Since Apple introduced Siri last fall, folks have been going through great lengths to install it on other devices. But Apple has continued to keep the feature exclusive to the iPhone 4S. Until now, that is.

Along with a number of other Siri-related announcements this morning, Apple announced that iOS 6 would be bringing the digital assistant to the latest iPad. So you know iDB had to go hands-on…

As you can see, Siri for the iPad looks rather similar to its 4S counterpart. It’s activated the same way, by holding down the tablet’s Home button. And it’s capable of doing virtually all of the same tasks.

We’re working on getting you more hands-on screen shots of new iOS 6 features, and I know that Jeff has a walk-through video of the new OS in the works. So stay tuned.

  • I was hoping on a iPhone announcement!!

    • It’s fairly obvious that an iPhone wouldn’t be announced seen as though Apple tend to announce new devices shortly before they’re set to go on sale, and considering that the iPhone 4S only came out last October there won’t be another one until at least this October.

  • Grammar police!

  • Why Siri’s not works on iPad 2?! =/

    • Because Apple want you to purchase newer devices. However, they’ll most likely be an update for Spire so that it can enable Siri on the 1st gen iPad and iPad 2.
