Funniest questions to ask Siri

For most of us, Apple’s personal assistant, Siri, is the OG of A.I. smart device assistants. While its voice may be changing, it will remain an integral part of our daily routines. Siri isn’t all business though, and while it can create tasks, send messages, and do other useful things, did you know it also has a sense of humor? That’s right, Apple programmed its A.I. to make you laugh, which should help when it inevitably takes over civilization (kidding … we think). From asking about its friends to quoting song lyrics, here are the funniest questions you can ask Siri.

What iPhone do I have? How to find out your iPhone model number
Close-up of the iPhone SE 2022 and iPhone 14 Plus camera modules.

Since its landmark introduction in 2007, Apple has released 42 iPhone models, and with at least four new ones introduced every fall, the company is showing no signs of slowing down.

In all that time, Apple has made relatively few significant design changes. The company tends to stick with established designs for three or four years before changing things up, which can sometimes make it difficult to tell which iPhone model you have —  especially if you're getting a secondhand iPhone (with no box to offer a hint) rather than a new one.
