Apple may introduce Siri for iPad when the company unveils the new iOS 6 software, heavily-tipped to arrive at WWDC next month.
The voice-controlled personal assistant is, at present, only available for the iPhone 4S, but Apple may be about to expand her reach, according to reports.
According to TechCrunch there are whispers that a Siri API will also be launched, which would allow third-party developers to start integrating the service directly with their own apps.
The report follows yesterday's revelation that the company could finally put an end to the speculation and launch its own 3D mapping service, finally doing away with Google Maps.
TechCrunch reckons the Siri rumours are one of only a few whispers regarding what Apple has in store for the latest version of its mobile operating system.
MG Siegler write: "There have been whispers backing up Gruber's (Daring Fireball editor Jon Gruber) assertion that Siri APIs are another possibility.
"There have also been whispers about Siri for iPad finally coming. Specifically, I've been led to believe it's more of a UI issue than anything else. After all, Apple is using the technology for the Dictation functionality found on the new iPad. They've just been working on what Siri for iPad will look like, I've been led to believe."
While the company is yet to confirm whether it will indeed launch iOS 6 at WWDC next month, tradition would suggest it will.
