Is Siri for the iPhone 4S only, or also for iPhone 4?
I believe 4s only.
"coolest new feature of iPhone 4S..." Would lead me to believe 4S only. Can't find confirmation.
AKA will be on Jailbroken iP4 hahahaha
The existing Siri app is not working now. I hope this is just a temporary glitch and not some underhanded move by Apple to try to get people to buy the 4S for this feature.
LOL I hope so. I think I'll be saving my upgrade for next year now.
Wouldn't surprise me one bit. I hope this phone crashes and burns so we get something worthwhile next year.
Only for 4S - Siri-ously??
Siri was the coolest part of the demonstration and somehow Apple is going to try to get away with a piece of software being one of the defining features of a hardware upgrade? Are you ******* kidding me?
How long until this is hacked on to the iphone 4?
Considering they didn't announce Siri during the iOS 5 presentation and waited until the iPhone 4S end I'm guessing 4S only.
Hopefully not long. Seems like something that should be software specific - not hardware.
yes, I hope it's can be jailbroken on the iPhone 4!
So hope so, this will be the reason to jailbreak.
It'll be jail broken on the 4 within days, don't worry.
It's just a gimmick anyway. People who upgrade from a 4S will try to justify the expense because of Siri, but it really is just a gimmick, a bit like 3D TVs.
Even thought it is software it probably needs the A5 processor to run correctly plus the ram (if it got updated, they never say). If it does turn out to be software and not tied to the hardware ill be pretty mad.
ya not a fan of what was just announced.
I'm on the fence about keeping my 4, or selling it and upgrading for about 300 (i don't like extending my contract)
I guess we'll see
I really doubt the additional processing power is a requirement since there has been a Siri app for a while, this version is just integrated into the OS.
My wife will be happy, I'll spend a little less money than planned on apple products...
Siri only a 4S feature? WOW
can i say,
Now Apple has given the masses a real reason to jailbreak. And after they jailbreak, they may start pirating apps instead of buying them, undermining the platform. Just a terrible decision by Apple to release this spec'd up iPhone. Most people really don't care about specs.
Never been more disappointed for a keynote in years.
I don't think the iPhone 4 is outwith the requirements for Siri, but as with all iPhones there is always one "next gen" feature to sell the new device.
Siri, IF it's baked into iOS 5, will simply be listed in the plist file like everything else. It should be a simple case of either a) opening up the N90.plist and changing the <string>Enable Siri</string> from </false> to </true> b) manually typing the string that enables Siri, found in the N94.plist that will be created in iOS 5 for the 4S, into your N90.plist file, or c) simply obtaining the N94.plist file and renaming it N90.plist and copying it over your existing N90.plist file.
The rumor is that the 4S has 1GB of system memory. Perhaps Siri needs that much memory in order to work?
Considering it has to search for and draw up web pages on the spot, I imagine it requires the power of the 4S
Well.. if you just have 512 mb of memory, it will take some seconds more to recognize speech (to load it from the flash storage), it's not related to memory.
If anything I think the processing power of the A5 could have more to do with Siri than the amount of RAM.
