Siri may be able to keep a secret, but once word gets out, just try to stop it from sassing you about it.
Apple’s digital assistant is now chock full of sass in the aftermath of the company’s event today, at which it revealed new models of the iPad, iPhone, and Apple TV.
All you have to do is activate Siri on your iPhone, Apple Watch, or iPad and ask the virtual guide if “anything interesting happened today.” It will respond with a bunch of different answers of varying degrees of snark.
You can check out some of the responses we got from our iPhones below. Topics include the helper’s aspirations to spin some tracks on Apple’s Beats 1 radio station, 3D Touch, and musings on time travel. We assume that that last bit is a reference to the same-named feature coming to watchOS 2 next week, which lets you spin the Digital Crown to check future appointments and events.
Either that, or Siri’s programmers could just be huge fans of the Back to the Future film series. And why wouldn’t they be?
ASiri was similarly excitable on the Apple Watch, particularly about its integration with the updated Apple TV streaming box that the company showed off today.
We received some of the same answers across devices, but the helperbot is definitely covering it all. This is a big change indeed from when Apple first sent out the invites to its briefing and suggested we ask Siri for a hint. All we could get from that set of canned responses was today’s date, and sure enough, that’s exactly when we found out about everything.
So hey, good call, Siri. Now please calm down; the words “peep” and “pop” have even less meaning than they already did.
