WWDC 2016: Siri for Mac Announcement Confirmed?

Siri for Mac

Siri is one of the revolutionary addition to the world of mobile technology ever since Apple introduced it more than four years ago. Since then, the personal assistant found on iOS devices has not only been used with the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPads, it has also been integrated into watchOS for the Apple Watch and tvOS for Apple TV. Now it appears that the Cupertino-based tech giant could be making an announcement involving Siri at WWDC 2016, this time introducing Siri for Mac.

According to a report from 9to5Mac, Siri is expected to make up a big chunk of the WWDC 2016 keynote. Even before the start of the conference, Siri may just have spoiled the big surprise as it has been referencing the ?Finder? app when asked questions involving windows and other operations which can be done on the Mac.

Brian Roemmele of Medium tried asking Siri to ?open settings in the Window?, which of course does not exist in iOS. Siri answers ?It doesn?t look like you have an app named ?Finder??. For those who are unfamiliar with the Finder app, the same Medium article notes that it is an ?integral part of OS X (soon to be called MacOS)?.

The fact that Siri is referencing the Finder app could definitely mean that a Siri for Mac may already be a virtual certainty at this point. There would be no reason to add responses which references the Finder app which can only be found in the MacOS if Apple didn?t intend to add Siri to the upcoming OS.

Still, it will be interesting to see just how effective Siri can be on the Mac. I guess we will just have to wait until the WWDC 2016 keynote to finally find out what Apple has in store for Siri in the near future.
