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 immediately 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, then immediately make your request.
  • On iPad Pro models without a Home button, press the Top button, then immediately make your request.
  • If your device has a Home button, press it, then immediately say what you need.

Want to make a longer request? Just press and hold the button that you use to activate Siri until you're finished making your request.

On AirPods or in a car

While wearing AirPods Pro or AirPods (2nd generation), say "Hey Siri," then immediately say what you need. On AirPods (1st generation), double-tap the outside of either AirPod, wait for 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 make your request.

On Apple Watch

Here are a few ways to talk to Siri.

Say "Hey Siri"

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

Raise to speak

With watchOS 5 and later 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.

Press 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 until you're finished making your request.
