The first time Siri was unveiled was iOS 5 in October 2011. However, support for Japanese is available from the iOS 5.1 update on March 8, 2012. In short, the Japanese version of Siri will soon reach its 8th anniversary. However, people who do not use it for many years often do not use it. So, here are four ways to use it that people who don't use on a daily basis may find it useful.
<1> How to use alternative buttons when it is difficult to press and hold the side button
Instead of long pressing the home button, long press the side button to activate Siri on recent models. However, it is honest that it is a bit harder to press than the home button. An alternative is AssistiveTouch. AssistiveTouch is a translucent button that can be placed on the screen to assist in operation.
This completes the settings.
<2> How to ask Siri for text input
The biggest reason not to use Siri is that it's embarrassing to ask by voice. Then, the method of asking by character input instead of voice is recommended.
This makes it easier to use Siri at work and on the train. When started with "Hey Siri", it will be used by voice input as usual.
<3> How to perform more complicated operations with Siri
Siri is evolving year by year, but you can't ask for much more complexity. However, the "shortcuts" introduced earlier can automatically execute fairly complicated operations. Tell Siri the title of the "shortcut" and let it run.
