Everything you need to know about setting up and using Siri on your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad!

Siri is the name of Apple's personal digital assistant. It's basically voice control that talks back to you, that understands relationships and context, and with a personality straight out of Pixar. Ask Siri questions, or ask Siri to do things for you, just like you would ask a real assistant, and Siri will help keep you connected, informed, in the right place, and on time.

Having issues skipping, stopping, and playing music tracks in your car over Bluetooth? Here's the fix!

Kids projects: Learn a new language with Duolingo on your iPhone or iPad

We're starting a new series focusing on fun summer — or winter — projects for the whole family. Things you can do on your iPhone, iPad, and/or Mac in ways that are convenient, efficient, and rewarding. This is the first one. I hope you enjoy it!

Summer means the days are long, work gets a break, schools let out, and we have time for some fun in the sun. It also means we have time to expand our horizons, to learn and do new and exciting things. One such thing is learning a new language. How we communicate and how we think are limited only by our command of language, beautiful, lyrical, contextual, nuanced, delicious language. And apps like Duolingo make it easier than ever to learn a new language, to do it from your deck or poolside, from your living room or hotel room, and right on your iPhone and iPad

How to replace a stuck or broken iPhone power button: The ultimate guide

Everything you need to know to DIY (do-it-yourself) repair a stuck or broken power button in your iPhone!

The iPhone has been plagued with power button issues since the debut of the iPhone 4. We've seen complaints from many readers that their iPhone power buttons are completely recessed and no longer register when pressed. In some cases, they'll still respond but you have to press extremely hard. In severe cases, the power button actually recesses into the casing. The iPhone 5 power button failed enough that Apple issued a replacement program. Unfortunately, that only extends to certain owners, and in certain countries, which leaves DIY repair as the most cost effective option.

Luckily, that's where iMore comes in! No matter what iPhone you have, we can walk you through how to troubleshoot and fix a stuck power button!
