As per Apple, this application is for User Profiling for Voice Input Processing, which can be described as the ability to identify the voice and understand some real complex commands.Apple recently filed a patent application for a technology to keep your screen free of fingerprints and now this application will enable you to keep your fingers away from even touching the screen in the first place.
Showing it’s interest in voice commands earlier in April 2010, Apple bought a company named Siri that created application for iPhone users to operate there device with voice commands. Siri’s voice technology can listen to user voice commands to make phone calls and control music playback and Apple is planning to improve it.
