Apple confirms iPhone 4 will not get Siri compatibility

Siri, Apple's new voice activated personal assistant is to remain exclusive to the iPhone 4S with no iPhone 4 compatibility planned

Apple has announced that it has no intention of rolling out its recently released, voice-commanded personal assistant Siri to older iPhone devices.

Landing on the newly launched Apple iPhone 4S Siri looks set to remain exclusive to the latest generation smartphone with official word from Apple tricking through that the Cupertino based company “currently has no plans to support older devices.”

The announcement, which landed via the blog of an Apple reporter was release in response to a number of issues some users had been experiencing with the personal assistant service.

"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," the Apple confirmation read.

Apple iPhone 4S Specs

Whilst a number of users have attempted to port the Siri software to their iPhone 4 handsets, the service looks set to remain officially exclusive to the 4S.

Officially release last month in place of the much mooted iPhone 5 the iPhone 4S boasts the same ARM A5 dual-core processor found within the iPad 2 alongside and 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities.
