    I asked Siri how many days until X day and she continually gives me the wrong answer.

    I asked her how long until March 1st on February 22nd and she said 5 days when it is 7. I asked her how long until a event that is 12 days away and she said 10. I even asked her how long until noon February 24th (at 10 pm on the 22nd) and she said 19 hours.

    Is anyone else having this issue?

    I've just tried out asking Siri similar commands and it returned accurate responses.

    Well that's weird.

    This morning I asked her and she was correct (Assuming no hours). She said 5 days until March 1st and "1 week and 3 days" until March 6th.

    A couple of days ago I asked Siri "Is a tomato a fruit or a vegetable?" and it returned a list of restaurants close by.

    Siri saying the wrong responses.



    I know it sounds stupid, but have you verified that your time and date and time zone settings are correct? For the days, at least, it seems like she's consistently 2 days off and I wonder if somehow your date got set forward by two days.



    Along the same lines, maybe try to ask her what date or time it is now and see what she says.

    I did try that, calendar and clock app had correct info and when I asked Siri what time is it and what day is it, she gave the correct responses.

    Not sure the incorrect Time Zone would account for 2 days. Wasn't aware we had that many of them. :eek:

    The correct answer there should have been 38 hours, so she's not just off by an even 48 hours. There's more than just a bad date at play here.

    She seemed to somewhat fix herself on Monday, but as of 11:15 AM Eastern US Time 2/25/15 she thinks it is 19 hours until Noon 2/26/15. Some math reveals that she thinks it is 5 PM Siri time zone.

    I had a feeling that somehow GMT settings got messed up, but as of 11:15 AM Eastern, GMT time would be 4:15 PM. Which I assume Siri would round down to 4 pm and say it would be 20 hours.

    I checked in the calendars section of settings and Time Zone Support is off, and in General> Date and time, Time zone is set to Automatic "New York City".

    If I ask her what time it is, she will correctly say 11:25 AM. The only weird thing I noticed is that whenever I ask her "How many days until <tomorrow>" she will always respond with 19 hours, even if I ask her "How many days until Noon <tomorrow>"


    Edit: I just asked Siri at 5:40 pm how many hours until February 26th at noon. She replied with her standard answer of 19 hours.

    Edit 2: I pulled my iPhone 5 out of storage and asked Siri "How long until Feb 26" she returned an error. I asked her at 9:30 pm Eastern and she said 19 hours until Feb 27th.
