It is an artificial intelligence trained to interact with the user through orders: you say what result you want to see and the assistant gives you the answer. It’s quite easy, you don’t need to learn!

Why do we tell you how to use Siri? It’s simple: do not deprive yourself of a useful tool, the assistant has a series of essential functions and can control all the functions of your device.
To start using the robot, you have to turn it on. By default, it is activated when you first turn on and set up your mobile phone, but many people skip this step and then forget to do it again. Now is the time to rectify the situation!
Let’s get started figuring out how to use Siri on the iPhone 11 (or any other model). Open the settings of your device, find the section called voice assistant and enter.
You will see two options:
- Listen “Hi…”. This option is suitable for those who want to use voice activation: you will say hello, say the assistant’s name and it will make them appear and start interacting with you.
- Call with the side button / button “Home”. This option is for those who don’t want to use their voice, but are willing to call the assistant with the push of a button. Option “Home” it is used on smartphones with Touch ID and on devices with Face ID you must press the button on the right side.
Chosen one? It’s up to you to decide how to use Siri on your iPhone 12/11/other models. Think about whether it is more comfortable to say a name or press a button. Remember that you can activate both options at the same time to make interaction even easier.
It is important: If you turn on voice activation, you have to go through a simple setup. You only have to say the phrases that appear on the screen, so that the robot understands you and remembers you.
You have already activated the assistant and even understand how to use Siri on your iPhone: you have to call/click on its icon and then start talking. Let’s not lose sight of the simple adjustments that will help you “make friends” with the artificial intelligence.
1. Activate the option “With screen lock”if you want the robot to respond even if the screen is locked.
2. Find the section “Answers”.. Here you can select when the assistant will speak aloud and also enable/disable the subtitle display.
3. In the tab “Announcement of calls”. you can set when the assistant should or should not voice incoming calls. The same goes for the section “Announcing notifications”.
Finally, you can choose the language (by default you will have the “Russian” option) and even change your own voice: male or female, it’s up to you! Instructions on how to change the voice, here
Now you’re all set to practice, let’s move on to how to use the Siri voice assistant on your iPhone!
