Siri Assistant isn’t new. The app officially launched in the App Store back in 2010. Shortly after that, Apple bought the company behind it, but kept the app alive in the App Store. But with integration of Siri into the iPhone 4S, what will happen to the app?

Well, it will go away. The app has already been pulled from the App Store, and a goodbye message appears when you launch the app now…

“I’ve been replaced! The new Siri is even smarter and better-looking than me, and waiting for you on the iPhone 4S. I’ll be leaving for home Oct 15th.”

As of October 15th, the app will be no more. Obviously, Siri is a big deal for Apple and they don’t want to keep supporting an app that uses old technology. This is also a nice way for Apple to say, “Hey, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to buy that new iPhone 4S.”

Did you use the Siri app? How does this shut down affect you?

  • Dirk

    Haven’t used it… Didn’t know it was still available. Dragon Go does most of my searches these days tho…

  • Ken

    I have iPhone 4 and have siri app on my phone.
    Should I need to buy iPhone 4S if I want to use siri to work?

    • An earlier article said that Siri will be ported over to iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4. So unless u want to buy the new iPhone, I would just wait

      • Me

        It actually said that devs were looking to see if it was possible. They thought it might just be a plist change that needed doing, but it turned out it wasn’t. They still weren’t sure whether the iPhone 4 can handle it.

    • John

      Please send it to me!! I would love to have it and can’t get the app or the 4S when it does come out.

  • joshsk82001

    I’ve had the app for a long time never really used it that much cause it dont talk back to you. But if you tell siri that your drunk he says would you like me to call a cab sir. Thought that was pretty cool

  • Alex

    I’ll miss you Siri original the new one can suck one we’ll always remember you<3

  • CLOZER

    I bought this app last year and have been using it a long time. Now when I launch the app it does’t work anymore. I feel robbed and cheated where’s my refund!!! Nexus prime is launching next week!!!

    • Julie

      I feel just as Clozer does and it annoys me. I didn’t know it was being diabled until my friend was showing off her new phone and the cool Siri application that is standard on it. I said, “oh I have that too, here, I’ll show you”, but the joke was on me when I discovered it didn’t work anymore.

    huh, the funny thing is that the andriod phones have had most of this tech built in for a few years now. And the galaxy s2 i was playing with yesturday worked fantastic when using voice controls. Sorry, Apple, your just a little late on that one.

    • Tim Cook

      Pretty sure Android does’t talk back to you

    • Dusean

      Dumbass that voice command, I’m sure when u say to your shitty droid , ” I’ve just been assaulted” it’ll respond “do you want me to call 911” , that shitty droid is going to do a google search on the origins of fighting , that’s if it don’t mistake you saying “I want hot sauce”

    for those who think Siri is so impressive you can see that Samsung galxy S2 already have that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=SboLTJcY9ao

    Apple, are you ever going to show the world something innovative or you will just continue to copy what others bring first?

    • Apple freak

      Hey this app is sluggish.
      Are to talking about innovation?
      Apple copies some ideas ( I don’t deny that) but they fully enhance it with great new features with great style….
      Android looks so cheap………
      If android copies any ideas but the don’t upgrade it they keep as it is.
      Haha

    ok for all those who think that apple is just a company that copies others you are sadly mistaken! apple has always been the leader in GUI and coming up with new stuff…. Apple designed the first good LCD flat screen, first to change the GUI to something that isnt plain and gray, and has always been equal to pc in hardware capabilities until last year when the got ahold of the intel chipset when the surpassed pc in everyway! apple was the first with heatpad touch pad multi geasture touch screens for mobile devices, actually made a standard pc style mobile internet browser and they listen to what the people want! apple rulez!

    Since Siri has been pulled off the App Store, does anyone have a link to download the Siri .IPA?
    Thanx!

  • Peter B

    I am disappointed that Apple “pulled” Siri from my iPhone 4. I used it now and then, and when search for it to load on my wife’s iPad I couldn’t find it… A very lame move on Apple’s part, to let me install an app and then take it away when a new product uses the technology (iPhone 4S) — requiring an upgrade. One more item to the list of iPhone 5, I mena 4S release disappointments…

  • Apple freak

    Those who think apple copied the idea of voice reognition from android they are wrong….
    It first appeared on iPhone 3Gs ( Voice Control) . I am not saying that apple doesn’t copy the ideas but they do even the androids.
    The immovation of apple is first-class ie: imitation+innovation. But if anyone wants to compare iPhone with android get a life…
    First go and buy it then you will know it better.
    It outclassed all the android products.

    whatttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt TF

  • sikoniko

    love apple idk what you all say i love every product the made ( Steve job R.I.P )

  • Logan

    For those of you who think that apple is innovative are right, but so are the ones who are saying they are copiers. Look at the drop down menu….Droid anyone? Voice control…Droid. The Droids had all this stuff first and it worked amazing. Now Apple is finally getting around to it and are denying some of us the pleasures others have had for years. Screw apple!!

  • Kyle

    Apple is Hands down the best maker of any cellphone,pad, or computer device. Android will never touch Apple NEVER. I dont care if “Droid made it first” What droid needs to do is step up the game cause every thing they do apple does it better!! Droid is The slowest And that goes for everyphone. Dont get me wrong i had a droid “Evo” And i traded my iphone 3gs in for it when it released and i would have to say it was the dumbest decision ever. So when the iphone 4 released i bought that and ive been highly satisfied ever sense. Apple > Droid. No competition. I really dont have to do much explaining.

  • Danno

    I loved my Siri. I’ve used it to find restaurants in remote locations etc. It is now gone on my iPad and iPhone4. Darn.
