What Can You Ask Siri on Your iPad?
The beauty of Siri is that there’s no designated protocol you must follow when talking to her. Asking, Will I need an umbrella tomorrow? produces the same result as What is the weather forecast around here?
If you’re not sure what to ask, tap the circled i to list sample questions or commands. You can actually tap on any of these examples to see even more samples.
