No problem. How about the score for the last game? Not a problem either! With Siri, you can calm your nerves, win bar bets, or simply impress your friends!
Siri, Apple's personal digital assistant for iPhone and iPad, can do far more than make calls or appointments, send texts or set alarms — it can read children a bedtime story. It takes a little work to coax Siri into doing it, but the smiles you get in return make it more than worthwhile.
Wolfram|Alpha can compute and calculate almost any mathematical equation you could possibly think of.

While a plain old Google or Yelp search from your iPhone or iPad can always help you find a place to eat or a store to buy something you need, using Siri in conjunction with the built-in Maps app is not only faster, it gives you the best of both worlds.
If you use the built-in Music app to organize and listen to songs on your iPhone or iPad, you most likely have custom playlists that you've created over time. If you want to play one of them, you don't even have to launch the Music app. Instead, just ask Siri to play it for you!
If you want a weekly weather forecast you can always launch your favorite weather app and check out all the data you want. However, if you're in a hurry Siri can also give you forecasts for the entire week if you just ask.
Ever had a time where you're using Siri and your iPhone or iPad doesn't stop listening when you want it to?
