Need a fast way to find out about birthdays? Not a problem. With the iPhone 4S you can avoid faking a distraction, jumping out the window, racing to the car, and slamming down on the accelerator, Homer Simpson-style, because you forgot that special someone's special day. Assuming you have the birthday recorder in your calendar, all you have to do is ask Siri.
- Hold down the Home button until Siri pops up
- Ask Siri "When is [name's] birthday"
- Wait for Siri to answer
Name's can include your own ("my"), proper names ("Phil Nickinson's"), or relationships ("my wife's"), provided they've been added to the contact.
Now if only Siri would let us create Reminders based on birthdays, we may never be forced onto the couch again!
Thanks: Mia Nickinson
