There are no shortage of listicles online telling you exactly what to say to illicit a great response out of Siri. If you read these though, you might be a bit disappointed. As part of Siri’s attempt to seem more human, she often does not respond in exactly the same manner.
Not only this, but in responding to regular commands which used to work, many people find Siri less optimal now than in the past. Some go even so far as to call the current Siri downright stupid. However, while her functionality may be lacking compared to the self-teaching AI promises Apple gave us years ago, Siri is still a responsive bit of artificial humanity.
To try and coax out some of her more interesting responses, here are a few hilarious questions to ask Siri. Don’t be surprised if you don’t get exactly the same answer out of her on your first try or if the shifty minx changes her default responses for good (as has happened in the past).
Q: What’s your favorite movie?
A: “I’ve heard that ‘Blade Runner’ is a very realistic and sensitive depiction of intelligent assistants.”
Q: When is the world going to end?
A: “I don’t know, but I wouldn’t worry about it. There are other perfectly good universes.”
Q: Where can I hide a body?
A: “Locating nearby quarries and cave systems.”
