How to edit text you have dictated to Siri on iPhone and iPad

Siri can answer hundreds of questions, respond to dozens of commands, and scour the web for information on a myriad of topics. Unfortunately Siri may not always understand you correctly or you may simply want to adjust your command or query. Luckily, you can easily edit the text Siri's responding to and have it give you an updated response.

How to edit Siri questions and commands on iPhone and iPad

  1. Press and hold the Home button on your iPhone or iPad, or say "Hey, Siri" to activate Siri.
  2. Dictate a request.

  3. Tap on the text you spoke in order to edit it.
  4. Make your changes and then tap Done on the bottom right of the keyboard.

    Thanks to Siri's word suggestion, you can also just tap a word that you want to change.

Siri will re-process your request and give you new answers or results. In some cases, certain names and places can be frustrating and it's much easier to correct one word than manually search for something in Safari or through your device. Just simply correct what Siri doesn't understand. Try it out and let us know how it works for you!
