Setting up Siri

Setting up SiriGet yourself up and running quickly, use the guide below to enable Siri on your iPhone.

If you choose to restore your new iPhone 4s from an iTunes backup or from iCloud, you may find that Siri is turned off once the process is complete. If so, follow these instructions.

Siri Requirements:

  • iPhone 4s or later.
  • An Internet connection (wireless or 3G upwards is best).

Setting up Siri:

Enable Siri on your iPhone before you begin.

  1. Navigate to Settings->General->Siri – slide the little button to ‘On’ if it isn’t already.
  2. Check the settings below are correct. Choose your language, your voice feedback preferences and your contact book profile (so that Siri knows who you are and can begin creating ‘relationships’ such as ‘wife’ or ‘brother’ with other contacts in your address book).
  3. Enable ‘Raise to Speak’. This setting means you can simply pick up the iPhone when it is awake and hold to your ear as if making a call – once you do, Siri will activate.
