Use Siri on all your Apple devices

Ask Siri to send a message on your iPhone, play your favorite TV show on your Apple TV, or start a workout on your Apple Watch. Whatever it is, Siri can do it for you — and on any of your Apple devices. All you have to do is ask.

On iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

Here are a few ways to talk to Siri.


Say "Hey Siri"

Just say "Hey Siri," then say what you need. For example, say "Hey Siri, what's the weather like today?"

Press and release the button

On iPhone X or later, press the side button for a few moments, then immediately make your request.

If your device has a Home button, press it, then say what you need.

Press and hold the button

Want to make a longer request? On iPhone X or later, press and hold the side button while you make your request. When you release the side button, Siri stops listening.

If your device has a Home button, just press and hold it until you're finished making your request.

On AirPods, headsets, or in a car

While wearing AirPods, double-tap the outside of either AirPod, wait for a chime, then make your request.

On other headsets or Bluetooth devices, hold down the center button or call button until you hear a chime, then make your request.

If your vehicle supports CarPlay or Siri Eyes Free, hold down the voice-command button on your steering wheel while you say what you need.

On Apple Watch

Here are a few ways to talk to Siri on your Apple Watch.

Say "Hey Siri"

Look at your Apple Watch or tap its screen. When it wakes, just say “Hey Siri," then say what you need.

Raise to talk

With the latest version of watchOS and Apple Watch Series 3 or later, you don't need to say "Hey Siri.” Just hold your watch near your mouth and say what you need.

Hold the Digital Crown

Press the Digital Crown for a few moments, then tell Siri what you need.

Want to make a longer request? Just press and hold the Digital Crown, say what you need, then release the Digital Crown.
