Apple’s newly-released iOS 5.1 beta 3 contains references to Siri dictation on the iPad, according to a new report. Citing self-proclaimed hacker Sonny Dickson, 9to5Mac reports that the beta contains a new section in the keyboard menu labeled “About Privacy and Dictation” that, when tapped, displays standard legal and feature information for Siri dictation. As noted in the report, this menu item does not appear on the iPhone 4S, but is instead found under the Siri preferences and covers both Siri and its dictation feature, suggesting that its appearance on the iPad is not the result of the code accidentally being carried over from the iPhone 4S.
