Another Leaked Feature For iOS5

According to leaked screenshot from 9 to 5 Mac, Apple is working on Assistant, a voice control feature that will be integrated into iOS 5.

Just like Voice Control was exclusive to the 3GS when it launched, the feature most possibly will be exclusive for iPhone5. But Assistant will not only convert speech to text or command basic iPhone functions.

The technology used in the app Siri that Apple had acquired lately, will be implemented. With Siri, data store on your device like location, calendar schedule, etc. will be used to best fulfill your inquiry. For example, when you say” Buy two tickets to Harry Potter movie for tonight”, Assistant will find available tickets near your location for the time you requested.

Assistant is also said to be crowdsourced, which means user data will be taken with permission to improve the service over time.

Siri’s free app can be downloaded here if you want to get a feel of what Assistant like.
