Apple has confirmed that its Siri technology will be available on the new iPad as part of the wider iOS 6 update.
The Siri software will also be able to carry out local search functions in all markets, having previously only been available for the US.
New sports and dining features for Siri have also been confirmed, enabling the system to provide updated scores and fixture lists or restaurant reviews. Users will also be able to get Siri to activate other apps.
Over 200 other new features for iOS 6 have also been confirmed by Apple, most notably, a new maps service powered by TomTom as opposed to Google.
The new map service promises to boast similar features to Google's recently-revamped offering, with 3D graphics, live traffic information and Siri integration enabling it to provide turn-by-turn directions.
Apple has not confirmed whether the Siri upgrade will be coming to its original iPad, although it seems unlikely, as iOS 6 will not run on these devices.
