Siri is not just one of Apple’s long list of features but it’s a handy tool with a multitude of potential uses. Siri not only uses voice as the medium of control for your Apple devices, it is actually smart enough to make sense of the context and deliver intelligent results. This brings ease of use and functionality together in a blend that is just hard to overlook.

Here’s how to utilize Siri for some basic operations.

How to call a contact with Siri

Step 1: Press and hold the home button, or say “Hey Siri.”

Step 2: Tell Siri whom to call, for e.g “Call Dad”

Step 3: If the contact has more than one number, it will ask you which number to call. For e.g., ‘Work’ or ‘iPhone’

The call will take place once Siri is prompted.

How to send an iMessage or SMS with Siri

Step 1: Press and hold the home button, or say “Hey Siri.”

Step 2: Tell Siri what you want to text and to whom, for e.g., “Text Heather I will be late for dinner.” If you don’t mention the relationship immediately, Siri will ask you for the contact or relationship. You can provide a phone number, contact name, or iMessage-associated email address.

Step 3: Siri will now ask you to confirm the message. Tap or say ‘Send’ if you are satisfied with the message or say ‘Change it’ to redictate. You also have the option to abandon the message by saying ‘Cancel it.’

How to send an email with Siri

Step 1: Press and hold the home button, or say “Hey Siri”.

Step 2: Tell Siri you want to email and to whom, for e.g., ”Send an email to Heather.” You can specify which account if the person has more than one email address, for e.g., “ Send an email to Heather at work.” You can send the email to more than one recipients by saying,  “Email Chris and Bobby.”

Step 3: Tell Siri the subject of your email.

Step 4: Tell Siri the content of the mail.

Step 5: Tap or say ‘Send’ to send the email.

And there you go. That’s how you get SIRI to call, message, or email anyone you like in your contacts. If you’d like us to create a tutorial for anything specific, let us know in the comments below or shoot us an email!
