would get Siri with iOS 6. We had heard before that Apple has been "testing" Siri on other iOS hardware like the iPad 2 and maybe the iPhone 4.Audience made the noise filtering/sound suppression technology, called earSmart, that Apple had built into the A5 processor in order to make Siri better. It's also been used as the number one reason why Siri couldn't be found on other iOS devices, and why Apple has limited comments to saying the new iPad (powered by an A5X chip)
Of course, if Apple has found a way around using Audience's technology, that could be the key to getting Siri running to Apple's standards on older hardware. It could also mean that Apple simply built its own version of Audience's tech, or is using a different option for the new iPhone, and that will be baked into whatever chip powers the new iPhone. We'll find out soon enough.
