SirimacRumors of Siri, the famous iPhone voice-operated assistant, coming to the Mac have been swirling lately, and some recent leaks have given us a solid glimpse into the probability of Siri coming to the Mac. MacRumors reports that they have received screenshots from a reliable source giving us a peek into the development of Siri for the Mac. In addition to a Siri app in the dock (above), it is reported that there will be a "Hey Siri" feature, much like the iPhone's, that can be turned on or off in preferences. Having "Hey Siri" on would definitely drain battery, but it would be a useful feature, especially as it appears there will be a Siri app which would take longer than just saying a command.

Do I think that Siri is coming to Mac? Absolutely. Rumors of Siri on Macs have been floating ever since Siri came to the iPhone, and now that Apple has improved Siri dramatically on the iPhone, it's time for the voice-automated assistant to arrive on the Mac. The report from MacRumors almost confirms this, and it appears we will probably find out for sure this June at WWDC, when Apple anounces OS X 10.12. The only thing left for Apple to do is fix their stale lineup of computers that hasn't changed much in the past few years. But, that's another subject for another time. As usual, feel free to leave a comment if you have additional input. Thanks!
