Can't use the A6 excuse now on this forum though.
Surely 6.1 should have Siri on Ipad 2?
Ideally it would, but I think Apple is more interested in pushing people to upgrade.
Has Apple ever used the chipset as excuse for non-Siri iDevices?
But I can use the actual excuse of only one microphone where as the mini has two.
I'm sure the Ipod touch 4 has A4 so the ipad 2 has no reason for no Siri.
who cares? Siri is a waste of time, I realized when they added it to the new ipad how I didn't care at all and will never use it. I am sure many other people feel the same way.
The iPad 2 never had siri? I would have assumed it did, solely based on the fact that the iPhone 4S does (A5, 512MB).
Lots of people use it all the time. I use it to set alarms and timers. Dictation is also extremely useful at times (not sure if iPad 2 has dictation).
I have Ipad 3 but I bet alot of people will be asking WHY no Siri with IOS6? Seems there was no reason to leave this feature out.
This thread ended with it's first two words.
Are you implying the 4th gen iPod touch has Siri? Because it doesn't.
I'm saying the Ipod touch 4th can't get Siri > A4 processor
Ipad 2 CAN it has A5 like Ipad mini
Decrease in performance in iPad mini ?
Should there not be a decrease in performance, having the same A5 processor but taking care of the higher resolutions of both cameras, the higher pixel density but with a smaller battery? Even if the screen is smaller?
Would they retrofit the iPad2 to have Siri with an update?
Why would they not let the iPad2 have Siri then?
A business decision instead of a technical one?
As Siri would only be used as one task (no proper multi tasking on IOS) I fail to see the issue really..
Siri uses the a newer proximity sensor that's only on the 4S, ipad3, and newer devices. The iPad 2 doesn't have this.
Only iPhone's have proximity sensors.
Two different opinions here then..
So which is true.
And we need a final conclusion is it software or Business reasons?
One isn't an opinion. I'll let you guess which isn't.
PS: It's the one made by the person whose name is really, really close to my own.
Which is the only logical option.
Why on Earth would a Tablet/iPad need a proximity sensor for?
On the other side I believe 90% of phones , and 100% of smartphones today do have a proximity sensor which is needed for screen brightness, loudspeaker activation, noise cancelling and many other options.
Siri has nothing to do with this. Just look at Apples' own advertising on Siri, people talk to Siri by facing the phone, and not putting it as they would for a phone call. Ergo, no proximity sensing needed for a function that requires to actively touch a button and listen to the loudspeaker.

I jail broke my iPod touch 4g and put Siri on it. It works perfectly. The processor was never the issue. Siri more or less runs of the Apple Cloud Siri server. The reason I believe they never put it on old devices was either an attempt to get you to upgrade or they wanted to limit the number of devices hitting the Siri servers (which has been an issue).
