Ever since Apple unveiled Siri for iOS, owners of computers running the company's Mac Operating System (OS) X have been wondering when the personal assistant would land on that platform too. And according to a recent rumor on the matter, 2016 will be the year when this finally happens.

Apple allegedly plans to create Siri the headline feature of the upcoming Mac Operating System (OS) X 10.12 release, which will probably be introduced initially at WWDC in the summer, and will then be rolling out in the fall.

Apparently, there have been test versions of Mac Operating System (OS) X with Siri built-in since 2012, but only this year will the user experience be polished enough for Apple to launch this publicly.

Siri for Mac will live inside the menu bar, in the correct corner of it to be precise. The Siri icon placed there will activate the voice control feature. Once you click on the icon, you'll acquire a blacktransparent interface similar to the one in the mockup above, complete with colorful sound waves which indicate speech input.

Siri will also acquire its own pane in the Mac System Preferences, and you'll even have the option to choose a keyboard shortslit to activate it. And the "Hey Siri" command will work while the Mac is plugged in.

Aside from Siri, the recent Mac Operating System (OS) X version isn't assumed to introduce many recent features, just minor UI tweaks here and there. Don't foracquire not to hold any of this for granted however, becautilize plans can change from now and until the announcement of Mac Operating System (OS) X 10.12.
