    Over the weekend, I was playing with Siri, when I asked how long until my birthday. Even though my birthday isn't until December, Siri told me it was only 2 months away, and then showed the date range ending in September. (I checked my calendar, and there isn't even anything on that date.)

    Anyone had this issue? Seems really strange. (I'm on iOS 7.1.2.)

    I'm not able to reproduce this on my iOS 7.1.2 installation. It gives me the correct date and time remaining.

    I found a place in the Dev Center to report bugs, so I submitted a report. Just out of curiosity, is there a public-facing form you know of?

    This may sound obvious, but have you all actually entered your birthday in your contact information? Not the calendar, the contacts app. Siri correctly reports mine.

    Yes, that's why Siri shows my correct birthday when it pulls up my card, as shown in the screenshot in the OP.

    Siri doesn't even know my birthday on my iPad. (Never entered it in contacts) She still thinks its in 2 months 8 days lol. Clearly this is the iPhone 6 birthday. That might as well be my birth day :D

    Siri wished me a Happy Birthday when I asked "When is my Birthday?" on my actual birthday.

    Ooops. When I worded the question again differently, I got the same old response.
