Siri On An IPad?

When Apple first announced Siri, one of the most frequent questions about the digital assistant was which devices would it support. Unfortunately, it didn’t take long to realize that Apple was limiting the voice-recognition service to just the iPhone 4S. I was particularly surprised that Siri wasn’t coming to the iPad 2, seeing as it’s equipped with the same A5 processor as the 4S.

Well it looks like I wasn’t the only one interested in Siri on an iPad. A jailbreak developer known on twitter as Jackoplane tweeted screenshots of Siri enabled in the settings of a jailbroken first-gen iPad.

Unfortunately, though, there appears to be an issue – jailbroken Siri doesn’t play nice with Apple’s server. So, any command that requires contact with Apple servers is not possible on a device other than the iPhone 4S.

But other than the server issue, the successful port of Siri to the iPad means that there might just be hope of Apple-supported Siri on an iPad in the future. Fingers crossed!
