Tim Cook at D10: Hints at Facebook Integration, and Siri Improvements
By on May 30th, 2012

Last month, we reported that Tim Cook was to kickoff the D10 conference. That occurred today in which Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher interviewed Apple CEO Tim Cook about a range of topics. MacRumors has a transcript of the entire interview. During the interview, Cook hinted at two upcoming feature for Apple’s customers.

The first one suggested that Facebook integration into iOS maybe on its way. In the past, it has been rumored that negotiations between Apple and Facebook have been tough. As a result, Facebook integration in iOS has been absent while Twitter has been integrated.

When Cook was asked about Apple’s relationship with Facebook,  he suggested that there will be news in the near future:

For us, we want to provide customers simple and elegant ways to do the things they want to do. Facebook has hundreds of millions of customers. So, anyone that has an iPhone or iPad, we want them to have the best experience with Facebook on those platforms. So stay tuned.

Cook was also asked regarding Siri and reported that customers love the voice assistant feature on the iPhone 4S, and that its one of the most popular features on the device. He went on to say that they have a lot more coming:

But, there’s more that it can do. We have a lot of people working on this. You’ll be really pleased with the things you’ll see over the coming months. The breadth that you’re talking about — we’ve got some cool ideas about what Siri can do. We have a lot going on on this.
