    Seems useless to me.

    Any device that could run iOS 5 and Siri legally approved by Apple, will be able to run the new Siri on iOS 6.

    I'd rather see resources in the direction of jailbreaking iOS 6 on the newer hardware.

    Why wouldn't it?

    Isn't Siri all handled server-side anyway?

    If they upgraded Siri server-side, they would have to intentionally BLOCK older iOS versions from using it.

    But then, that would mean they'd have to keep providing the iOS 5 version of Siri on a separate server to maintain it's functionality for the non-upgraders - which seems like a big waste of money on Apple's end.

    However,, there's no Siri on the iPad 2, which uses essentially the same Hardware as the 4S, so I guess Apple is not above bully-marketing tactics with their own customers...

    EDIT - I was just thinking that iOS6 may add new "strings" for Siri to access apps and other phone features that don't exist in iOS 5. I mean, you could probably get all the newer web-browsing features, like more specific sports-related web queries and the like, but as for app-launching and other iOS-based commands, you might actually need to upgrade to iOS 6 to get that newer functionality out of Siri.

    Who knows..

    Canadian Eh!

    I am interested in this as well, currently jailbroken on 5.1.1 I don;t really want to lose that, but I hope that Siri will be updated to support the new features for Canada that I've been waiting on forever! :)

    On the other hand, it would make sense if the new features weren't available without an update. I sure hope they don't screw up over though!
