Siri has been updated with additional sports information, allowing the personal assistant to provide details about a range of tennis and golf events. Siri's new knowledge has been introduced just ahead of the Australian Open, which is set to kick off this weekend, and it joins other sports data Siri offers for baseball, basketball, hockey, and football.

As noted by 9to5Mac, Siri can provide information on both upcoming tournaments and past events from recent years, along with details on player backgrounds and statistics.

For tennis, the personal assistant can answer queries about the ATP world tour and the Women's Tennis Association, offering up data from 2016-2018. For golf, Siri can provide details about men and women's PGA and LGPA tours.

The new golf and tennis data available from Siri is accessible on iOS devices running the latest version of iOS, and it is also available on Macs, the Apple TV, and the Apple Watch.

Apple can’t just keep adding these skills one by one. Siri needs to have a better search engine and knowledge base for things in general.

Anyone else dreaming of opening WWDC or the next major event with a line like ’Good morning! We have a special guest with us today!’

-Good morning Tim (voice of Siri talks)
I'm happy to be here and will keep up with your presentation and jump in on occasion.

And then they present an educated and grown up Siri with actual understanding, intelligence and proactive skillset.


This trickle of some features working sometimes in some countries is just ridiculous.

Such a huge shame that Siri was in the scene first and ahead of Google, Amazon, or Microsoft by miles. Mac’s dictation was looking promising compared to others. Alexa wasn’t there. Google was just trying to solve dictation. And Microsoft was busy trying to stop iPads. Forget all of these giants though, even Samsung’s Bixby will probably be able to deliver some kind of better experience at some point. As a person who thinks ambient computing will be the next chapter of smartphones or PCs, it’s just sad to see Apple in this state.
