Apple patents point to Siri controlling iTunes on Mac and more

“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. ”
