Apple to Include Siri & Maps in Early Builds of OS X 10.9
Apple to include Siri & Maps in its next Mac operating system-OS X 10.9, it is just reported by 9to5Mac by citing its reliable sources.
It is currently uncertain if Siri will be available, if it goes past the early testing stages, in OS X 10.9 for all users. Siri on iOS devices is tied specifically to certain, newer iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches, so it is possible that Apple will make a similar decision for Siri on the Mac. However, Dictation, which uses a similar infrastructure and hardware resources as Siri, is available on all Macs capable of running Mountain Lion, the current Mac operating system that introduced Dictation.
Particularly, Apple is introducing Maps as a framework for developers (ie. MapKit) that will developers to utilize the service for applications submitted to the Mac App Store. Still it is not obvious whether Apple will include a standalone Maps application in the new OS.
Apple is expected to release OS X 10.9 around June/July next year. Also, at this stage no one knows OS X 10.9 will be named on which big cat…..Cheetah, Puma, Jaguar, Panther, Tiger, Leopard, Lion….. Mountain Lion and…….next?..Guess Please.
