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.
