iOS 6: Video Shows Siri For iPad In ActionBy: Shaylin Clark - June 18, 2012
One of the big stories from last week’s WWDC 2012 Apple keynote was iOS 6. The newest version of Apple’s mobile operating system comes with a slew of new features, many of them requested by users over the last couple of years. New features in iOS 6 include an overhauled (and Google-less) Maps app, Facebook integration, improvements to Siri, better privacy settings, and more.
One remarkable bit of news is that Siri would finally be making the jump to a device other than the iPhone 4S. When iOS 6 launches alongside the new iPhone this fall, owners of the new iPad will be getting Siri as well. While older iPads will be left out, the fact that Siri is getting spread around even a little is very promising.
While iOS 6 won’t be out until the fall, the beta version of the software has been out since last week, allowing us to get a sneak peek at some of the new goodies coming with the update. Over the weekend, the folks at iJailbreak uploaded their own hands-on video of Siri running on the new iPad. Check out the video for yourself below:
