Bloomberg reports that, “Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.”

This is very important when it comes to Apples privacy policies and its desire to minimise the invasion of privacy for its users. It has been rumoured that Perceptio will play a very significant part on Siri’s upgrading.
