Apple Filed Patent for "Smart dock" on Thursday

Apple on Thursday filed a patent for a "Smart dock for activating a voice recognition mode of a portable electronic device". Such a system will allow users to activate Siri and get access to voice recognition functions of the the compatible device once it is connected.

According to what MacRumors writes,

In detail, a user would assign an audio prompt to the device upon setup such as a spoken word, phrase, or hand clap that would trigger the dock for use, and can also "unpair" voice recognition functions with another specific audio prompt.


It is not known if Apple will actually create a smart dock for its products, but the existence of a device as detailed in the patent would be of a new effort for the company.

Currently, the docks for both iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c serve as charging cradles - nothing less, nothing more. That is why I like the idea of adding some functionality to these gadgets.
