iOS 9: How to enable voice assistant Siri on iPad

If Siri wasn’t activated while setting up your iPad 3rd Generation or later, or your iPad mini, you can activate it by opening Settings, General, Siri and then turning it on.

Siri is your personal assistant, and can be used to control certain functions on the iPad by using voice commands. To access Siri, press and hold the Home button for a few seconds until the microphone icon appears, and then start speaking after you hear the double-beep.
