Hello, guys welcome to this guide on how to activate Siri on iPhone Xs or any other X series devices from Apple such as iPhone X, Xs Max and the XR.
Just as we have Google Assistant on Android, Siri is the virtual assistant part of Apple’s iOS, watchOS, macOS, HomePod, and tvOS operating systems. SIRI uses assistant voice queries and a natural-language user interface to answer questions, make recommendations, and perform actions by delegating requests to a set of Internet services
You can ask Siri to send a message on your iPhone, play your favourite TV show on your Apple TV, or start a workout on your Apple Watch. Whatever it is, Siri can do it for you — and on any of your Apple devices. All you have to do is say Hey Siri play me, for example, FIFA 16 game.
Now that you know what Siri is and how to use it, we will be talking about how to activate it on your new iPhone Xs, Xs Max and XR.
On older iPhones with the home button, Siri can be activated via the Touch ID, but since last year starting with the iPhone X, Apple has ditched the home button which also serves as the Touch ID to favour a new design. All the iPhone X Series now uses Face ID instead Touch ID. Therefore, the way you normally activate Siri has changed and the functionality has been moved to a new button.
This is the reason we want to show you how to activate Siri on iPhone Xs or any other X Series for that matter.
