The digital voice assistant in Apple's products, Siri, is good at finding information and book appointments. Finding prostitutes is not her main sport. Due to a bug in the Siri iPhone users in Toronto who has been looking for intimate encounters sent to a bar in Little Italy.
According to the owner Alvin Acyapan the bar, however, free from prostitutes. In an interview with the Toronto Star he says that ever since he opened in 2016, he has received strange calls in the middle of the night.
He says that the bar he owns to be the worst place to look at – it is namely an e -sportbar.
"I thought people got the wrong number, or that it was a joke from someone who figured out our phone number," said Acyapan to the newspaper.
And the reason remained a mystery until then that one of the callers said that Siri given him the number.
"I can see the humor in it," said Acyapan. "I always thought of it as a funny anecdote to share with my friends."
Although Apple Support now been informed of the problem passed people in search of hair lying still wrong. Every time someone asks for an escort or prostitute Siri sends them to e-sports bar. A possible reason is, according Acyapan, it merely distinguishes one letter from the word "esports" and "escorts", which can possibly cause confusion among Apple's digital voice assistant.
