WASHINGTON, Sept. 11 (UPI) -- Siri, Apple's virtual assistant, interrupted a reporter's Iran question at a White House press briefing to tell him she wasn't "sure what you want me to change."

Press Secretary Josh Earnest was fielding a question from a reporter Thursday about whether President Barack Obama was "upset" about the lack of Republican support for the Iran nuclear deal when the tell-tale sound of Siri's question acknowledgment tone interrupted the man.

"Sorry, I'm not sure what you want me to change," the digital voice said.

The interruption prompted laughter from Earnest and reporters, with one person in attendance noting: "That was on time."
