This information comes from an e-mail sent to a customer who had suggested that Apple make Siri available as a paid upgrade for users of the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPads, or newer-generation iPods.
Apple was essentially forced to address the rumors swirling around the popular program, as hackers have found a way to trick other Apple gadgets to use Siri.
The Apple statement reads as follows: “Engineering has provided the following feedback regarding this issue: Siri only works on iPhone 4S and we currently have no plans to support older devices.”
Although Apple maintains that Siri can work smoothly only for the iPhone 4S, the statement is not entirely true, as a small team of developers have used components from the newest handset to supplement the old ones.
If the millions of iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS users were to start using Siri too, it would certainly worsen the frustrating problem and Apple’s engineers might not be able to keep up.
