Siri coming to iPhone 4 and 3GS?

Date Added 09/11/2011

Rumours have been spreading over the internet about Apples plans for Siri. Hackers have already managed to run Siri on other iDevices such as the iPhone 4 and even the iPhone 3GS.

One source, who filed a bug report to Apple also suggested Apple make Siri available on other iOS 5 devices. Apple’s response was:

"Siri only works on iPhone 4S and we currently have no plans to support older devices."

Recent reports however do suggest that Apple have been testing their voice activation software on the iPhone 4. Here at the spot we have been looking at reasons why Apple may well release Siri on to their current range of iDevices.

For starters, we all know that the key selling point to Apples latest device (the iPhone 4S) has been the introduction of Siri. However, let’s not forget, the iPhone 4S has a lot more to offer.

The Battery and camera have been vastly improved so if you’re a businessman constantly on the move or photography enthusiast that does not want to carry both a phone and a digital camera, these are key issues to consider when deciding weather to purchase an iPhone 4 or the iPhone 4S.

The dual-core A5 processor is more powerful than that of the iPhone 4. A faster more powerful processor means more apps, which would only be capable of running on the iPhone 4S.

With Apple becoming an increasing influence on the games industry with releases such as Rockstars classic Grand Theft Auto 3 already announced for the device, Apple could easily push the iPhone 4S as not only a powerful business tool but also as the next generation of handheld gaming device.

Apple may also consider running Siri on devices due to their on going battle with Google. It’s no secret that Apple and Google are not the best of friends with the two constantly battling to secure more users to iOS and Android. Steve Jobs himself once stated that he was ‘willing to go to thermonuclear war’ on their rivals.

With Apple purchasing mapping from C3 Technologies, it’s safe to assume that they are indeed working on their own map service to replace Google maps.

As for Siri, Eric Schmidt (Google Executive Chairman) has himself admitted that it poses a ‘significant’ threat to Google with recent studies suggesting iPhone 4S users have been using Siri to find information instead of the search engine giant.

Either way, Siri is still in its beta stages so if Apple was to release it to other devices, we don’t expect it will be any time soon. However, when it comes to Apple, expect the unexpected.
