    Try saying "Remind me in two weeks to eat a banana" to Siri. It seems to create a reminder for today at the current time. Can someone confirm this? Siri no longer seems to understand weeks. What are those 100,000 Apple employees doing??

    So basically it happens to you as well, not that something like that would be normal (since it would be incorrect).

    It happens to me too. As you rightly said, Siri doesn't recognize weeks now (lol).

    Siri may not count weeks when accessing the reminder app?

    It does do "next week" correctly. It does do "on a specific date" correctly

    siri is the same for everyone, it's responses come directly from apple servers, they continually fix these kind of bugs

    In theory that is true and applies to many things that are related to Siri, but plenty of people have certainly had different experiences where something doesn't work at all or correctly for some while it works fine for others.

    Siri does understand weeks - just not for the Reminders app. Ask "What is the date two weeks from Friday?" and she gives the correct answer: "Friday, November 18, 2016."
