Code Found in iOS 7.1 Suggests Apple is Working on Siri for the Apple TV

Code references found in the iOS 7.1 SDK by Pierre Blazquez reveal that Apple is working on Siri for the Apple TV.

9to5Mac was able to confirm that the code is found in iOS 7.1 and iOS 7.1.1 files but not in iOS 7.0.6.

The file is a supporting property-list resource for Assistant (Apple’s internal name for Siri), containing information about the feature. The UIDeviceFamily array declares what platforms are compatible with the feature. As shown by Apple’s documentation, '1' and '2' represent the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad families. The '3' represents the Apple TV family.

It's believed that Apple is working on a new generation Apple TV which will be released soon. The device is rumored to feature new content, gaming capabilities, AirPort Express functionality, and even a cable box feature. We can now add Siri to the list of possible improvements!

damn, i've been waiting for over a year for the "updated" apple tv. every year supposedly released. i have the feeling that whenever a competitor release something new, it pushes the release date back. something is wrong within apple. it's very slow internally from conception to delivery. there is something wrong inside.

Is that Apple trying to copy Amazon?

Are you trying to compare from the worst? They made Siri but if it work different than this then it's far from copying.

First of all they didn't make Siri. Siri already existed and since apple couldn't come up with their own software they bought the company that did. Microsoft and Amazon already have voice controls, so yeah, apple is copying. Apple tv and Siri have been out for years it's not a coincidence that they're doing this now.

The only coincidence here is how much myth you believe. Apple continued siri but others were inspired right off of it. If there was nothing else to do to the software how does that explain all the jd power awards and the one yesterday that was just announced about them winning again, better yet what existed before siri they copied? Plus does this even work like spamazons yet because how else do you know if you can't read future?
