Add your fam­ily to Con­tacts

Mac Format - - IMPROVE -

1

Start with your­self

You should start by mak­ing sure your own de­tails are up to date and cor­rect. Tap on Con­tacts, and find your name in the side­bar on the left. Now make sure your name, phone num­ber, and email in­for­ma­tion are present and cor­rect. If you want Siri to call you some­thing other than your first name, you can pick a nick­name by tap­ping Add Field > Nick­name.

2

Add your fam­ily

Next you should make sure all of your im­me­di­ate fam­ily is listed in the Con­tacts app. If you need to add a per­son, tap the Add (’+’) icon and en­ter their first and last name, then their email ad­dress and any other in­for­ma­tion you have. Siri and Con­tacts look much bet­ter us­ing images, so tap Add Photo > Choose Photo and pick an im­age from the Cam­era Roll.

3

Tell Siri who you are

Fi­nally you need to make sure Siri knows who you are. Tap on Set­tings > Siri > My Info and choose your own name from the Con­tacts list. Siri now re­sponds to you by name. Test that this has worked by hold­ing the Home but­ton and say­ing to Siri “Who am I?” Siri now re­sponds to you by ei­ther your first name or the nick­name you chose ear­lier.
