after being on android since around 2011-2012 I have switched to IOS.   On the new Ipad basic model and Iphone 11  siri does not work.  Android google assistant worked perfectly.  Siri keeps saying I didnt get that try again.  After trying dozens of times I gave up.   Does siri work in NZ and its just me it doesnt understand or is it not supported in NZ. I know on my appe tv4 its not supported but thought would be on Iphone

Yes, Siri works fine on ios devices, (well as much as siri works at all)- but it should at least give you some answers


sounds like a setting is not set right

I use Siri often, but she/he does get some stuff wrong. 


It takes some time to "learn" how you speak. 




Strong accents are a no-go for Siri, as are colloquialisms.

Thank you. I guess I can keep trying for it to understand me. I am Kiwi born and bred so no "broad" accent
