Before They Put Siri Into the iPad…
People who are avid Apple followers will probably be the first ones to exchange cash for iPad with the
release of the new iPad. True, the new iPad is definitely a lot better than its predecessor, but there are
still some things that need to be addressed. For one, the new iPad you purchase now does not yet
include Siri, who is the famous personal assistant introduced in the iPhone 4S. However, the good news
shared in the recently concluded WWDC 2012, is that it will be included in the iOS 6 update some time
before the year ends. This means that Siri will be coming over to the iPad, to the delight of its users.
When it was introduced in the iPhone 4S, Siri did not have a lot of abilities as it could only reply to
questions asked as well as take a few dictations on the iPhone. However, with iOS 6, a new and very
much improved Siri will be introduced. She will have more information to share, which you will find
helpful in your daily life.
Before the Siri becomes available to the iPad users, Apple should ask around to see what needs to be
done or improved with Siri. Not that what they have already included is not helpful; they might just be
able to get some bright ideas from their long time loyal users as to what is needed to boost Siri’s
One of the improvements could be Siri’s ability to understand the accents of users, as this was a
common problem with the iPhone 4S version. It could also add to the novelty if Siri would have the
ability to give out useful information not just on products and stores but also for the homes.
Siri, despite her cheeky talkativeness, still does not have the ability to read back text to her owner. So,
lazy people who just want to listen to Siri instead of having to read emails and iBooks themselves may
want to have this feature available in the future. This will be a special treat for those who want to enjoy
Siri's voice while listening to the latest book or the newest message they got in the mail. This may not
really be something that would push you to sell your iPad, but since we are on the subject of wishful
Last but not the least, Siri has no access to third-party apps. It is restricted to information from apps of
Apple themselves, such as messaging, email, and calendar. However, wouldn’t it be nice for Siri to
access your Yelp or Twitter account, too? Telling Siri to like a status on Facebook would be great, right?
Now that there are a lot of improvements that will be introduced in the iOS 6, you might want to
exchange cash for iPad now to make sure that you are ready when the time comes to upgrade.
