iOS7 Siri update makes users Rickroll instead of giving weather forecast!

London, Oct. 1 : Apple's latest iOS7's digital voice assistant Siri has a new way of answering to users' questions. If asked what the weather would be like for the day, Siri reportedly leads users to the Wikipedia entry for Rick Astley's cult 1987 track Never Gonna Give You Up.


Astley's hit number has become a basis for a long-running Internet joke known as Rickrolling, where unsuspecting users click on an interesting link, only to be taken to a video of Never Gonna Give You Up, Mirror reports.

Apple's Rickroll was discovered by one iOS 7 user who complained that he got the link to the song as an answer to 'what is today going to be like?'

It is speculated that Wikipedia entry was used as a placeholder for a weather and calendar service that failed to be switched over before being released to the public, the report added.
