When Apple launched the iPhone 4S they did so with a new app integrated with iOS, which was called Siri and changed the way users interacted with their phone and this smarter voice control system has been used exclusively on the 4S as a marketing tactic. We are days away from the iPad 3 release, just under 48 hours at the time of writing, and this date could bring an Apple keynote that reveals other products and services to help keep the iPad 3 as the tablet market leader.
The one more thing that is not expected — Apple love to pull a major surprise “out of the box” when they launch new products, and most technology blogs are expecting Siri integration that is pretty much a certain feature on the iPad 3, but what could be the “one more thing” not expected? Everyone is talking about LTE 4G and playing the naming game, but if Apple did something really special and unexpected what could it be that would blow our minds?
Let’s go out on a limb and be creative with a new iPad 3 feature that could change everything again — Telepresence could be the next killer app that could be something amazing for the next iPad, if marketed correctly. We all love sending text messages and this has been made easier with the new message system on iOS, mix this with Siri and Facetime for some more cool features but Telepresence could take everything to another level.
Do you know what Telepresence is? Steve Jobs knew how good Telepresence was and he could have already done a lot of the leg work for the new iPad 3 and iPhone 5 this year, which could be the real change needed for the next iPhone and the reason the 4S was just a minor update. Those of you that don’t know much about Telepresence should see the Cisco page found on their official website here, and also watch the video below this article.
How do you think Telepresence could change the future and especially when it comes to a possible iPad 3 integration with enhancements in iOS 6 later this year as well? The video we included talks about the “Cisco TelePresence portfolio” that creates a face-to-face experience like nothing you’ve seen before, and if Cisco has secretly partnered with Apple for a new app included with iPad 3 it could be the feature that keeps them ahead of the competition. Have a watch of the video and let us know your thoughts on this crazy but also innovative possibility with amazing potential.
One thing to remember is that Siri used technology already around before iPhone 4S and included it as standard with the new iPhone, so if the same was done with the iPad 3 and with a twist from Apple it could be something pretty cool. Again share your thoughts on this after learning a bit more about Telepresence via the video below and Cisco’s website. You can also see this page on Wikipedia that explains a little about the history of this technology and might give you a better understanding of how it could enhance the iPad 3 with default integration.
