Make, change, cancel and view your calendar events with a little help from 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.

How to create a calendar event with Siri

If you're on the go or just want an easier way to add events to your Calendar app, Siri will happily get the job done for you. Creating an event is super simple and only takes a few seconds.

  1. Press and hold the Home button on your iPhone or iPad to launch Siri.
  2. Say something like "Schedule a meeting/appointment/call with Rene at 3pm tomorrow" (you'll be replacing names and times with your own information).
  3. Siri will confirm what she heard and ask you to confirm. Say or tap confirm to add this calendar entry.

    Press and hold the Home button-ask Siri to create an appointment-tap or say confirm.

If there's any ambiguity about what you said, or Siri is uncertain, it will ask you to clarify. For example, if you ask to set up an appointment "tomorrow", and it's near midnight, Siri will ask you to specify the date to make sure the appointment is set up properly.

If you made a mistake or simply want to revise something immediately, instead of confirming, you can also tell Siri to "change the time", "change the title (of the appointment/event)", or simply "cancel" it entirely.

How to update a calendar event with Siri

There may be times where you'll need to make changes to existing meetings, events, or appointments. Siri can do that for you, too.

  1. Press and hold the Home button on your iPhone or iPad to launch Siri.
  2. Say something like "Move my 3pm meeting tomorrow" or "Reschedule my 9am dentist appointment today" (replace my information with your own).

    Press and hold the Home button and ask Siri to reschedule an appointment.

  3. Siri will then ask you to tell her the new time and date.
  4. After telling Siri a new time and date, it will ask you to confirm. Say "yes" or tap confirm to update your calendar event.

    Tell Siri the new date and time and say or tap confirm.

How to cancel a calendar event with Siri

You can also use Siri to completely cancel a meeting or appointment.

  1. Press and hold the Home button on your iPhone or iPad to launch Siri.
  2. Say something like "Cancel my 2pm appointment tomorrow."
  3. Siri will then as you to confirm what she heard. Tap on or say Yes to confirm it's correct.

    Press and hold the Home button, ask Siri to cancel an appointment, and tap or say confirm.

If you have multiple meetings with someone and don't specify a specific one, Siri will ask you to confirm which meeting you'd like to cancel.
