This screenshot obtained by 9to5Mac (featured below) leads many to believe that the new iPhone 5 will include a fully-integrated voice control function. Called ‘Assistant’, it would likely implement technology from the app Siri, which Apple  recently acquired.

This feature would convert speech to text, use data stored on your device (such as location, contacts and calendar) to make recommendations based on where you are or when you are free, and use optional crowd-sourcing to improve the service over time.
