No Siri on iPhone 4 after all

Written by



High maintenance girl


It appears Apple won’t allow its new digital assistant service Siri to run old on the old iPhone 4 after all.

Although enthusiasts were confident they could eventually port Siri to iPhone 4 devices, iOS enthusiast Steven Troughton Smith doesn’t seem too confident. He managed to port Siri, but it relies on server-side software to work properly. Apple servers simply won’t authenticate Siri commands issued form an iPhone 4, which means it will run as if it were offline. Basically, it won’t be able to do much.

Apple is not stupid.

It is, pretty much.
8 megapixel wider lens camera with gyro-balanced anti-shake during full HD recording is good, but really it's all about Siri.
