Whether you’re new to iOS, or just want to pick up some useful tips and tricks, we're here to help. This is iOS Advice. Using Siri to keep your schedule organized is a very useful feature for supported iOS devices. If there’s new event you need in your calendar, just tell Siri the details and let your device take care of the rest. There are a few handy calendar tasks you can perform with Siri, but you have to know what to say. If you’d like to learn how to manage your calendar events with Siri, watch the video or follow the steps below: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbeICwQBqmE Step 1: First, we’re going to make a new event with Siri. If you’d like to create a new event, just tell Siri your schedule. For example, you can say, “I have a doctors appointment on Friday at 10 p.m.” Siri will first check for any matching or duplicate events, then you’ll be asked if you’d like to add that event to your calendar. Step 2: Now, let’s go ahead and reschedule an event. This task can be accomplished by saying things such as, “Move my 6 p.m. appointment on January 2 to 9 p.m.” Next, you'll be asked to confirm the new time and date for your event. Step 3: You also have the ability to delete events from your calendar. If you’d like to completely delete an event, you can say things like, “Delete my 1 p.m. appointment on January 2.” You’ll need to confirm that you’d like to delete this event by using the on-screen button, or by saying, "Yes." After you’re done with the confirmation, the event will be permanently removed from your calendar. These may seem like simple tips, but using Siri to manage calendar events has definitely made a huge impact on how I keep my schedule organized. Watch the video above for a detailed look at this process and check out the rest of our Siri tutorials for more tips on how to get the most out of your device.
