But there is a lot it can offer. So; Here are some of the Siri iPhone tricks that help you improve your phone usage experience.

Siri tricks you may not know لا

Ask Siri to play audio from almost any app

Even if you are not a user of the Apple Music app, you can ask Siri to play your favorite playlists on any audio app, you just need to ask Siri to play a track, band, vocalist, sheikh or reader on a specific app like saying: “Hey Siri Play Fares Abbad on Spotify.

You can even ask Siri to skip an audio clip, increase or decrease the volume, or pause the audio clip.

Use Siri without speaking

When you are in a public place and want to ask Siri about your schedule for the day. Here it is better to write to Siri than to talk to her, and you will get a written answer. To enable this option:

◉ Go to Settings.

◉ Then accessibility.

◉ Then scroll down and select Siri.

◉ Then activate Write to Siri.

Ask Siri to send messages through other apps

One of Siri's most useful features is its ability to send text messages or call someone. What's more, you can also send messages through third-party apps other than the Messages app.

For example, you can ask Siri to write a WhatsApp message by simply saying “Hey Siri, write a WhatsApp message to the person’s name.”

Siri will need permission to access app data. After that, you can just say the message, and Siri will do the rest. Not only that, but you can also ask Siri to call someone using another app like FaceTime, WhatsApp, or even Skype.

Set location-based reminders

Siri allows you to set reminders based on your location. For example, you can ask Siri to remind you to visit Zedd's house when you get to the office. You will then receive a notification of his visit as soon as you arrive at your office or the place you mentioned. To do this, you will first need to allow the reminders to access your location.

◉ Go to Settings.

◉ Scroll down and tap Privacy.

◉ Click on Location Services.

◉ Find and tap Reminders.

◉ Make sure to check Allow while using the app.

◉ You'll also need to add your office or home address to your contact card, so Siri will know when to remind you.

Teach Siri how to pronounce names correctly

Sometimes Siri doesn't pronounce a name correctly or can't locate one of your contacts because he doesn't understand you. And even Siri learns how to pronounce your contacts' names correctly. Here's how:

◉ Go to your contacts, and select the contact whose pronunciation you want to modify.

◉ Click Edit.

◉ Scroll down and click on Add Field.

◉ Choose “Voice First Name”. You can later choose Voice Last Name as well, if you want. A new field will appear below your contact's name. Write how the name is pronounced phonetically.

If you don't want to go through all your contacts manually, you can ask Siri directly how to pronounce the name. Just say "Hey Siri," then ask him to say how to pronounce the contact's name. Or form the letter for the Arabic language, and note the difference between “Ali” and “Ali.” The first will be pronounced correctly by Siri and the second will be pronounced by a preposition.

Use Siri to control your smart home

If you have gadgets in your home, you can use Siri to control them. Siri can control the lights, turn on the heating or air conditioning, turn on sockets, cameras, and more.

You'll first need to make sure that all your smart devices are compatible and listed in the Home app on iPhone and iPad. After that, you can use your iPhone, Apple Watch, or even HomePod to control everything.

Find photos and albums using Siri

Because Siri has access to the Photos app, you can find your photos with just your voice. You can ask Sirir to show you photos of a specific place, photos you took with someone, or a specific album. You can say “Siri, show me my pictures with (person’s name),” “Show me my selfies,” “Show me (album name),” or “Show me my pictures at (place name).”

Use Siri to find apps and games faster

You can also use Siri to search for apps and games in the App Store! You can ask it to find action games or instant messaging apps, and the App Store will automatically open and quickly search for what you've ordered. You can say the names of certain apps or ask something like “ball games in the App Store.”

You can laugh with Siri

Siri has a good sense of humor, try these commands:

"Hey Siri, tell me a joke."

“Hey Siri, zero over zero.”

“Hey Siri, tickle you.” Opening a T 😂😂😂, this point was discovered by my little daughter and I laughed a lot at it.
