A few stock applications that were on the iPhone never made their way to the iPad. Indeed, the Weather, Stocks, and Clock apps for example have been nowhere to be found on the iPad since its launch in 2010.

With the introduction of iOS 6 beta though, Apple has officially brought the Clock app to its popular tablet – see our video walkthrough. Even though you won’t find its icon anywhere, the Stocks app also makes an appearance…

iDB reader Gurmehar tipped us:

Well this isn’t really a feature, it’s more of an Easter egg. On the iPad, if you ask Siri to “launch Stocks,” it opens the iPhone version of the app which isn’t even installed.

Go ahead, try it for yourself.

Do you know of any new cool features in iOS 6? Please make sure to hit us up with your tips.

  • Love ’em “Easter Eggs”….. 

    Looks like the biggest “leak source” inside of Apple is their very own Siri!!!!  LOL!!!

    Nice it works on my iPad
    By the way the best stock FREE app for iPad (compatible Retina) is yahoo one “MarketDash” but it’s only available in US App Store, I dunno why

  • if anybody interested to get their UDID registered for a year to play with ios 6 now! email me at ios6udid12 at gmail dot com

      No-one is interested in your pathetic scam. So why don’t you just f*ck off.

  • To me, this indicates that the final build of iOS 6 will have the iPad version of Stocks. Why else would they include Stocks for the iPhone in iOS 6 Beta and let users launch it pixel-doubled via Siri. That ain’t good from attention to detail point of view 🙂

  • Who the F is Gurmehar? That’s exactly my quote you theif

    Its a freakin’ BETA DAMMIT!! If this isn’t resolved by the time iOS 6 is actually released, then start your useless whinging

  • Thomas Carnahan

    It’s nice to still have stocks but not the icon

  • I noticed the stocks widget actually showed up on my iPad today (Beta 1).

  • It launches Stocks Live app, which is even cooler.

  • Patched in the final version, thou you can ask Siri and get the sticks info
