What is Siri? What Tasks Does It Perform?
The working method of Siri is based on different technologies, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language processing.

Before we explain how to use Siri on iPhone 11, we have shared some details on the introduction of Siri.
Although Siri is quite popular, very few people know that it’s an acronym for the term ‘Speech Interpretation and Recognition Interface’. Siri was first launched as an application for iOS devices in February 2010. But then Apple Inc. acquired it. Apple then integrated Siri into iPhone 4S on October 4, 2011.
Thus, Siri has been in use for over a decade now. However, new users of Apple products face many difficulties related to Siri and other aspects. These new users include both – those who have bought a particular type of product for the first time (smartphone, television, earbuds, etc.) and those who have purchased an Apple product for the first time.
Therefore, a lot of users try to learn how to use Siri on iPhone 11. Talking about the activities that Siri can perform, let’s just say that the list is long. Some of the activities that Siri can carry out include setting alarms, adding reminders, creating events, playing music, making calls, checking emails, sending and reading texts, doing translation, performing searches on the Internet, getting directions, and performing mathematical calculations, and reporting weather conditions.
Whenever users give any command to Siri through their voices, it converts commands into data files, which are then sent to Apple servers for processing. Then, the servers understand your requirements and produce the desired results. The results are created in the form of voice or text. In simple words, Siri will either respond to you or flash a text.
