iOS 6 To Introduce Siri For iPad: Detailed Report [Screenshot]

by on June 4th, 2012

Earlier today, we reported on iPhone In Canada regarding some OS X Mountain Lion features that are going to be incorporated in iOS 6. Now, another report by 9to5Mac seems to speculate that iOS 6 will bring full Siri experience on the iPad. According to 9to5Mac‘s trusted sources, iOS 6 will add complete Siri voice assistant to Apple’s tablet platform replacing the Voice Dictation feature. This means that all iPhone 4S Siri features like music playback, iMessaging, Calendar managing, Reminders, Weather, Maps integration, E-mailing, Notes, Contacts searching, Safari integration and Wolfram-Alpha searching will all be present on the iPad as well.

According to the source:

With the iPad being a device that is larger than the iPhone, the product typically sits farther away from the user’s mouth. Because of this, some speculators of Siri for iPad have believed that the device’s microphone would be unable to properly hear, and therefore incorrectly interpret, command inputs. Sources, however, dismissed this as nonsense, and these sources say that commands input with same or similar accuracy to the iPhone 4S. iPad voice dictation appears to work well for third-generation iPad users.

Unlike on the iPhone 4S, Siri for iPad is not a full screen experience. This makes sense given the device’s larger, 9.7-inch display. Siri on the iPad is activated by a quick hold of the home button, just like on the iPhone 4S. The interface slides up from below the display with a clever animation. Siri is built into the iPad as a small window on top of whatever interface the user is currently interacting with.

The report also claims that Siri iPad UI takes very little space over the iPad and is designed with the same linen texture as on the iPhone 4S.
