With Siri, you can send SMS messages and free iMessages if you and the person you are texting both have an Apple ID. But texting while driving is a real bad idea. It’s an even worse idea if you have iMessage and Siri on your iPhone and you’re not using it! Knowing how to send SMS and iMessages with Siri makes driving in your car a lot safer. Here’s how to properly text while driving, and keep your eyes on the road.
How To Text A Single Contact With Siri
Provided that the person is in your Contacts app,
“Send a message to Dana Templeton.”
“Text Dana Templeton.”
How To Text A Single Contact With Siri Efficiently
By dictating to Siri, you can give commands much more efficiently.
“Text Dana Templeton and tell her I love you exclamation mark. I will be home in 30 minutes.”
How To Text Multiple Contacts With Siri
Sending group messages is entirely possible with Siri.
“Send a message to Dana and Alicia.”
How To Text To A Phone Number With Siri
If the contact you’d like to send a message to isn’t in your address book, you can send a text to a regular phonenumber.
“Send a text message to 717-722-1963.”
How To Check For New Messages With Siri
To see if you have any new messages,
“Any new messages from Dana?”
“Any new text messages?”
“Any new messages?”
If Siri found a new message for you, it will tell you from who it is and read the new message to you.
At that point, you can either reply or have Siri read it again.
