A few months ago, in February, we discovered that Apple was planning to bring Siri to the Mac with the arrival of OS X 10.12 , possibly during the WWDC in June.
Apple’s voice assistant made its appearance on the iPhone in 2011, and since then Siri has made her way onto the iPad, the Apple Watch and the fourth-generation Apple TV n. So it’s no wonder that Apple is also introducing its assistant on the Mac.
While we wait for the news that the Bitten Apple company is preparing for the WWDC in June, some images have shown how the iconography of Siri will look in OS X 10.12.
As you can see from the images below, Siri will be accessible from the menu bar and from the Mac dock.
Instead of integrating Siri into an OS X Notification Center option, or creating a new full-screen interface for the wizard as is the case with iPhone and iPad, Apple will integrate the wizard into the menu bar , with a Spotlight or Notification Center-like icon.
In one of the images, the capture shows the word Siri surrounded by a square. In the dock, the icon is more visual and shows the aesthetics of Siri that was presented in iOS 8. According to MacRumors, the sources of this rumor are very reliable.
It is also expected that Siri can be activated through the popular “Hey Siri” functionality for hands-free use.
The public betas for OS X 10.12 (which could be called macOS) will arrive a couple of weeks after their official presentation during the Apple Developers Conference in June.
What do you think about the arrival of Siri in Mac? Was it necessary? And what do you think about her iconography in OS X?
