Complete guide to Siri: How to set up Siri in iOS 9 & train it to recognise your voice

David Price | Oct. 26, 2015
Our complete guide to Siri explains how to use Siri, details all the Siri features and commands (including iOS 9) and helps you get more out of Siri on your iPhone or iPad.

Ask Siri about: Calendar

Meet with Simon at two o'clock.

Meet with Kate at noon.

Change my three o'clock meeting to two o'clock.

Cancel my two o'clock meeting.

Cancel my meeting with David.

Move my four o'clock meeting to tomorrow.

Create a meeting on...

Meet with Mum and Dad on Christmas day.

Create an event with my parents at Easter.

Ask Siri about: General Knowledge

Note: Siri uses Wolfram Alpha to provide stats and facts. Wolfram Alpha can answer questions related to mathematics, geography, chemistry, words and linguistics, units and measurements, and all kinds of things. Here is a good list of the types of information you'll find on Wolfram Alpha, which will also work in Siri. Interestingly the American version of Siri has an "Ask Wolfram" feature where you can specifically tell Siri that you're after Wolfram information, this doesn't seem to work in the UK yet.

How many calories in a banana?

Calculate 20 multiplied by 13.

What are the properties of gold?

How may people live in Japan?

How far is Mars from Venus?

This is a pretty comprehensive list of things you can do in the UK so far, we may have missed the odd thing but we'll add to this list and go. If you've found any useful things that Siri can do that we've overlooked please let us know on Twitter or add it to the comments.
