Ask Siri How Late a Store is Open

If you need to know how late a store is open, just ask Siri, “How late is Burger King open?”, or whatever store you are looking for. If there is only one store it will show the results immediately, if not you will need to tap on the store you want to see the hours for. You can see when a store opens and when it closes.

Ask Siri to Find Photos

Forget looking through your Photo Library manually. You can now ask Siri to find photos at a location, at a time or in a album you made. The first two options work without manually taking action since your iPhone knows when and where your photos were taken.

Just open Siri and say, “Show me photos from Paris” or “Show me photos from two weeks ago.” You can also say a specific date. If you have an album you can say that album name.

Ask Siri to Remind You About What You’re Looking At

Have you ever been looking at a webpage, an email or a note on your iPhone and wished Siri could easily remind you to look at it later without the hassles of describing it or copying and pasting? With iOS 9 you can open Siri and simply say, “Siri Remind me about this,” with a location or date and time and Siri will add that specific item to your reminders and pop up with a link to that item at the right time or place.

Tip of the Day: Have Siri Tell You a Story

To get Siri to tell you her bedtime story, you need to be persistent. Say, “Tell me a story.” And Siri will typically say something like, “I’m certain you’ve heard it before.” So then ask again. She’ll say something like, “I’m sure I’ve already told you,” or “What, again?”


Set your home and work locations

Enter your home and work addresses in Contacts. That way, Siri can remind you to do things when you leave or arrive at either place

Change the way Siri pronounces a name

If Siri mispronounces a name, simply say “that’s not how you pronounce that.” Siri will ask you for the correct pronunciation, then say the name back to you three different ways so you can choose the one you like.

Teach Siri your relations

Tell Siri about your relationships, such as “Gloria is my wife” or “Jimmy is my dad.” Then you can say “Text my wife” or “Call Dad” and Siri knows who you mean.

Getting Healthy with Siri

How many calories are in [food item]?
How many grams of sugar are in [food item or beverage]?
How many calories are burned during [activity]?
How many calories are used in a [time] of [activity]?
How many calories are in [amount of something]?

Try asking Siri the following type of questions:

How many calories are in a cheese burger?
How many grams of sugar are in a can of Coke?
How many calories are burned in an hour of running?
How many calories are used in an hour of sitting?


Update Facebook, Google+ and Twitter With Siri

Siri might not be able to directly update your Facebook status or send a tweet, but there’s a workaround that can be handy. These social networking services can be updated via text message, and Siri is great at sending text messages. All you have to do is configure your accounts to accept updates from a text.

Activate the feature on Facebook by texting “Hello” to 32665. (Find codes for more countries and other details from Facebook help.) You will receive a text message with a link. Tap the link to confirm and add the code you receive to the Contact list. If you name this contact Facebook you can tell Siri to send a text to Facebook.

In Google+ navigate to the Settings and choose Set delivery preferences. Add your iPhone 4S phone number (choose don’t notify me or else you will receive incoming messages by text). You’ll receive a confirmation text message with a verification code. After you’re verified, add a new entry to your Contacts for Google Plus with the number 33669. Tell Siri to text Google Plus and your circles will see the updates. Find more details about Google+ and text messages from Google.

Sending updates to Twitter is similar, just text “START” to 40404. (Find codes for more countries from Twitter help.) When you receive a text from Twitter, send back your username first, then your password. When you receive the code, add this number to your Contacts under Twitter. Tell Siri to send a text to Twitter and it will become a tweet.


Create a Grocery/shopping List With Siri

Step 1. For starters, you must create a new list in the Reminders app. To do this, tap the list editor icon in the top left hand corner of the main screen (looks like three lines). Then tap the edit button, and select the Create New List option.

Step 2. Name the list whatever you want. For the purpose of this tutorial, I named the list ‘Grocery.’ Then tap the Done button in the top right hand corner of the screen.

Step 3. Now that the list is created, exit out of the Reminders app. Activate Siri and say, “add [milk] to the Grocery list.” Siri then confirms that you’d like to add the item to the list, and then does so. You can open up Reminders to view the list at anytime.
