Tired of Siri egregiously mispronouncing the names of contacts, places, and events on your schedule? Turns out it’s willing to learn.

Simply say, “Siri, that’s not how you pronounce …” and Siri will ask you to record the correct pronunciation for next time.

We know that Siri can come off as a bit of a know-it-all so hopefully it's gratifying to inform her of her mistake.
