#10. Still Not Sure What Siri Can Do? Just Ask Siri!
At any time, if you're not sure what Siri can do, or how to phrase a question or command, activate Siri and ask, "What can you do for me?" Or, when viewing the main Siri prompt on the iPhone's screen, tap on the "i" icon that's displayed to the right of the "What can I help you with?" prompt. This will display a menu of sample questions and commands you can use in conjunction with specific apps.
Using Siri's WolframAlpha compatibility, you can ask many types of questions that Siri will quickly research and provide the answer to. WolframAlpha is an online-based, state-of-the-art answer engine that uses artificial intelligence to research answers to almost any fact-based question and then provide a quick response.
