Siri Announced for New iPad with iOS 6
[ Business]

As expected, one of the perks that will be bundled up in the just-announced iOS 6 will be the inclusion of everybody’s favorite semi-sentient voice-commanded digital assistant, Siri, to the New iPad.

Scott Forstall, speaking at Apple’s annual World Wide Developers Conference today, listed a bevy of new updates that Siri will be receiving, such as support for many new languages as well as an intelligence-boost. Siri will also be able to launch apps and has a deeper integration with services like Foursquare and Yelp.

The New iPad, the third generation of Apple’s tablet family, will be the only one receiving the addition of Siri with iOS 6. However, given that the iPad 2 is running on an A5 chip that’s similar to the iPhone 4S, the latter being where Siri made its original debut, it’s a little confusing as to why the iPad 2 wouldn’t be getting the Siri-ness. Maybe that’s something that Apple has planned for a future date, or maybe it’s just the company’s clever way of enticing people to upgrade to the New iPad. Either way, the New iPad is your first and, for now, only Apple tablet equipped with Siri.
