    Apple’s next iteration of OS X — 10.12, codenamed Fuji — will feature a familiar voice that’s already made her way to Apple TV and Apple Watch, as well as the iPhone and iPad in years past.

    Apple has been testing internal versions of OS X with Siri integration since 2012, but according to reporting from 9 to 5 Mac, this year’s annual WWDC will finally make it official.

    Siri will live in your Mac’s menu bar, much like Spotlight, and a touch of the icon will activate the voice controller. If your Mac is plugged in, you can use the “Hey Siri” command much like you would on an iPhone or iPad to beckon the digital assistant without any button pressing.
