Calls and Texts
Siri lets you stay connected without lifting a finger.
Siri can make calls or send texts for you whether you are driving, have your hands full, or are simply on the go.1 It can even announce your messages on your AirPods.2 It also offers proactive suggestions — like texting someone that you’re running late for a meeting — so you can stay in touch effortlessly.3
Siri is a faster, easier way to do all kinds of useful things.
Set alarms, timers, and reminders. Get directions. Preview your calendar. Siri can do it all without your ever having to pick up a device. Based on your routine, Siri can even anticipate what you might need to help you breeze through your day. And with Siri Shortcuts, you have an even faster way to access apps.See apps that support Siri Shortcuts
Siri can find the song you want to hear. Just ask.
Apple Music and Siri work together beautifully.4 Which means you can ask Siri to find a new song you’ll like. Put on a favorite album. Or even answer questions about bands you love. Siri can also suggest your favorite playlist when you arrive at the gym or start your drive home. Just tap to play.Learn more about Apple Music
Siri is a smart way to
run your smart home.
Now you can control your smart appliances, check their status, or even do a bunch of things at once — using just your voice. In the Home app, for example, you can create a scene named “I’m home” that opens the garage, unlocks the front door, and turns on the lights.Learn more about the Home app
on the Go
Siri has answers to all kinds of questions.
Quickly check facts, do calculations, or translate a phrase into another language. It’s as simple as asking. Even when you don’t ask, Siri works behind the scenes like a personal assistant. A great example is the Siri watch face, which serves up events, news, suggestions, and more right when you need them. And the new Siri voice uses advanced neural text‑to‑speech technology to sound incredibly natural, particularly when speaking longer phrases, like when reading the news or answering knowledge questions.
More Powerful Tasks
Siri can search, send, and book faster than you can.
It’s amazing how quickly Siri can find photos of your kids, locate your parked car, get you a ride, or unearth what you’re looking for from massive numbers of files. And the capabilities of Siri are optimized for each device, so you get the right kind of help, anywhere you are.
Shortcuts can do multiple things across multiple apps.
Now built into iOS 13 and iPadOS, the Shortcuts app gives you a library of
useful shortcuts to choose from, like
“Heading home.” Just say the words and Siri will text your ETA, start a playlist, and find the fastest route home — all at once. You can also create your own shortcuts to streamline tasks you do all the time.
Siri is always learning how to be even more helpful.
Machine learning is constantly making Siri smarter. And you can personalize Siri to make it even more useful. Choose to have Siri speak one of 21 different languages. Teach Siri who your family members are. And spell out unusual words so Siri can recognize them
in the future.
Siri keeps your information private and secure.
Siri is designed to do as much learning as possible offline, right on your device. Searches and requests are not associated with your identity — so your personal information isn’t gathered to sell to
advertisers or other organizations. And end‑to‑end encryption ensures that data synced between your devices can’t be accessed, even by Apple.
