Siri Isn’t Technically Limited to the iPhone 4S

By Cody Lee on Oct 14, 2011

Why Apple has limited its new Siri personal assistant feature to the iPhone 4S is anyone’s guess. At first it was believed that a lot of the backend of Siri took place on the handset, so it needed the A5′s extra power. But that didn’t prove to be the case.
