(Cybertech) – If you have an Apple device, you’ve probably met Siri, Apple’s voice assistant. Siri is an interesting little assistant, sometimes useful, sometimes funny and other times, a sarcastic little so and so.
To most questions you’ll get a standard response with the information you need, such as the nearest supermarket. But there are a few questions you can ask Apple’s Siri and a few sentences you can say to your virtual friend from Cupertino that will trigger some hilarious responses – awesome Siri Easter Eggs just waiting to be found!
In case you didn’t know, an “Easter Egg” is a hidden feature inside software that, predominantly, just serves to amuse rather than be for practical benefit. If you know of any more that you’ve tried, let us know in the comments and share the fun.
