• Improved Voice Command Reportedly Coming with iOS 5

    On the heels of Apple's confirmation that the future of its iOS will be on display at the WWDC, which commences this year on June 6th at San Francisco's Moscone West, there is rampant speculation about what the refreshed operating system will serve up. On Tuesday, sources close to the development of iOS 5 say Apple is aiming to drastically improve upon voice commands.

    Last year, through the acquisition of Siri, Apple gained access to groundbreaking technologies so intelligent that, if implemented via iDevices, could make our favorite Apple products like the iPhone vastly "smarter" than any previous model. Siri, after all, has pioneered applications that enable users to deliver voice commands that prompt the app to do the research or other legwork required to complete a particular task.

    The use of Siriís artificial intelligence and assistance technology is said to be deeply integrated into the OS for all the different services offered.
    Given the supposed robust slate of improvements planned for iOS 5, the new operating system may be demoed in June but not actually released until fall. Sources speaking on a basis of anonymity with Tech Crunch on Friday revealed that iOS 5 will definitely not be released during summer. Among the major tweaks coming with iOS 5 are cloud-based features for online storage of music, photos and video.

    While many are already speculating the iPhone 5 will debut at the same time as iOS 5 in fall, at this time there is really no concrete evidence to otherwise suggest that Apple will stray from tradition and not release the 5th generation iPhone in June at WWDC.
