The next iteration of Mac OS X, OS X 10.12, is expected to feature Apple's voice assistant Siri.

Siri was first introduced in 2011 and made her appearance first on the iPhone. She has since been made available on the iPad, Apple Watch, and even the Apple TV.

At WWDC 2016, Apple is expected to announce the next version of Mac OS X as well as the availability of Siri on OS X. In anticipation of this, here are some screenshots showing what Siri integration on OS X may look like.

According to these reports, Siri will "live" on the Mac's menu bar for easy access. In addition, she can also be invoked through a regular dock icon. Clicking on either we bring up the Siri waveform to indicate that Siri is listening for commands.

Additionally, it is also said that Siri can be voice activated as well with the phrase "Hey Siri", much like how it works on iPhones and iPads.
