Hey Siri! Learn to talk to Siri, the assistant on your Apple iPhone, iPad or Watch. We’ll also search the Apple App Store to find games and useful apps.

iPhone/iPad: SIRI and Apps Course Description

“Hey Siri. How do I learn about Siri?”

Answer: Take Apple Guru Jamie Pollock’s course teaching everything you need to know about Siri and iOS Apps!

To get the most out of your Apple iPhone or iPad, and take advantage of its wondrous capabilities, you really need to fully understand how to correctly use Siri and Apps.

Siri, which stands for “Speech Interpretation and Recognition Interface,” is the built-in personal assistant that helps you do everything easier and faster. In this course, we'll show you how to talk to Siri to achieve amazing things: make calls; send text messages and emails; set alarms, timers, and reminders; check the weather; answer questions and get recommendations; make a restaurant reservation; and so much more!

An “app” is an individual software program on your device. And, as the joke goes, “there's an app that”...for pretty much everything you could ever possibly want to do. But apps are only helpful if you understand the process of navigating the App Store to choose, download, organize, and use them.

If you’re looking for practical Apple courses for your iPhone and iPad, this one is completely essential! Because, as Siri loves to tell me, “You auto-complete me.”
