Siri Might Finally Hit the iPad in iOS 6

Illustration for article titled Siri Might Finally Hit the iPad in iOS 6

9to5Mac is reporting that Siri is finally coming to the iPad in iOS 6. Yep, Siri, in all her helpful, assistant-like ways (and sailor cursing, sexual tendencies too!) on the big screen. What's interesting though, is that Siri is going to look different.


9to5Mac's sources say that Siri won't need to hog the entire screen of the iPad (like it does on the iPhone), instead, it'll act more like how Notifications Center works on the iPad. Siri's interface is supposed to "built into the iPad as a small window on top of whatever interface the user is currently interacting with. The Siri window with rounded corners sits at the bottom center of the display". As Notifications Center is a drop down banner on the iPad, Siri on the iPad is expected be a drag up sliding screen. You can trigger Siri by holding the home button, just like on the iPhone 4S.


As of now, Siri is expected to only be available on the new iPad (though it's being tested on the old iPad 2 too). If Siri does finally come to the iPad though, let's hope it's better than what it currently is. We'll find out for sure at WWDC. [9to5Mac]

A lot of people hate on Siri (totally understandable considering the way it's marketed), but it's great for the one thing I use it for - sending text messages while driving.
