Siri on the iPhone 4S has been one of Apple's premier new features. It adapts to the user's individual preferences over time and personalizes results, as well as accomplishing tasks such as making dinner reservations and reserving a cab. And, most importantly to Apple, it is exclusive to Apple, iPhone 4S and iOS 5.
Now, it looks like all other iOS 5 devices can soon adapt the famed voice assistant without any sort of jailbreak.
Jackoplane, the mastermind behind this hack, announced Wednesday that he has successfully ported Siri to other devices running iOS 5 -- to be specific, the iPad, iPad 2, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 3GS, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 -- and has gotten them to communicate with Apple's servers without any issues or jailbreak.
