall with the release of the iPhone 4S (with "S" representing Siri). But with the exception of the voice dictation feature hitting the new iPad earlier this year, Siri hasn't truly arrived in full on the hottest tablet in town.
But if sources in the know are correct in their latest information leak, the revelation of iOS 6 at Apple's WWDC next week will change all of that. At least that's the news out of our friends at 9to5Mac who spilled the beans this morning on their newly acquired morsel of information.
"Apple has been testing iOS 6′s Siri for iPad feature on both the current generation iPad (third generation), and last year’s iPad 2," the report reads. "It is unconfirmed, however, if Siri for iPad will actually launch as an exclusive to the latest Retina Display model, but multiple sources say that this is likely the case."
As of this writing, it isn't believed that WWDC will provide a stage for new Apple product releases. Analogous to last year's event, WWDC 2012 will be all about software and the performance improvements delivered to current and future Apple hardware.
