What Kinds of Questions Can You Ask Siri?
The beauty of Siri on your iPhone is that you don't have to follow a designated protocol when talking to her. Asking, Will I need an umbrella tomorrow? (which Siri heard as Well I need . . .), 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 tap on any of these examples to see even more samples.
Here are some of the ways Siri can lend a hand, um, voice:
Phone: Call my wife on her cell phone.
Music: Play Frank Sinatra.
Messages: Send a message to Nancy to reschedule lunch.
Calendar: Set up a meeting for 9 a.m. to discuss funding.
Reminders: Remind me to take my medicine at 8 a.m. tomorrow.
Maps: Find an ATM near here.
Mail: Mail the tenant about the recent check.
Stocks: What is the Dow at?
Web search: Who was the 19th president of the United States?
WolframAlpha: How many calories are in a blueberry muffin?
Clock: Wake me up at 8:30 in the morning.

Trivia: Who won the Academy Award for Best Actor in 2003?
