How to have Siri check your iPhone call history for you

Apple's personal digital assistant, Siri, knows how to check your voice mail. It may seem like something easy enough to do the old fashioned way - unlock, tap phone, tap okay ... already tired. Whether your hands are full at the moment, or you're just too lazy to do it the old-fashioned way, here's how to get your call history and have Siri do all the work.

How to use Siri to check your call history

  1. Press and hold the Home button or say "Hey, Siri" to activate Siri on your iPhone.
  2. Say something like Check my call history or Check my recent calls.
  3. Siri will then pull up recent calls from your call history. If you need to call someone back, just tap the name and Siri can launch into a voice call.

    Ask Siri about your call history

If your iPhone is locked, Siri will only show you the last phone or FaceTime call you made. You will have to unlock your screen to see more.
