Developers at Applidium have managed to port Apple's Siri voice control to other iPhones.

"More [intriguing], however, are the reports that Siri’s security code -- which checks for the presence of several iPhone chipsets -- has been cracked, meaning that -- in theory at least -- the software could run on an Android, BlackBerry or Windows smartphone/tablet," Infosecurity reports.

"Whilst there have been instances of crackers developing a ROM bootstrap routine to install Android on an iPhone -- although the resultant speed is very poor, Infosecurity notes -- the attraction of running a voice assistant on other portable platforms would be a major one," the article states.
