Apple Job Postings Hint at New Siri API

 Siri Icon

There’s no doubt that Apple’s Siri is getting some updates down the line. Afterall, it’s still beta software. Still, if there were any hints at future updates for the software it would be this: two jobs openings related to Siri.

Website 9to5Mac caught wind of the job postings as follows:

You’ll need to work with them to enable access to their data and behaviors, and wire them up to your implementations. As a result, strong API design is needed to keep communications ideal. 

And This:

We are looking for an engineer to join the team that implements the UI for Siri. You will primarily be responsible for implementing the conversation view and its many  different actions. This includes defining a system that enables a dialog to appear intuitive, a task that involves many subtle UI behaviors in a dynamic, complex system. You will have several clients of your code, so the ability to formulate and support a clear API is needed.

As the report points out, this “several clients of your code” part may not necessarily mean that there will be other programs that can make use of Siri. However, it’s always fun to see what can be done with it outside of the original design, as we saw with those awesome Siri hacks a while back, here.
