While Apple has been internally testing a Mac implementation of Siri for quite some time, sources say that the company now has a clear vision for the personal assistant on Mac and a polished user interface. It's expected to unveil the feature and OS X 10.12 at WWDC this June.
Siri is expected to live at the top right of the Mac's menu bar, similar to the Spotlight magnifying glass.
When a user clicks the Siri button, a dark, transparent Siri interface will appear in the top right corner of the screen, as shown in our mockup by Michael Steeber. This interface will feature colorful sound waves to indicate speech input. The interface design in testing is not finalized and may still change before the summer introduction, according to sources.
Siri is said to have its own pane in System Preferences where users can choose to have the personal assistant activated by a keyboard shortcut. Additionally, you'll be able to have Siri enabled at startup and use a 'Hey Siri' command when your device is plugged in.
OS X 10.12 is reportedly codenamed, 'Fuji'. It's said to have some minor user interface tweaks but nothing as major as the Yosemite update. Release is planning for the fall.
