Siri is a powerful assistant that can do a whole lot more than you might realize at first glance. Most people like to send texts and look up basic information via a Google search with Siri, but she’s capable of so much more.
The site Hey Siri should be a bookmark on any iPhone owner’s browser, as it contains over 600 commands you can give Siri in order to get stuff done. The site also dynamically shows you different ways to ask the same questions, such as “What day was 90 days ago? ” vs. “What day is in two months?”
Of course, with Siri coming to macOS in the near future, there’s even more reason to brush up on her commands.
Here are some of the highlights of Siri’s power:
- Download an app from the App Store
- Turn on Airplane Mode
- Use HomeKit to adjust your lights and much more
- Read your notifications
- Ask Siri to call you by a certain name
- Tell Siri she’s pronouncing a name wrong
- Call the nearest restaurant
- Play your latest voicemail
- Check for email from a specific person
- Show you tweets from a specific user
- Get the current time anywhere
- Change an active alarm to a new time
- Ask if a celebrity is still alive
- See how windy it is outside
- See what flights are overhead
- Roll a die
This is only a small sampling of what Siri can do for you. Have at it to find more!
