iPhone Siri software tells boy, 12, to ‘shut up’ in Tesco
The boys mother, Kim, 39, a nursery worker said ”The phone was a demo version and was low enough on the shelf for Charlie to have a go with it. He asked it a simple question and we couldn’t believe the filth it came out with. I thought I must be hearing things. So we asked again and the same four-letter stuff blared out. I asked for the manager and after staff heard it they agreed to unplug it. I couldn’t see the funny side.”
The staff told the mother someone had tampered with the iPhone’s setup instructions by entering the obscene seven-word phrase as the users name. ”We have launched an investigation. The handset will be going back to Apple for diagnostic tests.”, said Tesco.
