Bruce is dead to Siri.
Apple’s voice-activated assistant is getting with the program when it comes to users who still refer to Caitlyn Jenner as “Bruce.”
A day after Jenner’s first major public appearance since coming out as transgender, Siri will answer most questions about the Olympic champion by referring to her as a woman.
Users who ask, “What gender is Bruce Jenner?” get the response, “The answer is female.”
“How tall is Bruce Jenner?” prompts, “Caitlyn Jenner is 6 feet, 2 inches tall.”
Siri still gets tripped up on some questions. When asked who won the decathlon during the 1976 Olympics, Siri will show results that refer to “Bruce Jenner.”
Jenner accepted the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage at the ESPY awards on Wednesday. In a speech that brought a standing ovation, Jenner said transgender people deserve respect.
