Set up and use Siri

Here's how to set up and use Siri on an iPad with Retina display:

  1. From the Home screen, tap Settings.
  2. Tap General.
  3. Tap Siri.
  4. To activate Siri, toggle the On/Off switch to the On position.
  5. Tap Enable Siri.

That's it - Siri is now ready to use on your iPad with Retina display.

To use Siri, hold down the Home key until the microphone appears on the screen, followed by a beep. Now you can ask Siri a question, and await the answer.

As well as asking questions, you can ask Siri to call friends, remind you about important dates and meetings, send text messages, set alarms and a whole stack of other fab things.
