Apple’s Siri is a helpful assistant that can take care of many tasks with just a voice command. If you own an iPhone XR, you can easily access Siri without even touching your phone. Here’s how.
To activate Siri on your iPhone XR, you can either press and hold the Side button or say “Hey Siri” if it’s enabled on your device. If you opt for the latter, go to Settings > Siri & Search and toggle on the Listen for “Hey Siri” option.
Ask Siri a Question
Once Siri is activated, you can ask it anything. You can start with something simple like “What’s the weather like today?” or “What time is it?” Siri will then provide you with the answer verbally and on your phone’s screen.
Use Siri to Set Reminders
If you have something important to remember, you can ask Siri to set a reminder for you. Just say “Set a reminder for [time] to [task]” and Siri will take care of it.
Control Your Phone with Siri
Siri can also help you control your phone without having to touch it. You can ask Siri to turn on/off Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or Airplane mode. You can also ask Siri to increase or decrease the volume, take a photo, or play a song.
