While most uses of Siri likely lean more toward adding a reminder, making a calendar appointment or finding your iPhone, there are plenty of other use cases. When it comes to kids, this is especially true. Apple’s engineers might not have had children in mind while designing Siri’s “personality,” but they did hit a homerun with some kid-friendly responses. In fact, some questions even have multiple responses which will keep kids coming back for more. Here are some of the best questions kids should be asking Siri.
