If report comes straight from 9to5Mac holds true, Apple’s iPad will be the next in the firm’s current product line-up to gain support for Siri by way of iOS 6.
The report further states, via their trusted sources, that Siri is being tested on both the new iPad and the iPad 2, although it may only be supported for the newer model. While clearly missing the phone features, the other features will be the same, including music playback, iMessaging, calendar assistance, Reminders integration, weather, Maps integration, and web search.
Unlike the iPhone, the Siri for iPad will be limited to a small pop-up window, while it can be accessed by pressing the home button – a mock up has been designed of what it could potentially look like (image above).
