You must’ve heard some people say, “Hey Siri!” and thought to yourself ‘whom are they talking to!’ Well these people were talking to their digital personal assistant on their device. Siri is an Apple voice command platform on iOS devices like iPad, iPhone, AirPods, Mac, Apple watch, etc. It allows users to connect with these devices without lifting a finger.

What Siri Can Do to Help You?

Siri aims to make your life easier by doing various tasks on your device through voice command. User can activate Apple’s voice assistant easily across all Apple devices with a tap, press or wake command and configure it to speak with several voices in many languages. It has access to every built-in app on an Apple device with which it provides the data that you need or perform the required task. Siri uses machine learning to execute your issued commands. Let’s discuss about how Siri can help you carry out a task, hands free:

  • Raise to Speak

Usually, Siri is activated by holding and pressing the Home button on an iPhone but you can also activate a feature called ‘Raise to Speak’ in general settings. Now you can bring your iPhone to your ear and command Siri to do a job (when the screen is light up). This feature will not work when you’re on a call.
