Asking Siri to turn rumored iOS 10 night mode on delivers intrepid response

Asking Siri to turn rumored iOS 10 night mode on delivers intrepid response
We've been hearing about the inevitablity of a new, "dark" iOS mode that is coming with today's iOS 10 unveiling for a while now, but so far we didn't have much tangible info to corroborate on the matter. Well, it's Siri again that spills the beans about another new iOS 10 feature that is possibly in the pipeline.

When asked to switch dark mode on, Siri now replies that it apologizes, but it's not in her prerogatives to change that setting. The news here is that Siri refers to such a dark mode setting at all, instead of uttering something in the lines of "I don't understand," which is the go-to answer when there isn't such a mode present. 

It looks like Siri's algorithms are being updated for the grand iOS 10 unveiling today as we speak, so we will be all ears to check if Apple indeed announces a darkened interface overlay for those late night reading sessions.

apple is wellknown for slowly leaking and making rumor of their own product.. even if the release date still far away.. that way they'll have constant supply of "apple article" for all year round

Umm... Intrepid: adjective 1. resolutely fearless; dauntless: an intrepid explorer. I think the writer needs an English lesson because that makes no sense. Perhaps "Intriguing" is what was meant, maybe?

Insightful comment. Every time I've used Siri it's worked fine, maybe you've got a speech problem?

waiting for PA to comment on the new windows NFC tap to pay mobile wallet, verified working on a device via bank of America card.... Back on topic, come on siri give us more secrets, I could have swore that she answers this type of thing in jest. Do you think they would have updated siri first? Maybe, would be about as clever as they have been lately.
