#255 Hey Siri: iPhone and iPad Shortcuts

If you have an iPhone and/or iPad then you should be making use of Siri – the built-in personal assistant who can assist you in lots of different ways (or provide some entertainment).

Activate Siri by keeping your finger on the home key then speaking a command or on new models you may be able to activate Siri by just speaking out ‘Hey Siri’ (On other models you might just need to have your device on charge).

Check your calendar, look for the nearest coffee shop, get Siri to read out your emails, schedule an event , set timers, flip a coin, tell a joke are just a small selection of the 500+ commands that Siri can help with.
