We all do so many different things within a day that sometimes it can be overwhelming. If you are an iPhone user, you can make your day a little easier with the use of Siri. We assume many of you are Apple fans. However, if you prefer Android, check out our other post here.
Siri lets you set reminders, timers and alarms. Plus, you will never have to ask for directions again. Siri also has the answer to many of your common questions. You can do calculations, translate a sentence and check facts. Reminiscing about a time when you could actually take a vacation? Well, Siri can pull up those photos from back in 2019. You can activate Siri by pressing the home button and saying, “Hey Siri”. If you aren’t familiar with the voice command feature, it is very simple to use.
Everyday questions. Have some fun!
Start off your day on a good note and get a jumpstart on things with Siri. You can find out the weather, traffic and set a reminder for that dentist appointment later in the day. Siri can even let you know when you need to leave home based on current traffic conditions! Crazy right?
Let’s look at a few of the best Siri Commands we tested.
- “Do I need an umbrella?”
- “Search the App Store for [name of app/category].”
- “How do you make French toast?”
- “Remind me to call [name] tomorrow for her/his birthday.”
- “Find notes/email about [say keyword related to search].”
- “Post a message to [name of social media].”
- “What’s the name of this song?”
- “Turn on do not disturb.”
- “Facetime [name].”
- “Remember that I parked the car in section [name/number].”
Siri can handle all the basic tasks as well. For instance, Siri can take a selfie, mute your phone call, open an app, or even send an email for you. Siri can be a great way to start your day. You can ask about the morning news too.
Having a hands-free experience on your iPhone can allow you to follow the recipe without getting the ingredients everywhere. You can make a call safely while driving too. Plus, with most states having hands-free rules while driving, you can simply say “Text Ashley I’m on my way”. You can even ask for the nearest location of a business. Have a toddler in your life that asks “why” all the time? Siri might just have the answer. Need a laugh? Just ask Siri “What does the fox say?”. The possibilities are almost endless.
Using Siri is very easy. In fact, when you begin using iPhone commands you will wonder why you waited so long. So, while you’re waiting on that cup of coffee to brew, why not start a conversation with Siri. You’ll be glad you did. It’s handy for so many tasks and everyday questions.
