Siri Ported to iPhone 3GS Successfully [Video]

Posted 5 years ago

After blazing the iPhone 4S, Siri has now been finding its way onto other iDevices. Hackers are working day and night, porting Siri to other devices. They have done it successfully on iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G and now the most anticipated of all, the iPhone 3GS port has been successfully completed as well. A sigh of relief for the iPhone 3GS users as they won’t be bothering upgrading to iPhone 4S only for Siri anymore. But does Siri work perfectly on iPhone 3GS? Watch the video after the break.

Chpwn and his friends have finally managed to port Siri on iPhone 3GS as well and it is fully functional on Apple’s oldie as shown in the video below. Siri connects to Apple servers and has the same graphics user interface on iPhone 3GS as that on iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G. The activator is still something that is been sorted out and the Siri port is not 100% complete but yeah it’s almost complete. We can expect the brainy hackers to solve that can’t we?

Furthermore, it’s not only about the activator. 9to5Mac reports that there is an issue with the microphone as well as they say:


The port seems to work well based on the video, but we’ve been told that the microphone performance is significantly worse than the iPhone 4 microphone’s performance. If there is any significant ambient noise, the home button needs to be clicked to stop voice input.

It seems that the hackers have yet to apply the finishing touch to the Siri port on iPhone 3GS, but the good news is that it has finally been done-the hard part has been completed-but is a public release coming soon? It’s difficult to answer that but let’s hope for the best. Stay tuned for further updates.
