Apple Siri’s Frightening Prophecy: Gates of Hades will Open on July 07 2014

Siri app lets you use your voice to send messages, schedule meetings, place phone calls, and more. You ask Siri to do things just by talking the way you talk. Siri understands what you say, knows what you mean, and even talks back. Siri is so easy to use and does so much, you’ll keep finding more and more ways to use it(Apple Inc.)

But what if Siri does something else?


An eerie news is circulating online about Apple’s alleged frightening prophecy being made by its Siri app. According to a post by, Apple Iphone’s Siri responded strangely whenever a certain date(July 27, 2014 to be exact) is being recognized by the app.

If someone inputs something like “What is July 27” or “What is July 27, 2014” on a Siri capable Apple gadget, it will give you a scary answer: “It’s Sunday, July 27, 2014 (Opening Gates of Hades).

Hades is an ancient Greek god of the underworld. Therefore, Gates of Hades could be referred to as Hade’s kingdom or in layman’s term, “Hell”. Don’t worry, this glitch doesn’t work for everyone who curiously tries to see the crazy Siri response.

There has been some speculations about Siri’s response. Some said that it’s just a hoax or a trick which intends to scare people or Siri users. While the website, Cult of Mac, said that it was just an iPhone glitch caused by iPhone’s Wolfram Alpha configuration, a chief driving force for Siri’s reactions.

As stated by Cult of Mac and several iPhone owners who posted on Apple Forum discussion, July 27, 2014 has something to do with Chinese Ghost month – when the Gates of Heaven and Hell opens. Others simply considers its relation with the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

I guess this is just an iPhone glitch that we should not take seriously. Even other phone brands malfunctions and produces eccentric outputs close to this. But if you happen to own an Apple gadget with a Siri app, you can try it just for fun and see for yourself if it’s real or not.
