When it comes to the performance, it is considered as one of the fastest devices in many ways. 

Although the operating system is a thing that Apple can be proud of, the Siri’s operating has not been a smooth thing.

Although Google Assistant did not have the access to the specific services that count the dates, it has got the access to databases all across the internet. It means, Google has been able to provide the date related queries searched by the users.
