Learn how to use the virtual assistant Siri to help you get things done on your iPhone.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to:
• Use Siri
• Change Siri settings
Siri lets you use your voice to send messages, schedule meetings, place phone calls, and more. Siri is the intelligent personal assistant that helps you get things done just by asking. But Siri isn't like traditional voice-recognition software that requires you to remember keywords and speak specific commands. Siri understands your natural speech, and it asks you questions if it needs more information to complete a task. Dictation is now processed on Apple Watch, making requests faster and more reliable. Run shortcuts you’ve created on your iPhone. You can even add them as complications on your Watch face. You can even get spoken translations from Siri. It’s as simple as raising your wrist and asking “How do you say hello in Japanese?"
1. To ask Siri something, press and hold the Digital Crown/Home button until you see the Siri icon at the bottom of the screen.
Note: To enable or diable Siri, from your paired device, select the Settings app > Siri & Search > select the Press Side Button for Siri switch. Select the Allow Siri When Locked switch to enable or disable Siri on the lock screen. For more information, please visit Use Siri on your Apple Watch.
2. You can ask Siri a question starting with "Hey Siri" without having to hold down the Digital Crown/Home button.
Note: To enable or disable "Hey Siri", from the clock screen of your watch, press the Digital Crown/Home button > navigate to and select the Settings app > scroll to and select Siri > select the Listen for "Hey Siri" switch.
From the clock screen, press the Digital Crown/Home button > navigate to and select the Settings app > scroll to and select Siri > adjust settings as desired.
For more options, from your paired iPhone, select the Settings app > scroll to and select Siri & Search > adjust settings as desired.
Note: Your iOS device initially uses a compact voice for Siri. Your device will automatically download and install a more natural-sounding voice when you first connect to power and a Wi-Fi network.
