Apple’s intelligent personal assistant Siri, which is exclusively available on the iPhone 4S right now, will reportedly arrive on the Cupertino-based company’s latest iPad tablet this fall. When the new iPad launched this past March it featured Voice Dictation, but lacked the full Siri experience. According to 9To5Mac, Siri for iPad will bring all of the features found on the iPhone 4S, except the phone-related commands for obvious reasons, to Apple’s tablet. Even though tablets tend to be positioned further away from a user’s mouth, Siri on the iPad is said to have “similar accuracy to the iPhone 4S.” Unlike the iPhone version, however, Siri for iPad will not be a full screen experience due to the tablet’s larger 9.7-inch display. The iPad version will instead open in a small window on top of whichever program the user has open. Apple is expected to unveil iOS 6 at its Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco on June 11th, although it is unclear if Siri for iPad will be included in the announcement. A mockup of Siri for iPad in use follows below.
