Sundance: iOS 6 Codename Internally Used by Apple, Siri Coming to iPad
Apple has a history of giving codenames to its upcoming iOS firmware; now a latest report by tech Crunch reveals that Apple is internally using the codename of “Sundance” for its upcoming iOS 6. Moreover iPhone 4S’ exclusive feature personal assistant ‘Siri’ is now coming to iPad. The site also confirms that apple is getting rid of Google Maps and is pushing out its own Maps with 3D mode as a striking feature of new iOS 6.
As a quick aside, while there’s not much other iOS 6 information floating around out there right now, there have been whispers backing up Gruber’s assertion that Siri APIs are another possibility. There have also been whispers about Siri for iPad finally coming. Specifically, I’ve been led to believe it’s more of a UI issue than anything else. After all, Apple is using the technology for the Dictation functionality found on the new iPad. They’ve just been working on what Siri for iPad will look like; I’ve been led to believe.
Finally, iOS 6 update would grab new iCloud functionality and a revamped version of iTunes as its exclusive features.
