Siri Gets Ported To iPhone 4, and They Said It Couldn’t Be Done

“They said it couldn’t be done, but it could be done.” Siri has been ported over to the iPhone 4 by developer Steven Troughton-Smith along with others over at 9to5 Mac. The iPhone 4S has been the only device so far to have the Siri voice assistant integration built into its firmware, but not the iPad 2 which also shares a strong similarity in internal hardware specs. We may never see Siri released officially for the iPhone 4 or the newest iPod Touch generations either, but we knew it was only a matter of time until real developers made that a possibility. Check out video after the break.

The port is being created based on files found of the iPhone 4S and Springboard. Judging from the videos below, there still seems to be some work to go, as Apple will not authenticate Siri’s commands on non iPhone 4S devices. But improvements in performance are being constantly worked on by the porters previously mentioned.
