When the new iPad came out one o the things it was missing was Siri. It did however, have dictation. Now 9to5Mac is reporting that one of the major features in iOS 6 will be the addition of Siri to the iPad.
Currently Siri is only available on the iPhone 4S, which surprised people who assumed the new iPad would also use it.
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. This Siri window with rounded corners sits at the bottom center of the display, as you can see in our mockup above. The Siri iPad interface takes very little space over the iPad interface currently in use, and is designed with the same linen texture as on the iPhone 4S. Siri for iPad also works from the lock screen.
The report doesn’t mention if Apple will showcase the feature at WWDC, or keep it under wraps until the public release. To close it up, it speculates that Siri for iPad will be exclusive for the new third-generation models.
