How to use Siri with Notes

Like its sister apps, Reminders and Calendar, Notes is maturing in both ease of use and functionality with each release.

Siri makes the process of quickly adding and editing a note just that bit easier, especially if you’re on the move and need to jot something down quickly.

So here is everything you need to know about using Siri with Notes to create, dictate, find, update, and remove entries.

We have written a detailed Siri dictation guide to give you tips on getting the most out of speaking to Siri.

In this article, we trigger Siri using the “Hey Siri” voice command. Did you know there are other methods available, depending on your device? You can read about them all in our how to use Siri guide.

Create a new note

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.

Create 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.

Pin Number Note

Finding notes

There is a variety of phrases you can use to find notes:

Hey Siri, show me my notes

Hey Siri, show me my notes from tomorrow/today/next week

Notes Today

Hey Siri, show me my notes from the 4th July

Hey Siri, show me notes about my important project

Hey Siri, find notes about music

A list of matching notes will be displayed on screen, tap on the one you wish to read.

How to make Siri read notes

Hey Siri, update my pin number note
