According to a post over on melablog.it, Apple’s Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook apparently responded to a customer email regarding Italian language support in Siri. Apple’s website already lists Italian, alongside Chinese, Korean, and Spanish, as languages to be supported sometime in 2012. Tim’s email confirmed the feature is still on track for release this year. It also confirmed Tim will keep the tradition of answering customer emails. The customer asked Cook why Italy was not a focus at the launch of products and pointed to Siri and the fact that Italy is not typically included in the list of initial launch countries:
I love Italy.
We will support Italian in SIRI this year.
