    Siri Will Correct You If You Call Caitlyn Jenner By Her Old Name

        If you're researching Caitlyn Jenner by asking Siri to do the Googling for you (lazy much?!), then you'd better call the reality star by her real name.

        Before you write off Siri as just the sassy voice that lives inside your iPhone who cuts you deep with her snark, wait until you hear about this. Yes, we know she will go on a rant about how you have no friends if you dare ask her for help with a simple math problem. And yes, if you ask her to play a fart noise, she'll play a Rihanna song for you, which makes us wonder if she has a weird, deep-seeded hatred for the singer. But if you try and call Caitlyn Jenner "Bruce," Siri will rightfully shut you down.

        Tumblr user LastNovember4 recently posted screengrabs of Siri correcting her when she asked a question using Caitlyn Jenner's previous name, Bruce Jenner, noting how awesome it was to see the Apple assistant make the change.
    • For example, if you ask Siri: "How tall is Bruce Jenner?" She will answer: "Caitlyn Jenner is 6'2'' tall."

      And if you ask for Bruce Jenner's "real name," Siri will gladly give it to you: "The full name of Caitlyn Jenner is Caitlyn Jenner."

      Thank you, Siri, for correcting people. Now let's work on not being a cold-hearted sass-master when we ask if you love us. Baby steps.
    • (In June, Caitlyn Jenner chose to identify publicly as a woman and E! News will refer to her using female pronouns. In stories published before this date, she was referred to as Bruce Jenner and male pronouns were used.)

    Rich from Covino and Rich tried it and it didn't work. Spot suggested that he may need to update his phone.

    Ask Siri who won the gold in the decathlon in whatever year that was. I would, but I forget the year.
