  1. Sorry if I’m repeating myself but I wrote a comment and it disappeared. Anyhow, love this feature and using it since it’s inception, but hate that there is always some glitch with every iOS update. The other day I was trying to create an appointment and he (my Siri is a guy) kept asking me the same question over and over and would not create the appointment. Wanted to shoot him ?
