Siri is the intelligent personal assistant that helps you get things done just by talking. Siri understands natural speech, so you don’t have to learn specific commands or remember keywords. You can ask things in different ways. For example, you can say “Set the alarm for6:30 a.m.” or “Wake me at 6:30 in the morning.” Either way, Siri gets it.
Note: Siri is available on iPhone 4S or later, and requires Internet access. Cellular data charges may apply.Siri lets you write and send a message, schedule a meeting, place a phone call, get directions, set a reminder, search the web, and much more—simply by talking naturally. Siri asks a question if it needs clarification or more information. Siri also uses information from your contacts, music library, calendars, reminders, and so forth to understand what you’re talking about.Siri works seamlessly with most of the built-in apps on iPhone, and uses Search and Location Services when needed. You can also ask Siri to open an app for you.There’s so much you can say to Siri—here are some more examples, for starters: Call Joe Set the timer for 30 minutes Directions to the nearest Apple store Is it going to rain tomorrow?
