Siri coming to iPad 2

The most exciting feature of the Apple iPhone 4S at the moment is Siri, the virtual assistant. As it is supported only in iOS 5 at the moment, the hope is that it will be coming to the iPad and iPad 2 soon. Hackers have been even able to import Siri to the iPhone 4. Now, it’s the iPad 2′s turn to get the famous virtual assistant – Siri.

Developers have also ported Siri on the first generation jailbroken iPad, but it is facing some connectivity problems. The virtual assistant is unable to connect to Apple Servers in many cases. Developers are continuously trying to solve this problem.

With the upcoming thrill and increasing excitement for Siri, it is obvious that the iPad 2 will get it too very soon.

Let’s take a look at what Siri does and why it is so discussed!

Siri was introduced in iOS 5 on the Apple iPhone 4S. It is the most important distinction between the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S. It is capable of doing anything from setting up reminders to opening up your bookmarks in the web browser, just with simple voice commands.

The assumptions are that Apple will shortly release an iOS 5 update that will enable the iPad 2 and iPhone 4 to run Siri officially.

The question now is whether developers can successfully port Siri to the jailbroken iPad 2 first or if Apple will release a patch for other iOS 5 devices before that happens.
