A developer in the US has ported the recently launch Siri voice activated personal assistant service from the newly launch Apple iPhone 4S to the device's predecessor, the iPhone 4
One of the highlights from the recently released Apple iPhone 4S handset, the voice activated personal assistant Siri has been successfully ported to the devices predecessor the Apple iPhone 4.
Currently exclusive to the iPhone 4S, Siri has made the jump from the dual-core device to its single-core sibling thanks to developer Steven Troughton-Smith who has transported the spoken command activated service via through its control and Springboard files hidden within the device’s coding.
Whilst the Siri application can be seen running on the now dated device, recognising spoken commands and displaying in the standard Siri view and keyboard Dictation view, the voice activated service runs a lot slower and clunkier than on its native 4S.
As well as playing host to the feisty Siri service, Apple’s latest foray into the smartphone sector has been given a complete internal overhaul despite maintaining the same form factor as the device it is replacing.
Adding the same ARM A5 dual-core processor found within the Apple iPad 2, the iPhone 4S also plays host to a new fully optimised 8-megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities.
