Siri will get a little smarter with the next version of iOS.
The iOS 6.1 update will give the voice-command feature the ability to order movie tickets through Fandango, according to 9to5Mac.
Users can ask to get movie tickets for a specific film and location, and Siri will bring up a theater and showtime. Users can then click to purchase the tickets, which brings up the Fandango apps to finish out the transaction. If the device doesn't have Fandango, Siri will direct users to a link to download the app.
The feature is exclusive to the U.S., according to the report, and not all movie theaters will be part of the program. The report added that compatible theaters listed by Siri will have a small movie ticket.
CNET contacted Apple to confirm the report. We'll update the story when the company responds.
