iPhone 5 gets approval from Brazil's telecoms body

updated 04:09 pm EDT, Tue October 9, 2012

Documentation hints at Portuguese version of Siri

The iPhone 5 has been approved for sale by Brazil's telecommunications regulatory, Anatel, MacRumors reports. A notice is said to have been posted yesterday, and lists Foxconn plants in Brazil and China as assembly facilities. Still left out of the document, though, is when Apple might plan to launch the 5 in the region. Apple is aiming at having the phone in 100 countries by December.

One thing that is included is a translation of the 5's manual, which hints that Apple is working on a Portuguese version of Siri. A section of the manual offers sample voice commands in Portuguese; this stands in contrast with the equivalent section in the iPhone 4S' manual, which uses English commands.

Siri is officially still in beta, and supports a relative handful of languages. So far these include English, French, German, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Italian, Korean, and Japanese.
