It seems Siri will be getting a boost in the productivity department in the new iOS update. Until now it has been able to help with simple tasks such as send messages and open emails. With Siri coming soon to the iPad, there will be some supped up features coming as well. Including the ability to launch any app and post status updates to Twitter and Facebook.
Here is how Apple describes the new Siri:
Siri makes social networking that much more fun — and easy. Update your Facebook status, post a comment on your Wall, or send a tweet using just the sound of your voice. You can get the word out faster — all without having to type a single word.
With iOS 6, you can ask Siri to open apps for you. If you arrive early at the cafe Siri helped you find, just ask to play Where’s My Water so you can kill time while you wait. Or ask Siri to launch Facebook and see what your friends are up to, or take a look at the latest posts on your Wall.
I think these will be great additions and can’t wait for them to roll out. Right now the new iOS and Siri features are only available to Beta testers with expectations of a full release sometime in September.
