How to use Siri with Notes

Everything you need to know about using Siri to dictate, find, update and remove Notes.

Creating Notes

Siri can make the process of entering a note into your iPhone or iPad much quicker.

Hey Siri, create a note
Hey Siri, create a note called Vacation

Siri will ask you what you want the note to say, at this point you can start dictating the text. Once finished, you will be prompted to confirm your entry.

PIN Number Note

For shorter notes, speak the note text at the same time as creating the note:

Hey Siri, note that my PIN number is 0202

This will create a note containing the information you dictated.
