How to use Siri (with sample and funny Siri questions)

Siri, the intelligent personal assistant helps you get things done. She can send your messages, check your emails, place calls and much more. There is no complete overview of all commands you can use in apple support page. That’s why we want to bring you list of most common commands for Siri. And of course, a lot of funny things to ask Siri.

 

How to start Siri

Start Siri using the home button

Hold down the Home button until Siri opens, then say what you need.
If you have an iPhone 6s or later, or an iPad Pro, you can say what you need as soon as you press the Home button. Siri listens while you press the Home button and responds even if Siri wasn’t on the screen when you started.

 

“Hey Siri” command

You can use Siri without pressing the Home button. Just say “Hey Siri” and ask your question.
If you have an iPhone 6s or later, or an iPad Pro you can use “Hey Siri” whenever you want. If you have an iPhone 6 or earlier, or another iPad or iPod touch model, you need to plug your device into power first. If you’re using a headset that has a remote or another type of Bluetooth device, hold down the center button or call button until you hear a chime. Then say what you need.
“Hey Siri” command must be allowed in the settings
