iOS 12 landed at WWDC in Cupertino yesterday. If that doesn’t resonate with you at all, then you’re an Android user. Congratulations on choosing the world’s best-at-catching-up (and in many case overtaking) mobile operating system!
For those of us still clinging to Apple’s closed (but very comfortable) digital ecosystem, word is that instead of underwhelming us with new features we might use with our new HomeKit digital front lock or HealthKit posterial thermometer, Apple is instead focusing on making iOS 12 work as iOS 10 and 11 probably should have in the first place.
This promises faster app launches and more stability. Praise to our Silicon overlords, someone is actually listening!
To celebrate this sensible move, we’ll pay homage to some of the funkier Easter Eggs buried in Siri’s repertoire of responses.
Ask your iPhone or iPad a few of the following, and enjoy the fact that coming this fall, your iPhone will be even nippier at replying with similar light-hearted idiocy!
Siri, Do you have any pets?
Siri, How old are you?
Siri, What are you wearing?
Siri, Why do you vibrate?
Siri, Can I kiss you?
Siri, How do I look?
Siri, Do you like my new haircut?
Siri, Do you follow the three laws of robotics?
Siri, What is the meaning of life?
Siri, Where did I put my keys?
Siri, I need to hide a body
Sing me a song, Siri
And our perrenial favorite:
Siri, I see a little silhouetto of a man.
Enjoy – and more Android-orientated final articles in future issues, we promise!
