Many were wondering whether Apple would bring Siri to devices other than iPhone 4S. Well, sadly, we can now confirm that Apple is not going to get this feature for other devices.
An Apple user contacted Apple regarding a special iOS firmware, the one that was released for developers (iOS 5.0.1) that would allow people to buy Siri for $19.99. Apple responded to that mentioning, that they have no plans for getting Siri for other devices.
Here is what the user sent to Apple
Bug Title: Special Siri Build of iOS
iPhone 4 Users and iPod touch 4th generation users pay a fee of 19.99 to upgrade to a ‘special’ build of iOS 5.0.1 with Siri Final in it, (To avoid hackers hacking Siri onto non 4S devices illegally) **Many iPhone 4 Users and iPod touch 4th generation Users will pay for this special iOS build (5.0.1) which will enable Siri for a fee of $19.99 US dollars
Apple replied saying
Engineering has provided the following feedback regarding this issue:
Siri only works on iPhone 4S and we currently have no plans to support older devices.
If you look at the word “currently”, it means that for now Apple will not support Siri to older devices but that does not mean that Siri won’t be coming in the future.
