Siri is Apple's most recent development for iPhone that takes voice command to a point it has not previously reached - the ability to understand the natural spoken word and interpret it into meaningful tasks such as meeting requests, calendar events, texts, emails, and much, much more. Available only on the iPhone 4S at this time, Siri can accomplish just about any common task on the iPhone while the user is "hands free." Siri can also be invoked from within applications where a microphone icon is available from the virtual keyboard. In this step-by-step tutorial, author Brad Miser uses detailed, full-color images along with easy to follow steps that help you quickly progress through configuring Siri and using it with apps like Messages, Reminders, Mail, Music, and more.
