Siri is continuing her tradition of snarky replies to questions about Apple events. Last year, ahead of the September release of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, iPad Pro, and 4th-generation Apple TV, users asking Siri to “give [them] a hint” about the event were met with replies such as “You’ll have to wait until September 9. I bet you were one of those kids who snuck downstairs to open presents early, weren’t you?” and “You’re cute when you’re desperate for information.”

This year’s Worldwide Developers Conference is no different – Siri is full of witty answers to your questions about the event.

iPhone users can now ask Siri questions about this year’s WWDC such as “what’s coming at WWDC?” or “what can we expect at WWDC?”, and Siri will answer. You may find that the answers, although humorous, aren’t all that helpful, however. “Not telling” is one short, but sweet answer. “Hello big ideas. Hello anything. Hello everything. That’s all I’m allowed to say right now,” is a peculiar one…

WWDC 16 Siri Response

Siri even has a Game of Thrones-related answer ready for you – “Neither mutiny, nor disassembly, nor zero battery will induce me to dishonor the oath I have sworn to secrecy. Sorry, I’ve been watching too much Game of Thrones lately.”

In April of this year, Siri began confirming the date for WWDC when asked – June 13th through June 17th in San Francisco, CA. Besides the date and location, nothing has been officially confirmed for this year’s WWDC, although many sources claim that it will be a “no-hardware” event, showcasing only software releases.

Apple is expected to unveil iOS 10, as well as new versions of watchOS and tvOS. OS X will likely see an upgrade, as well, and possibly a name change back to macOS. Siri herself is expected to be a highlight of the show, as Apple is expected to introduce her into macOS, and also open her up to third-party apps – think “Siri, call me an Uber”.

WWDC’s keynote kicks off this coming Monday, June 13th at 1PM ET/10AM PST. You can watch the event live at Apple’s website, or just stay tuned to iDrop News for updates.
