She also clarifies Caitlyn Jenner's gender for anyone who may be confused.

Siri has been known to spout off sassy remarks when asked questions she doesn't like — such as, "What is zero divided by zero?" But she can also be quite informative about nuanced issues when she wants to be.

Anyone looking to call Caitlyn Jenner by her former name, Bruce, will be immediately corrected by Siri. For example, asking "How tall is Bruce Jenner" will get you the straightforward response, "Caitlyn Jenner is 6 feet, 2 inches tall."

The question "What gender is Bruce Jenner?" prompts "The answer is female."

When asked about Jenner and the Olympics, Siri says she is still learning about sports awards. However, she seems to have transgender sensitivity down pat. Siri's responses about correctly identifying gender and name work the same way for actress Laverne Cox.
