Apple's virtual helper might soon appear in additional types of hardware from the tech giant, with snippets of code found within the iOS 7.1 SDK suggesting that a version of Siri for Apple TV may be in the works.

The discovery hinges around the device identifier "3" that's been found inside the Assistant call code in iOS 7.1 and 7.1.1. That particular UIDeviceFamily reference number refers to Apple TV throughout Apple's software, a fact that men who analyze stuff agree means Siri will soon start offering to search for TV content on our behalf. Fingers very firmly crossed. [9to5Mac]
