Some Chinese officials are furious at Apple's iPhone for apparently helping users have too much of a good time.

Chinese media say the complaints surround the iPhone's voice-activated personal assistant, known as “Siri,” which has been helping some users find prostitutes and brothels.

The Mandarin language version can apparently present users with as many as 15 options for this purpose.

The iPhone's readiness to help users find sex has been a hot topic on Chinese social media.
