Apple acquired Siri in 2010, and re-launched it as a built-in feature exclusive to the iPhone 4S in October 2011. The Siri application released with the iPhone 4s has the potential to tremendously influence the way we interact with technology.
People expected that Apple would put in the Siri feature in the new iPad but that somehow didn’t happen. It seems that the Apple doesn’t intend to bring out its voice assistant from the iPhone arena in to the world of iPad or desktop. However, there’s good news for Siri lovers as a new patent application has just come out indicating that you will soon be able to use Siri on your iPhone to control a range of connected devices.There is this particular method that pairs up Siri on your iPhone jacked into a second device and that second device may be your desktop or your notebook computer. According to the Patent Application, the paired device wouldn’t require storage or microphone or even processing power as Siri would be running on Apple’s own servers. It means that you can use Siri on your iPhone to control a range of connected devices.
Can you imagine yourself talking to your TV? Well, the patent application also includes the facility of voice recognition as it makes out the different voices. Another good thing is that the channels are categorized so that you can see whichever channel you want and control the volume and the iTunes content.
