How to call, message, and email your contacts using Siri


Siri is not only a voice control system for your phone, but it is also your digital assistant that remembers context and understands relationships, and only gets smarter over time. What this means is that you can tell Siri to call your husband or wife’s iPhone, and Siri will know who you’re referring to and what number to dial. And it’s not just phone calls that Siri can do. It’s emails and even SMS to any of your friends, family, co-workers, acquaintances, and more. Regardless of how you prefer to communicate, Siri makes it easier than ever before.

Note: You’ll first need to tell Siri who you are, because your established relationships will be added to your own contact card.

Establishing relationships with Siri is great for unique titles, or if you only have one person with that title. But if you have two brothers or two daughters, you’ll need to differentiate them with a prefix, such as “Older” or “Younger,” to avoid complications.
