Personalizing Siri


Siri is the voice-recognizing personal assistant who comes equipped with the iPhone 4S. It listens and speaks like a normal human being, and like any relationship, the better you get to know each other, the more rewarding the connection will be. Today, we’ll teach Siri a little bit more about yourself.


To begin, open the Contacts app.

We are going to create a contact for yourself that Siri can use. If you already have one, then you’ll simply need to edit your existing contact. If not, select the button in the upper right-hand corner.

Begin by filling in your most basic information such as your name and telephone number. Next, I’d like to direct your attention to a few fields and how Siri can creatively utilize their information:
  • Home and Work Address – Siri has a “geo-fencing technology”, so with the help of location services it can provide you with features based on your location. For example, “When I leave work, remind me to get milk.” To enable this option, select add a new address.
  • Phonetic First and Last Name – Siri can call you by name if you’d like, but here you can sound it out for perfect pronunciation. Select add field, followed by Phonetic First or Last Name.
  • Related People – This is probably my favorite Siri personalization trick. If you let Siri know who your parents, siblings, children, and spouse are you can reference them as such, i.e. “Text my mom that I’m running late.” To add a relationship, select add field, Related People, and the relationship. Now, press the blue arrow and select the corresponding contact from your list.



When you’ve finished filling out your contact information, we need to let Siri know that the contact we just created is, in fact, you.
Open the Settings application and scroll to General. Select the Siri option and choose My Info. Now, choose your name from the list of contacts. Your name will appear beside My Info.



Finally, let’s give it a quick test.



Now it’s your turn!
