My only complaint with this is that I often have no idea what day it is. I'd love it if it added the day of the week as well. "It's after midnight, did you mean today, Tuesday, or yesterday, Monday the Xth day."

I too have seen this a handful of times and thought, "Wow, that's really clever Siri!" only to realize a few seconds later that Oct 21st vs Oct 20th does not help me and I am still screwed. Then I cancel out and go look at the calendar day and then re-sirify it.

Then again I am not that smart.

Hint: You don't need to know the date to know which option to pick.

maybe you do if you're close to falling asleep.

I don't understand why so many people are taking issue with this and missing the obvious point. You don't need to know what the current date is. It's not asking you to schedule something in the past or in the distant future.

It's showing you the next two occurrences of the time you requested and asking if you want to be notified on the next occurrence of that time or the following one.

So why show something you don't really need? The day of the week makes things much more obvious.

You have a point. Fuzzier dates are often better. Perhaps it's a space constraint.
