One of the major features of the iPhone 4S is its exclusive inclusion of Siri, the voice-activated software for everything from searching the web to searching physical locations on a map. Just days after its release on the new iPhone, hackers were able to port it to the original iPhone 4 and now to the iPad 2.

According to, developer/hacker Sonny Dickson claims to have a working prototype of Siri on an iPad 2 and included a supposed screenshot of the app running on the tablet (shown below). Seeing as how the program is already making advancements towards an unofficial fully-fledged version for the iPhone 4, we see no reason to deny that an iPad 2 port will be down the line as well.

The port is not ready for primetime just yet, however, as it is currently likely running into the same issues as the iPhone 4 port. In other words, performance has yet to be optimized.

For now, the surefire way to experience Siri at its fullest is with an iPhone 4S. Otherwise, users with a jailbroken iPhone 4 or iPad 2 will just have to wait.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
