On the new iPad, Siri’s voice sounds a little different, since the iPad uses different speakers compared to those on the iPhone. Talking to Siri on the iPad is a bit different too. If you’ve talked to Siri before on the iPhone, you’ll be inclined to hold the iPad’s microphone up close. That won’t be necessary, since background noise will be filtered out perfectly. Naturally, the option to talk to Siri while raising your iPad like a phone has been removed from Settings. Imagine how that would look!
Before you can use Siri on iPad, you will have to turn on the virtual assistant first.
On your iPad, navigate to Settings > General > Siri
Turn to Siri on or off, tap or slide the button with your finger.
Out of a total of 9 languages, choose the language you’d like to use to talk to Siri. There are 4 types of English to choose from.
Choose “Always”, or “Handsfree”.
This is where you choose yourself in contacts, so Siri knows who you are, where you live and can associate you with other members of your family.
