Lots of talk around iOS 5 these days. And we're not just talking about the hype surrounding WWDC.
A report from TechCrunch points to a major update coming for the iOS platform in the autumn. With it will come a new way to control your iPhone.
The report suggests that Apple is working on software which will allow a user to deliver voice commands directly to the handset. Some time back, Apple agreed to purchase a small software vendor called Siri. Its product? You guessed it, voice command software.
Now, reports are that Apple is going to put the Siri software to use by incorporating it into the rest of the iOS. This could be an interesting addition, but call us cautiously optimistic at this point.
Voice recognition technology has been available on personal computers for well over a decade, but by and large it hasn't caught on, largely due to poor hardware and recognition ability.
Hopefully Apple will get this right and the voice recognition will be more than just a gimmick. Aside from convenience, this type of technology could help make roads safer by allowing drivers to keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
