The WWDC is closing in fast and there are quite a handful of things to expect from the event. However, we have come across a news that might interest OS X users, especially those who are anxious for what they might get in the upcoming update. Previous rumors suggest that one of the key integration in OS X 10.12 will be the addition of Siri. Now, the screenshots of the Siri menu bar and Siri icon for mac have surfaced, showing what it would look like.
Siri Icon For Mac Revealed Ahead OF WWDC
Generally, the screenshots suggest that Apple is indeed working to bring Siri to Mac this year. Shared to MacRumors, the screenshots show how the upcoming Siri icon will look like. In the menu bar, Siri is dressed as a plain black and white icon with the word 'Siri' inside a box. The full dock icon on the other hand is a little pleasant to watch with a colorful waveform icon enclosed in the style of other built-in app icons.
Probably, Siri incorporated in Mac will have more or less the same features as you would find on the iPhone. Launching the virtual assistant on the Mac will bring Siri's waveform interface, waiting for users to say a command. This is more or less the same as you would press and hold the Home button of your iPhone to initiate Siri. Moreover, the hands-free "Hey Siri" activation will also be part of the upcoming upgrade. However, this will be disabled by default, but users can always turn it on from the Preferences menu.
As we have mentioned earlier, Siri on the Mac will allow users to make web searches, sending text messages, reading emails, setting calendar entries and much more as you would do on an iPhone. Nonetheless, it seems Siri is still in its initial stages and work is still under progress. Moreover, since Siri for Mac still has a long way to go before it sets sail towards the release, there are chances that the icon and the interface as a whole could see a little variation before it is unveiled at the WWDC.
The World Wide Developers Conference is set to take place from June 13 to June 17. So, we do have to endure the wait for now until Apple publicly announces its next big updates. This is it for now, folks. What are views on the Siri icon for Mac? Share your thoughts in the comments.
