Rumor 4: iPhone 5 will feature speech recognition with iOS 5 update

It’s been speculated for quite some time that Apple was expected to enhance the iPhone’s speech recognition capabilities, especially since Google has been clearly taking the lead with its own speech recognition which they boasted at a conference back in 2010. It is said that iOS 5 could provide limited speech recognition functions, like dialing numbers or playing a directed music. The official announcement of iOS 5 on WWDC 2001 will make it clear whether we will see this speech recognition function on iPhone 5 or not.

Both the 5-megapixel camera on the iPhone 4 and the 3.2-megapixel device on the iPhone 3GS have been supplied by OmniVision.
