Three Siri Tips Worth Knowing

This one’s for you, iPhone and iPad people: Three quick Siri tips.

Most people hold down the Home button to make Siri start listening. A moment after you stop talking, Siri processes the command. But it’s actually faster to hold the button down all the time you’re talking and then release:

“Set my alarm for 10:30am.”

Second tip: When Siri mishears you, there’s no need to start over; you can tap directly on your transcribed command and edit it, then re-submit it to Siri.

Finally,  most people think that once they’ve asked a new question, the previous questions and answers are gone forever.

Actually, you can scroll up to see your earlier Siri conversations. Voila!
