David Price | April 24, 2015
Our complete guide to Siri explains how to use Siri, details all the Siri features and commands (including the new questions introduced in iOS 8.3) and helps you get more out of Siri on your iPhone or iPad.

There are a few collections doing the rounds of things that you can say to Siri, but many of them are from the US, and as we know Siri works a little differently in the UK (although the fact it works at all is remarkable compared to other voice-activated systems).
