So a highly trusted little bird told me something interesting about Siri yesterday... this little chirper was talking with someone inside Apple who says that the mic on the iPhone 4S is totally smokin. Like awesome not - like - carcinogenic. This Apple so and so, who’s name I can’t say - partly because that would be uncool and partly because I don’t know it... this Apple so and so says that better mic plus the A5 processor in iPhone 4S are the reasons you’ll not only not get the updated Siri on the iPhone 4 or... you won’t get it on the iPad 2 either.
That doesn’t really explain why the Siri app that has served iPhone 4 and other iOS device owners as well as it has for as long as it has gets the axe this Saturday, though my bird person says Apple is shooting for a top of the line experience with Siri and that requires the A5/new mic combo.
Special thanks to my talking, chirping, ornithological friend... who did not - it turns out - demand a cracker.
