If you are an iPhone or iPad user, you would have definitely heard that the Siri has been predicting the end of year 2020 in a day. Many iOS users are shocked over the prediction in the middle of the COVID-19 crisis all over the world. However, we did some investigation and have come up with the truth behind it. Here it goes,
Siri, the iOS AI works on a 24 hour clock format. So it understands 2020 as 20:20 which is 8:20PM. Now whenever you ask Siri, “Hey Siri, how long untill 2020 ends”, it gives back the response based on the time and not the year.
Here, we tried using the word “year” in the question, and everything came out correct. It said 8 months. So nothing to worry and there’s nothing spooky about Siri’s answer and by all means it is not a prediction.
