About Siri Suggestions on iPhone
Siri makes suggestions for what you might want to do next, such as confirm an appointment or send an email, based on your routines and how you use your apps. For example, Siri might help when you do any of the following:
Glance at the Lock screen or start a search: As Siri learns your routines, you get suggestions for just what you need, at just the right time. For example, if you frequently order coffee mid morning, Siri may suggest your order near the time you normally place it.
Create email and events: When you start adding people to an email or calendar event, Siri suggests the people you included in previous emails or events.
Receive calls: If you get an incoming call from an unknown number, Siri lets you know who might be calling—based on phone numbers included in your emails.
Leave for an event: If your calendar event includes a location, Siri assesses traffic conditions and notifies you when to leave.
See your flight status: If you have a boarding pass in Mail or Wallet, Siri shows your flight status in Maps. You can tap the suggestion when you’re ready to get directions to the airport.
Type: As you enter text, Siri can suggest names of movies, places—anything you viewed on iPhone recently. If you tell a friend you’re on your way, Siri can even suggest your estimated arrival time.
Search in Safari: Siri suggests websites and other information in the search field as you type.
Above the keyboard, Siri also suggests words and phrases based on what you were just reading.
Confirm an appointment or book a flight on a travel website: Siri asks if you want to add it to your calendar.
Read News stories: As Siri learns which topics you’re interested in, they’ll be suggested in News.
