Siri can be used to send messages to friends, create a reminder, call contacts, set an alarm, and plenty of other tasks. Just speak your commands to it in plain English and Siri will do its best.

By default, Siri won’t respond vocally when Silent Mode is on – and in iOS 14 and above, the streamlined interface may not even show captions or transcriptions when talking to Siri. You can change these behaviors from Settings > Siri & Search > Siri Responses.
