What is Siri?

Siri is Apple’s latest feature for iOS. Siri is a new app that will be included with the iPhone 4S. Unfortunately, it won’t be available for any other iOS devices (see here for more info). Siri let’s you control your phone with your voice. Instead of typing a message or look something up on wikipedia, you can just ask Siri to do it for you.

Here are just a few things you can ask Siri to do:

  • Call someone
  • Play a Song
  • Ask for the weather
  • Ask for information - like a restaurant
  • Send E-Mails
  • Schedule a meeting
  • or set an alarm

Here’s an example:


“Any good burger joints around here?” Siri will reply “I found a number of burger restaurants near you.” Then you can say “Hmm. How about tacos?” Siri remembers that you just asked about restaurants, so it will look for Mexican restaurants in the neighborhood. And Siri is proactive, so it will question you until it finds what you’re looking for.

Siri - Use your voice to send messages, set reminders, search for information, and more.
