Apple’s smart intelligent personal assistant Siri is finally making its way to Mac OS X. Apple is currently working on the latest Mac OS X update, known as OS X 10.12, and it seems Siri will mark its presence with the update.
Siri was first introduced with the iPhone 4s in 2011. Since then, it has steadily made its way to the rest of Apple’s line-up, Last year, Apple implemented Siri as in Apple Watch and Apple TV and now it seems Macs will soon get a new companion too.
As reported by 9to5Mac, Apple had been testing Siri integration with Mac OS since at least 2012. Sources has told 9to5Mac that Apple now has a clear vision for Siri on the Mac along with a “polished user-interface” and is “nearly ready to launch” the feature publicly.
Apple is expected to introduce new Mac OS X update this June at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).
9to5Mac’s report further suggest that Siri will live in the Mac’s Menu Bar, and it will have its own System Preferences pane. The “Hey Siri” voice-command will also work similar to iPhone and iPad.
Siri has always been important part of iOS since its introduction. Last year, Apple used Siri in “Hey Siri, give us a hint” campaign for their iPhone 6s and 6s Plus launch. Siri’s entry to Mac OS is undoubtedly one of the best news for Mac fans.
