Rumor: next major upgrade of OS X will finally add Siri support

If true, it’s about time. 9to5Mac reports that the next major release of the Mac operating system, probably to be dubbed OS X 10.12, will add support for Siri, Apple’s “personal digital assistant” that was introduced in iOS 5.

OS X 10.12 will almost certainly be previewed at this summer’s Apple Worldwide Developer Conference and be available for users in the fall. 9to5Mac says Apple had been testing versions of OS X internally with Siri integration since at least 2012, “but sources now say that Apple has a clear vision for Siri on the Mac along with a polished user-interface and is nearly ready to launch the feature publicly.”
