Apple has been building this new data center in North Carolina for a while now. We are now finally getting some speculation on why it is being built and why it is so damn big. TechCrunch is reporting that Apple may announce a partner ship with Nuance at WWDC this year. Nuance and Apple may have created voice technology to possibly allow for system-wide voice control throughout iOS, similar to how it is on the Android operating system
The data center will help process voice information faster and prevent the data from going through third-party services. So what does this all mean? Apple may be creating a cloud that can integrate into iOS 5 and bring new voice recognition software to the iOS devices.
