Siri gets ported to iPhone 4 (video) – updated
iOS developer Steven Troughton-Smith and blog 9to5Mac are working on porting iPhone 4S’s Siri feature to iPhone 4, and it seems that they have got some success. As you can see in the video embedded below, Siri is working absolutely fine on iPhone 4. Although the iPhone 4 and Siri are looking a bit sluggish in the video but that is not because of Siri, it is acting in that way because iPhone 4 lacks a GPU driver that is not included in the iPhone 4S binary cache.
The developer working on this port has determined that iPhone 4′s hardware fully supports and is capable of running Siri and artificial intelligence of this kind, so there’s no reason for Apple to block iPhone 4 users from getting Siri on their devices. The work on Siri port for iPhone 4 is underway and we will let you know as soon as new developments are announced.
Update: Developer Steven Troughton-Smith, who is working on this Siri port to iPhone 4 has posted another video on Youtube. Unlike the video above, Siri UI works much more smoother in this new video, but connection to Apple’s servers could not be established at the moment. The work on this port is in progress so stay tuned for more updates.
