The complete guide to managing your Calendar events and appointments on your iPhone or iPad with Siri
Since Siri is meant to be your personal assistant, it only makes sense to have it schedule and manage your meetings and events on your iPhone or iPad. Asking Siri to create a calendar event only takes a few seconds and is much faster than creating them manually and entering all the data yourself. Whether you need Siri to schedule a meeting, tell you what's on the agenda for the day, or move an existing meeting to another time to make room for a conference call or a power nap, Siri will help make sure your schedule is set.
With iCloud, you no longer need to plug your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad into iTunes on your Mac or Windows PC to set it up for the first time. Now you can do it faster and more easily than ever before over-the-air and right on your device!
The iPhone and iPad Calendar app allows you to set not only your default calendar, but to customize many other settings that change how your calendar events behave. Having good defaults can make it much faster to add new events and appointments, especially if you often add events to the same calendar, with the same alert requirements. You can also set how far back your iPhone and iPad will sync those appointments and events, so you can keep handy just your most recent entries, or entries going back for months. You can toggle automatic time zone shifting, and even turn off invitation alerts if you need fewer distractions in your life.
When you're creating an event or appointment in the iPhone or iPad Calendar app, you might want to add other people to it, and alert them about it. That's where invitations come in. If you're using a calendar service that supports it, like Apple's iCloud service or Microsoft's Exchange, all you need are the email addresses for the people you want to invite.
Siri integrates directly with OpenTable in order to let you easily make restaurant reservations right on your iPhone or iPad. All you've got to do is ask Siri and then tell it where and when you'd like your reservation for.
Siri can provide a lot of information about restaurants both around you and in other locations. If you're going somewhere you've never been before, you may want to know what to expect price wise. Luckily Siri can do even better than that. Along with pricing, you can also get general contact information, directions, hours, and more. As always, all you've got to do is ask!
While there are lots of sports apps available in the App Store, sometimes it's just easier to ask Siri a simple question than to have to launch apps and search for things. So next time you're wondering when your favorite baseball or football team has a game, just ask Siri instead!
If you have a favorite athlete, Siri makes it easy to get up to date statistics on them whenever you want. Sure this is something a lot of third party apps can show you too, but if you ever need to look something up quickly, try asking Siri instead!
