Voice recognition within iOS is pretty accurate, but sometimes Siri misunderstands a word within your question or command. Luckily, there’s a way to edit your sentence right from within Siri’s interface.

If you can't see the above video, please click this link.Step 1: Activate Siri and ask a question. Step 2: When Siri begins processing your question, tap on the box containing the query text. This will bring up the virtual keyboard and allow you to edit your question on the fly. Step 3: Once you’re finished editing the text, tap “Done” on the keyboard and Siri will reprocess the sentence. It’s also important to note that you can only edit a question or command once for reprocessing. This can be extremely helpful if Siri is misunderstanding your questions or commands. You have the ability to edit any text within Siri’s interface, but it’s very helpful when a mistake has been made. Now that you’ve learned how edit Siri questions or commands, if there’s something else you’d like to see on iOS Advice, please let us know.
