Apple reaffirms Siri as iPhone 4S exclusive

In responding to a developer bug report, Apple has reaffirmed that its Siri virtual assistant will remain exclusive to the iPhone 4S for now. Citing a person who submitted a bug report suggesting that Apple release a paid version of iOS for iPhone 4 and fourth-generation iPod touch users that would include Siri, Michael Steeber reports that Apple responded with a simple statement: “Siri only works on iPhone 4S and we currently have no plans to support older devices.” While Apple has given no indication of plans to add Siri to any of its other products, several members of the jailbreak community have been able to get the feature running on various older Apple products.

I’m sorry to say this is a very cheap/stingy move by Apple. I expect these “forced upgrade” strategies from companies like Microsoft. At the very least, they could’ve allowed the former Siri App to live on.
