The Siri feature on your iphone can be an incredibly useful tool for accomplishing tasks hands-free. From sending text messages to setting reminders, there are tons of things you can do with Siri to help make your life easier. In this article, we’ll walk you through how to use Siri on your iphone 12 and some tips for getting the most out of it.

Activating Siri

The most common way to activate Siri is by saying “Hey Siri” or pressing the button on the right side of your device (or the Home button on older models). However, you can also summon Siri by long-pressing the home button or using the AssistiveTouch feature on your device. Siri will then display her icon on the screen and you can ask her whatever you need.

With iOS 14, Apple improved Siri in a number of ways. For example, now you can get Siri to give you shortcut suggestions that you can use in your Home screen or Today view. This includes things like launching your favorite app or opening Maps with just a few words. Siri also has new functionality that lets you share your ETA with someone else via a message, email or in Apple Maps.

Other improvements include enhanced voice translation that works in more languages and no longer requires a connection to the internet. In addition, you can now have Siri announce your notifications to other Apple devices such as Apple Watches and HomePods in an intercom-like mode.
