HOW TO Use Siri in Sierra
1 Search the web
Ask Siri to search the web for a topic. It also knows about sports and weather; ask how a major team fared recently (“Did Liverpool win?”), or for today’s or tomorrow’s forecast.
2 Get organised
Rather than laboriously typing out Calendar events, have Siri “set a meeting with Craig on Friday at 9”, move existing events, or tell you what’s scheduled for a given day.
3 Find and open stuff
Open apps, access preference panes, and change things like screen brightness. Have Siri open specific files in certain folders: “Show all the JPEGs in my Downloads folder”.
4 Stash your searches
After finding some files using Siri, click the + to save the search in Notification Centre as a Finder Search widget; it’ll update as other relevant files are later added.
5 Get directions
Have Siri give you “directions from home to Dundee”, or “show a map of New York”. An evening out? Easy. “Show me local restaurants”, or “What films are showing locally?”
6 Get more ideas
Siri has many more capabilities. To discover some of them, ask it: “What can you do?” – Siri will bring up a scrollable list. Click an item to see use-case examples for it.
