Siri reporting wrong weather results, users say

The problem is said to crop up in connection with names of cities that exist in multiple states in the U.S.

Some iPhone users report having received wrong weather reports from Siri when they specify city names found in several states, according to MacRumors' forums.

"I live in New York and every time I ask it for the weather it gives me the forecast for New York, Texas," one user complained. Apple's own support board also includes a few posts on the matter. We've contacted Apple and will update the post when we hear back.

Last week Apple suffered a public relations embarrassment after users discovered glitches in the company's update to its iOS 6 mobile operating system, which was the first to include the company's mapping technology instead of Google's Maps app.
