Since Apple introduced Siri to the world in 2011, it has been helping iOS users schedule meetings, find places to eat, take them to the nearest cafe, and remind them to complete certain tasks on time. Siri is pretty much a whole package, but it’s also just a computer. However, you can make him more approachable by saying where you work and live, who your family is, and even how to pronounce your name.
By doing this, you can make your commands much simpler by saying things like “call my dad” to Siri or “guide me home” if you’re in the middle of nowhere. Saying these things is much more natural than saying “Call Bob Smith” or “Go there.” [your home address]” Here’s how to get Siri to recognize all your personal information to give you a personalized experience.
Tell Siri About Your Family
You can set up your contacts so your phone knows who your mom, dad, and any siblings you may have. You can enter them all manually in the Contacts app, or save yourself some time and just say it to Siri. Press and hold the Home button until Siri pops up and then say something like “Bob Smith is my dad”, or if you’re like me and your dad’s name is “daddy” in your contacts, just say “Daddy is my dad.” It will sound strange, but once Siri has set it up, you can easily call her Siri your dad. Do this for all your family contacts. You can even let Siri know if you’re married by saying, “Jane Smith is my wife.”
From now on, you can give Siri commands like “Message my wife” or “call my dad”, making it easier to reach your loved ones without lots of awkward dialogue frictions getting in your way.
Set Your Home and Work Locations
It’s a good idea to set your home and work locations to make it easier to get directions to your home or to set a location-based reminder when you arrive at work. Unfortunately, you can’t tell Siri to set your home and work locations, so you’ll have to do this manually by tapping your name in the People app and adding addresses for your work and home locations. After penning them, though, he goes to the races.
You’ll be able to give Siri commands like “take me home” or set reminders like “remind me to get the mail when I get home”. You can also set location-based reminders for when you’re leaving home or work, so a reminder like “remind me to pick up groceries when I leave work” will set a reminder to ring when your phone sees you leave work. , based on your GPS location.
Tell Siri How To Pronounce Your Name
Siri understands the English language quite well, and this includes proper nouns like nouns. But not everyone has a common name like Mike, Bob, Bill. If you have a difficult-to-pronounce name, you can tell Siri how to pronounce it correctly.
When Siri mispronounces your name, simply say “that’s not how you pronounce my name”. Siri will then ask for the correct pronunciation and will say your name back to you in three different ways so you can choose the best one. If all else fails, just make him call you Sexy.
