In cooperation with the Associated Press, Apple has enabled Siri to answer questions about the 2020 U.S. election.
Users will be able to ask Siri general knowledge questions about the election, as well as get up-to-the-minute information. Siri will be able to answer questions as to when a specific state primary will be held, as well as the results of a primary or caucus.
Apple’s virtual assistant will tell you the answer to your question, and will also show a link to a corresponding Apple News article when its available.
The feature began rolling out today, February 11, so some users may not have access to it as yet.
