Siri. Your wish is its command.

Siri lets you use your voice to send messages, schedule meetings, place phone calls and more. Ask Siri to do things just by talking the way you talk. Siri understands what you say, knows what you mean and even talks back. Siri is so easy to use and does so much, you’ll keep finding more and more ways to use it.

It understands what you say. It knows what you mean.

Talk to Siri as you would to a person. Say something like “Tell my wife I’m running late” or “Remind me to call the vet”. Siri not only understands what you say, it’s smart enough to know what you mean. So when you ask “Any good pizza places around here?” Siri will reply “I found a number of pizza restaurants near you”. Then you can say “Hmm. How about sushi?”. Siri remembers that you just asked about restaurants, so it will look for sushi restaurants in the area. And Siri is proactive, so it will question you until it finds what you’re looking for.

It helps you do the things you do every day.

Siri makes everyday tasks less taxing. It figures out which apps to use for which requests, and it finds answers to queries through sources like Yelp and Wolfram Alpha. It plays the songs you want to hear, gives you directions and wakes you up. All you have to do is ask.

iOS takes dictation.

Here’s another amazing way to get things done: just use your voice. Instead of typing, tap the microphone icon on the keyboard. Then say what you want to say and iPhone listens. Tap Done, and iPhone converts your words into text. Use Dictation to write messages, take notes, search the web and more. Dictation also works with third‐party apps, so you can update your Facebook status, tweet, or write and post Instagrams.

Eyes Free.

Apple is working with car manufacturers to integrate Siri into selected voice control systems. Through the voice command button on your steering wheel, you’ll be able to ask Siri questions without taking your eyes off the road. To minimise distractions even more, your iOS device’s screen won’t light up. With the Eyes Free feature, ask Siri to call people, select and play music, hear and compose text messages, use Maps and get directions, read your notifications, find calendar information, add reminders and more. It’s just another way Siri helps you get things done, even when you’re behind the wheel.
