Why can't apple get Siri  to iPad 2 ,seriously come on it has a A5chip and it is quiet powerful if an iPhone 4s can have it ,which still has a A5 chip?and in ios 6 they give the new iPad Siri and not iPad 2. I'm seriously I'm so disappointed with apple.i hope in future it comes or why not just in ios 6.0.

iPad 2, iOS 5.1.1, iOS 6

    Appe has not publicized any specific explanation as to why. Just that it isn't. Not an issue anyone here would be able to help you with.

    It's probably due to the RAM and processor limitations.

     

    iPad: RAM - 256MB, Processor - 1 GHz Apple A4

    iPad 2: RAM - 512MB, Processor - 1GHz dual-core Apple A5

    iPad 3: RAM 1024MB, Processor - 1GHz dual-core Apple A5X

     

     Cheers, Tom

    Why do you feel you have the right to any new feature not present at the time your bought your iPad 2?

     

    Did you base your iPad 2 buying decision on any promise from Apple that it would get Siri in a future update?

    So, when you purchase a car and it has a 260 horsepower engine and the next model year is released with the same car, but the engine horsepower is increased to 300 horsepower, should you get an engine upgrade for free?  Of course not.  Aside from the technical limitations of previous generation devices, why do you feel you are ENTITLED to anything more than you paid for when you purchased your device?

    It is what it is. With all due respect to folks, we're all just fellow users here. We don't know more than you do, and we have even less control. You wish to express yourself, use the 'contact us' link on the lower right and let Apple know how you feel.


    Ain't gonna change reality, but at least you can express yourself to someone other than us.

     

    When you, the general you, bought your device, you were never promised free upgrades forever.  You were sold a device that works. And it still does.

    A reasonable, logical, well thought out post is not going to work on the Internet.

    Good try though.

    Better than 'call 1800 crybaby and get over it'

     

    Personally, I'm fine with no Siri. I have no interest in it and am perfectly content to have one less 'never used but takes up room' app on my iPad

    Yep.

    Only time I ever use Siri on my phone is as a demo for people who don't know about it.

    Gets some nice ooh's and ahh's.

    the reason that they cannot is the processor is apparently not powerful enough i know your thinking well iphone 4s and ipad 2 have the same processor but the platform for siri on ipad 3 is much larger and would cause a lot of freezing on the ipad and sooner or later end up wearing ot the processor.

    How does that even fly for a logical reason or explanation for this stupidity? You are absolutely right that a car built to have 260 horsepower will have no more than 260 horsepower. If the newer model is given 300 horse then by golly it will have 300 horsepower. You can choose to upgrade your engine in some way to get 300 horsepower at your expense. The same cannot be said about apple and their iproducts which can never be upgraded. Which is why I am completely confused about your comparison. The auto industry is a far stretch from a technology related company. Software upgrades are what people count on when they purchase a technology based product to keep their device going. A basic concept in computing. In other words, Apple's to oranges mon ami! When you purchase a product from a company that claims they are revolutionary, you read and you know that the products are capable in comparison to other products made by the same company and yet they consciously make garbage decisions like not allowing Siri on a device that is more than capable (iPad 2), then something is wrong with the relationship. A paying customer deserves and is surely entitled to a proper explanation from the manufacturer. That's what a consumer driven company is required to do. After all they are nothing without their isheep. They are responsible to their consumers just as they are to their shareholders and board members. It's simply a matter of principle.
