As part of its announcement of iOS 6 today, Apple showed off a number of new features it is adding to Siri. In iOS 6, Siri will be able to launch apps, get sports scores and information, retrieve more information about restaurants and book reservations, tweet, and get movie listings. Under iOS 6, Siri will support a number of new countries and languages, and will support a new feature called Eyes Free, in which Apple has partnered with a number of auto manufacturers—including BMW, GM, Mercedes, Land Rover, Jaguar, Audi, Toyota, Chrysler, and Honda—to include a steering wheel-mounted button that activates Siri without so much as lighting up the iPhone’s screen. Finally, Siri will also be available to users of the third-generation iPad under iOS 6.

I have an iPhone 4. Will the new Siri updates enable the iPhone 4 to use Siri capabilities. How about an iPad 2nd generation?

From what I’ve read, the Siri update will only be for the iPad 3 and iPhone 4S.
