Siri is a personal assistant designed to answer questions, make recommendations, and perform actions by delegating requests to a set of Internet services. Siri can be activated by pressing and holding the home button on an iPhone or iPad.
Siri’s capabilities are limited to the services that have been integrated into it. These include contacting people via FaceTime or phone call, sending messages, searching the web, playing music from Apple Music or iTunes Store, making purchases from Apple Store or iTunes Store, looking up information in Safari browser, and managing calendars.
Siri is not a replacement for human assistants. Instead, it assists humans by getting rid of administrative tasks and answering questions at scale. However, this virtual personal assistant can do many things to make your life much easier.
How to use Siri for everyday tasks?
Siri can help you with everyday tasks, such as setting reminders, setting timers, and playing music. For example, Siri can be used to set a reminder for you. You can say, “Siri, remind me to buy milk tomorrow morning,” and Siri will set the reminder for you. You can also use Siri to set a timer for whatever period you want. For example, you can say, “Siri set a timer for 10 minutes,” and Siri will start the timer for 10 minutes.
Siri can create a list of what you need for a specific task, such as a grocery list, by asking, “create a grocery list.” You can also change this list by adding more items such as “add bread to my grocery list,” and Siri will create it for you. One great feature of Siri is its ability to translate words and phrases from other languages. This feature will be handy while traveling to ask for directions or a bill in the restaurant. When you ask Siri for restaurant recommendations, it sorts them by the ratings on Yelp. You can also choose a specific type of food, like “sushi,” to find places that serve that.
