    I have an iPad with 3G and one with WiFi only. They are both of the same generation. I just downloaded and installed IOS 6 on each of them. Siri showed up on the 3G iPad but not on the WiFi only iPad.

    I did them both almost simultaneously, the 3G was started a minute or two before the WiFi but the WiFi finished a few minutes before the 3G, like there was a bit more to download and install (Siri?) on the 3G. Is this the way is it is supposed to be or did I do something wrong or incomplete with the download?

    Siri will work on a wifi only iPad 3, but only when it is connected to the Internet. You also have to make sure it is turned on. To check, go to Settings>General>Siri and make sure it's turned on.

    My WiFi is on. I don't have a Siri in Settings>General>. On my iPad with 3G there is a Settings>general>Siri, but not on my WiFi only iPad.

    It should be there, I'm posting from a wifi only iPad 3 on iOS 6 and Siri works for me. Does the software updates section in settings shos your iPad as being on iOS 6?

    How do I determine the difference between an iPad2 from an iPad3? They both look the same and yet they have a different model #. One is model MD363LL and the other is model # MC979LL. Does this indicate that one is second generation and the other third generation?

    The first model number is for a 16GB wifi+Verizon 4G white iPad 3, the second model number is for a 16GB white wifi only iPad 2.

    The iPad 2 must not support Siri. That could explain why one has it and the other doesn't. I wasn't aware they were different, I thought both were iPad 2s.
    Thanks for your expertise. Where did you get the information through which you can determine all these particulars from the model number?
