Step # 2 – Creating a Note

Siri can also perform many other functions such as note taking. Here we will press and hold the home button again to access Siri then state “Create a new note”, you will then be prompted to dictate the note to Siri. The note will be transcribed and Siri will confirm this. To access the note you just created you have to touch “Notes” on the home screen and you will see it within this application.

Siri can also take notes that you dictate

Step # 3 – Making Sure Siri is Enabled

If for some reason you are not able to access Siri you should make sure it is enabled. Touch “Settings” on the home screen and touch “General” from the list on the left. At the top you need to make sure that the on/off button next to Siri is turned to “On”. This is a basic introduction of how to use Siri on iPad.
