How to Use Siri on iPhone 13 – Overview
Siri is a crucial feature for all iPhone users, and once again, this AI (artificial intelligence) is donning the high-res display of all iPhone 13 models.
Siri enables you to sort out your schedules and activate iPhone functions when you’re driving or away from it, allowing you to record your plans when the phone isn’t in your hand.
This review will look at how to use Siri on iPhone 13, although it’s pretty much the same on all iPhones. Keep in mind that this step-by-step process will only work on iPhones running iOS 15, the iOS version currently in the iPhone 13.
The Setup Process
Prior to using Siri on your iPhone 13, you’ll need to ensure that Siri is configured on your iPhone. The process of setting up Siri on iPhone 13 is relatively easy, and it’s as follows:
- Open the ‘Settings’ app and click on ‘Siri & Search.’
- Next, toggle the ‘Listen for Hey Siri’ if you’d like to use Siri with your voice.
- Then press the side button on your iPhone if you want to use Siri with a button.
- If your iPhone is checking for verbal commands uttering ‘Hey Siri’ will launch Siri and prepare your iPhone for you to ask a question or issue a command. Ensure you speak loud enough near your iPhone, although iPhones are good at picking up voices.
- You can activate Siri with a button instead of your voice on the iPhone 13. To do this, press the side button, and Siri will launch; now, you can ask it any question you have.
- If you have an older iPhone with iOS 15, the step above applies, but if the iPhone has a home button, press and hold the home button to launch Siri.
- If you use earphones with your iPhone 13, press the call button to launch Siri. If you use AirPods, you can launch Siri by saying ‘Hey Siri’ when wearing AirPods.
- Depending on which AirPods you use with your iPhone 13, you can launch Siri on AirPods with a click of a button. The specific button depends on the particular AirPods model. Check on Apple’s website to see if your AirPods model works with Siri.
- After giving Siri command or asking a question, you can either click on the ‘Listen’ or utter ‘Hey Siri’ again to ask another question or issue another command.
- Then click on the ‘Listen’ button to rephrase a question or say a portion of it. In addition, you can click on your request on the question to edit the text straight away.
- If you prefer to type to use Siri as opposed to your voice, go to the ‘Settings’ app and click on ‘Accessibility’ and click on ‘Type to Siri.’
- Once you launch Siri, you’ll see a text box where you can enter your commands.
Note: If you only want to use Siri in specific moments, you need to place your iPhone 13 on a surface face down. How does this help? This stops the voice assistant from listening to the wake phrase ‘Hey Siri.’ Even if you say it by mistake, it won’t wake while face down.
Troubleshooting Usage Problems
Check and Manage Siri Settings
Some iOS updates automatically dominate your iPhone’s settings. When this transpires, there is a prospect that some configurations and options can bring about system errors.
And the issue of Siri not working on iPhone 12 could be among those symptoms. So to fix this, check and ensure that Siri settings on your iPhone are set up correctly.
Perform a Device Reboot
Performing a restart or soft reboot on your iPhone can help eradicate various problems, such as minor symptoms that occur after downloading and installing updates.
This is also a method to clear the cache, to refresh applications and system functions after the latest platform change. Post-update bugs impacting Siri are eliminated by rebooting.
Refresh Your Internet Connection
Siri can implement both online and offline queries. To execute the former on your iPhone, you need to have a stable internet connection. As a result, there is a propensity for Siri not to function as intended if random Internet issues occur.
To fix this problem, try to refresh your iPhone’s internet link. There are many different approaches to doing this. You can utilize the Wi-Fi switch, Airplane Mode switch, and the power switch on the modem or Wi-Fi router you’re using.
As you can see, setting up and using Siri on any iPhone 13 model is pretty straightforward. In addition, Siri offers accessibility controls, such as being able to type Siri commands as opposed to uttering them. So overall, you’ll find Siri quite a handy tool on your new iPhone.
