People are just noticing the genius Siri hack that every iPhone owner should know about
A SIMPLE Siri hack can save you a lot of time.
Even longtime iPhone owners won’t know all of the secret Siri commands on offer.
Think about how often you share content with someone at a time.
Maybe it’s a web page or a photo – whatever the case, you probably do it all the time.
Depending on what you’re sharing, it could take half a dozen taps or more to get the job done.
But you can actually share what you’re watching with a simple Siri command.
Yes, you can share a message, social post, photo, or even a podcast simply by using a voice command.
First, make sure Hey Siri is enabled. Go to Settings > Siri & Search and turn on Listen for “Hey Siri”.
Then all you have to do is say, “Share this page [CONTACT NAME]”.
“You can share screen assets like photos, webpages, Apple Music or Apple Podcasts content, map locations, and more with people in your contacts,” Apple explains.
“For example, if you’re looking at a photo in your photo library, say something like ‘Hey Siri, send this to Mom’ to create a new message with the photo.”
For the feature to work, you need to make sure you’re trying to share content with a phone contact.
If the person isn’t saved in your Contacts under their correct name, you won’t be able to share with them using Siri.
Here are some more Siri iPhone hacks you can try.
If you are a Harry Potter fan, there are many spells that you can try.
Fans will remember, for example, the spell “Lumos” – which in the Harry Potter universe lights up the end of a witch’s or magic wand.
It allows characters to see in the dark and was used by Potter himself in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
You can take the magic back to the Muggle world yourself by activating Siri on an iPhone and saying “Lumos” to turn on your device’s flashlight.
Lumos isn’t the only magic that works on the iPhone.
If you activate Siri and say “Nox”, the wand erase spell, the torch will turn off.
And you can even cast Accio, the spell used by Potter and his buddies to summon an object onto the caster.
After waking Siri, say “Accio” followed by an app name to open the selected application.
