Code found within the iOS 7.1 SDK suggests that Siri may be headed to the Apple TV sometime in the future. Siri is likely destined for a future version of the Apple TV, as the current model lacks any microphone input.
Pierre Blazquez first found the reference on Friday. 9to5Mac has since confirmed that the code does exist in both iOS 7.1 and iOS 7.1.1′s files. The reference does not exist in 7.0.6.
The file found is a supporting property-list resource for Assistant (Apple’s internal name for Siri), which contains information about the feature. The UIDeviceFamily array declares what platforms are compatible with a feature.
As indicated by Apple’s documentation, ’1′ and ’2′ represent the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad families. The ’3′ represents the Apple TV family.
Apple is rumored to have a new Apple TV in development, and it is expected to offer full-blown apps and games.
