Siri will speak Canadian English, Spanish (Spain/Mexico), Italian, Italian (Switzerland), Korean, Mandarin (Chinese/Taiwan), Cantonese (Hong Kong). The Flyover mode in Maps can be used only on dual-core powered iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and iPad 3 devices.
If you are ready to go, you can check the Software update menu on your eligible device. Users can also download update from your PC or Mac, but the users are required to be running on the latest iTunes (v10.7) version. Don’t forget to take a full backup of your device before attempting to upgrade it.
iOS users can also upgrade manually with the firmware files, but you’ll need the latest iTunes (v10.7) installed, before you proceed to a direct firmware update with IPSW.
