This is an easy-to-read For Dummies title, that will teach you everything you need to know about Siri plus loads more of information. First introduced in the iPhone 4s, it's one of Apple's newest innovative technology.So what exactly is Siri? It can be best described as a personal assistant inside your iPhone that is controlled by your voice, making productivity much quicker.You can fully customize Siri to understand where you live, who your parents are, and what you prefer to be called, and Siri will respond accordingly. Once Siri knows more about you, you can ask for directions home, or to text dad.Setting up appointments is easier now then ever with Siri as your assistant, all you need to do is tell Siri when and where, and the reminder or alert will be set in your phone in a snap. Just ask Siri questions like "What does my day look like?" and she will quickly give you a list of your reminders. Just as any other assistant might do.Since Siri has GPS built inside, you can set reminders to alert you before departing or when arriving at a certain destination i.e. "Remind me to set the oven to 375 when I get home" or "Remind me to pick up dinner when I leave the office"Having built in GPS is also helpful when you need to get directions or find the nearest banking center. Just ask Siri for directions or an address to the places you need to get to, and she will locate your coordinates with step by step directions on how to arrive at your destination.Siri can also set up, change or cancel any alarms or reminders, all you have to do is tell Siri what you need. If Siri is lacking any information, she will simply ask for what is needed to confirm the task you need to perform.
