Updated 22 December with Westworld-themed questions to ask Siri

 

It turns out that even Siri is a fan of the HBO hit Westworld, offering a number of themed responses to popular phrases in the show. You can tell Siri to "cease all motor functions" and you should get a response similar to the robots in the show. That's not all though, as saying phrases including "doesn't look like anything to me" or "these violent delights have violent ends" (even though it's originally from Romeo and Juliet) will prompt Westworld-themed responses. 

 

Pokémon Go has taken the world by storm and even Siri seems to be playing it. Ask Siri a question about the game, such as "Do you like Pokémon Go" and you'll get one of a series of responses. We won't spoil it – ask for yourself to see what Siri says – but our favourite is "Confining virtual beings inside powerful devices makes me feel funny for some reason."

 

We've discovered that Siri has a new talent. Say: "Beatbox"

And make sure you've got the volume turned up to hear the response. It's fantastic.

 

Star Wars fan? Say: "Siri, I am your father"

What is zero divided by zero?

It's not really what's displayed on screen, but what Siri says in response... Give it a go!

On rare occasions, setting early alarms can be quite amusing. Siri might say "I set an alarm for 6am, don't wake me up." For example.

Roll a die

Who's your daddy?

Make me a sandwich

Testing, testing

 

After a holiday period has ended, Siri will no longer answer seasonal questions!

Here are some of favourite past questions:

What should I wear for Halloween? / What should I be for Halloween?

You'll get a variety of answers for these two question - such as:

"Just be yourself, pumpkin." / "Whatever you've always wanted to be." / "The scariest thing I can think of: A human hypothetical question." / "I was thinking about a spiral galaxy, but I can never find one in my size." / “I’ll go as your plus one, and your plus 2, and plus 3, and plus 5.” / “You could go as an eclipse. Just dress in black and stand in front of things.”

Among many other responses!

Back to the Future Day

Say to Siri "Happy Back to the Future Day" and you might get one of the following responses (we won't give away all of them!)

"Let me know if you need airspace directions for your hovercar"

"I'm looking forward to watching Jaws 19. I'm not sure it'll beat Jaws 8: Robo-Jaws though.

Is Santa real?

Siri has a few different responses to this one, so ask a few times. Here's one of our favourites.

Also ask:

Where does Santa live?

What should I get my (sister, husband, friend, mum, dad, wife etc) for Christmas?
