How To Make Phonecalls With Siri

Written by admin. Posted in Phone

Siri can handle your phonecalls like a true digital secretary should. After having spent some time defining your relationships in the Contacts application, making calls on your iPhone even gets easier. Then you can say things like “call my sister at work”, or “call my mother-in-law on her cell”. This really beats having to go through your Contacts app every time you’d like to make a call. Faster calls with Siri!

Written by admin. Posted in Mail

As new email comes in throughout the day, there are moments where you’d wish managing email was a hands-free process. That moment has arrived now that Siri easily manages basic functions of the mail app in iOS. It can check your mail for new messages, check for new email from a specific person in your contacts. Siri helps you find existing mail messages in your inbox, and you can have Siri compose new mail messages for you, and send it to a single or multiple persons in your contacts. Below are some tips on what to tell Siri to have it handle mail in iOS.

How To Check For New Mail With Siri

Tell Siri:

“Check my email.”
“Any new mail messages?”
“Any new messages from my mother?”

How To Reply To Mail Messages With Siri

Once Siri is showing you all new mail messages in your inbox, telling Siri to “reply” will make you reply to that latest message.

Checking Prices In The Apple Store App With Siri

Written by admin. Posted in Apple Store, Siri Apps

Once you have installed Apple’s own Apple Store app on your iPhone 4s or iPhone 5, you can check out prices of Apple products by asking Siri. You can only check out the prices of Apple’s flagship products, like the Macbook Air, iPod Touch and iMac. Mysteriously enough, asking for the price of a new Mac Pro doesn’t make siri launch the Apple Store app…

You can ask Siri to go buy you a new iPad but fortunately, that command will only open up the Apple Store app. Nothing else will happen. Imagine the consequences if Siri actually would perform that task!

To check prices for Apple gear,

Ask Siri:

“How much does a new mac mini cost?”
“How much for a new Macbook Pro?”
“The new iPod Touch, how much is it?”
“How about a new iPad?”
“Buy me a new Macbook Air.”

“Find reminders about doctor.”
“Siri, any reminders today?”
“Any reminders for this week?”

How To Make Lists In The Reminders App With Siri

Another cool way to use the Reminders app is to make reminder lists. The only drawback is that for now, creating a new list will have to be done by hand; Siri can’t create reminder lists for you yet. Once you’ve made a new reminder list and you’ve given it a name, you do get to ask Siri to add items to your reminder list. This makes it easy to make a shopping list, a workout schedule, or a to do list where you can check off the items you have completed.

To make a new reminder list, open the Reminders app in iOS 6.

  • Tap on the top left icon to view your lists.

  • Give your new reminder list a name.
  • Tap ‘Done’.

The resulting workout list:

You can check off completed reminders by hand in the Reminders app. Siri can’t do that for you, yet. Once checked off, the completed reminder will appear under ‘Completed’.

Easy does it!
