I was 20 minutes late and running to the train station.
Grabbing my phone from my bag, I quickly asked Siri to send a text message relaying my apologies to the friend I was meant to be meeting.
‘I don’t understand,’ was the response.
‘Siri, text Matt,’ I repeated louder and more clearly, holding down the menu button.
‘I don’t understand,’ she said again.
Argh! It wasn’t working.
Frustrated, something along the lines of ‘Well f*** you Siri’ came out.
A reply wasn’t what I was expecting; it’s a bot after all.
But it turns out Siri is a bit of a prude and doesn’t like bad language one bit.
Apple’s iPhone robot whirred into action, tapping out a response and voicing it at me.
‘Amy: watch your language!’
I couldn’t believe it. My own phone telling me off.
Of course, in the name of journalistic research, the Metro.co.uk team have been swearing at their phones all morning to test out what Siri does and doesn’t like.
If you shout general obscenities
What happens when you outright insult her
If you get a little more creative
What happens when you throw out the H or L word
And if you start asking stupid questions
Yes, there a whole load of hidden questions you can ask Siri and get some surprising responses.
Here are a bunch more – if you’ve discovered another tweet me @Amy_Willis or write it in the comments section below.
