Siri Offering New 'Give Us a Hint' Responses Ahead of Tomorrow's Event

When Apple sent out invitations to its September 9 event, the company also updated Siri with a range of humorous responses when asked about the event tagline, "Hey Siri, give us a hint."

Over the weekend, Siri's responses were updated to include a several cheeky new sayings, ranging from binary code to jokes about chickens crossing the road. Several of the responses also include a reference to "tomorrow," as we're now less than 24 hours away from Apple's event.

Given Siri's built-in event responses and the personal assistant's inclusion in the event tagline, it's safe to assume Siri will be a major focal point of tomorrow's event.

Siri integration is being built into the Apple TV and will be a main method of control, letting people search across multiple apps to find content, and Siri is also gaining new features in iOS 9, the operating system that will run on the to-be-announced iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPad mini 4, and iPad Pro.

Apple's event kicks off tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time, and we'll be offering live coverage on MacRumors.com and through the MacRumorsLive Twitter account. The event promises to be a major one, with Apple rumored to be unveiling two new iPhones, the iPad Pro, the iPad mini 4, the new Apple TV, new Apple Watch finishes and sport bands, and additional details on iOS 9 and watchOS 2.

You: "Hey Siri, give us a hint."

Siri: "Please confirm in-app purchase of 'hint' for 99 cents."

The binary code says: Gotcha

"Riddle me this, Riddle me that!"

Nothing significant yet

Just a shame that it doesn't matter how slowly or clearly I say it, 9 times out of 10 Siri hears "give as a hint" or "givers a hint". Maybe it's just British accents, or maybe it's just me.

Maybe Apple should give some recognition bias to phrases that make grammatical sense?


Even worse, it read mine as "Give me head". She replied with "Now now". :(

Do we think there's any chance of any other Siri improvements outside of what we've already seen in iOS 9? I quite like Siri and use it regularly, but OK Google and Cortana seem way ahead of her!


We'll see tomorrow. Apple may flip a switch and make SIRI behave like this girl:
