After the rumors stopped for the Samsung’s third-generation Galaxy S III, now started with the WWDC which always sees the plethora of conjecture and the 2012 event is not different though. Every year when a new version of iOS releases its becomes the pretty hotly anticipated product, but today in a form of a rumor came out from the popular source said something unfamiliar.
MG Siegler from TechCrunch, the man with the golden sources adds some ingredients to the upcoming iOS 6 is currently being codenamed as “Sundance” in the corridors of power at Apple. Rumors regarding to the next major upgraded version of the Cupertino company’s mobile operating system have really picked up over the past few days. Siegler also claims that the existing rumors of Apple’s 3D mapping technology to replace Google Maps though, its spotted.
Believe it or not, the much more interesting news surfaces that the possible addition of an API for Apple’s digital assistant, Siri for developers, that isn’t confirmed yet.
According to the MG, Siri is possibly on the table of being opened up to third-party developers, which means apps such as OmniFocus and TomTom could integrated into Siri. While this could not be possible, reason, opening it up to developers could potentially change the way interacting with the iPhone completely.
Continuing with the Siri theme, TechCrunch’s Siegler also claims that Siri is all set to make its way to the iPad, with the rumor that Apple is currently working its best way to implement the personal voice assistant on the larger screens, not the Mac OS X and Windows, but the iPad models.
What he believes?
After all, Apple is using the technology for the Dictation functionality found on the new iPad. They’ve just been working on what Siri for iPad will look like, I’ve been led to believe.
This isn’t over yet, another discussion includes the suggestion that iTunes will make the jump to version 11. This would not be a rumor though, while Apple was trying to completely re-write the software for a long time now. Whilst on iTunes 11 talking on more Spotify-like functionality and a redesigned with the iCloud very much in play right now. Apple with its cloud-based technology could change the way we handle our music by making iCloud an major part of the application.
While its believed that the new iCloud functionality should be implemented into iOS 6 as well. With the latest and forthcoming OS X Mountain Lion should be rolled out.
iTunes 11, new iCloud, OX Mountain Lion, of all the iOS 6 rumors, the Siri API integration is the most interesting for everyone, alongside the third-party access to Notification Center widgets though, would change with the latest 3D-Mapping services too.
