“During yesterday’s special iPhone event, Eddy Cue, Senior VP of Internet Software and Services took to the stage to announce that a new version of iTunes. Cue pointed to dramatically simplifying iTunes across devices, building-in iCloud, redesigning the iTunes Store and more,” Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple.

“Interestingly enough, the new iTunes won’t ship with iPhone-5 but rather later in October,” Purcher reports. “Is Apple prepping it to debut on a new iMac with the Lightning connector? I don’t know. But what I do know is that a revised patent application published today by the US Patent Office clearly points to Voice Recognition coming to Apple’s desktop.”

Purcher reports, “Translation: Siri is coming to a future iMac and the number one app that its being designed to work with is, you got it, iTunes. We’ll point you to that patent application and a few other interesting ones that you may want to further explore on your own. “
