Siri limits music chart questions to Apple Music subscribers

New shopping icon in Apple App Store.

Siri, the digital assistant found on Apple’s iOS devices, has become a familiar presence for many, and a prompt (sometimes even mischievous) answer to questions you ask it has always been forthcoming. As the Christmas, Black Friday are approaching, basically the heavy shopping seasons, Apple has decided that it will include a new category in the App Store allowing people to discover e-commerce sites more easily. Of course, music charts are in fact part of the Apple Music app, so it’s not that strange that Siri might not have instant access to that info — but ordinarily that information would simply be looked up by other means, as when you ask the half-life of plutonium or what the weather’s like in Barcelona.

The introduction of the category will debut on Nov 5 before the shopping season will hit its peak during shopping seasons such as Black Friday, and Singles Day in China. Apple reasons that it was only necessary to make a separate category for shopping apps as the e-commerce sector has grown quite big on cell-phones as shopping on mobiles has taken an ever-soaring flight, and that most of the e-commerce traffic now comes from cell-phones and tablets instead of personal computers. According to app analytics, use of shopping apps on cell-phones has grown over 174% since 2014, which was faster and higher than for any other app category, and unsurprisingly 54% of holiday shoppers asserted that they will shop on mobiles, confirming the analytics.
