How to use Siri, the voice assistant in iOS 6 for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch

No prior setup is required but the more you use it, the more it will learn the characteristics of your voice.  It works with the majority of the inbuilt apps.

  • To activate Siri press and hold down the Home button, two beeps will be sounded and ‘What can I help you with?’ will appear on screen.
  • Start talking by asking Siri a question or ask it to perform a task.
  • After a pause Siri will action your request.

Siri is available on the following devices:

  • iPhone 4s or later
  • iPad 3rd generation or later
  • iPad mini
  • iPad touch (5th generation)
