So Apple announced Siri along with the iPhone 4S in Oct 2011.

Siri (1.0) included:
-Voice commands
-Dictation
-English, French, German support

Apple announces the new iPad in Mar 2012.

Siri (1.5) included:
-Dictation for iPad (3rd generation)
-Japanese support

Apple announces iOS 6 at WWDC in Jun 2012.

Siri (2.0) includes:
-Siri for iPad (3rd generation)
-Worldwide local search
-Sports
-Movies
-Restaurants
-Launch apps
-Twitter and Facebook
-Eyes Free
-Canadian, Spanish, Italian, Korean, Mandarin, Cantonese support

Since iOS 6 is launching in the fall, most likely when the new iPhone ships, will Apple announce more Siri features during their keynote? Anyone else think that Apple is taking too long to update Siri? If Siri is os and server based, should Apple announce new Siri features and release them without having to put it in major iOS updates?

I doubt they will add any more than they have. However, I do think that they should continually be adding updates to it. Why not? The entire Siri is described as beta. So why not continually add features to it?

Isn't it still technically a beta?

I doubt they will announce new siri features since the features they just announced are only available in BETA until ios6 is released. Down the road sure, but when the 5 launces I doubt new siri features will be available (aside from the ones we just heard about a month ago)

Some of the new features need an iOS update/support also.
They can't be just enabled on the server side.
I suppose they could update Siri alongside minor iOS updates as well... Like when 5.0.1; 5.1; 5.1.1 were released... They could have had small Siri updates with

No one here seems to understand marketing.

"Why would I buy a 4S when I can get an iPhone 4 with Siri?"

"Oh, you can't have Siri on an iPhone 4? Ok, I'll buy the latest and greatest then, please."

It's a marketing ploy, kids. The sooner you understand that, the less painful this will be for all of us.

This update of Siri will probably not be iPhone 5 specific and WILL work on an iPhone 4S because it's already running Siri. It's possible they add a feature that ONLY works on the iPhone 5's technology but that's not likely.

Well said.
If the old iphone has most features the new iphone is getting then why upgrade to it?
