4. Using Siri to Stay in Touch

When it comes to contacts, Siri is the star of the show. It helps you stay in touch with others by supercharging your device’s communication capabilities, letting you search for contacts, placing phone calls, sending text messages, and even composing email.

Siri understands relationships, too. Communication is all about relationships between people, and Siri can learn the established connections between you, your friends and coworkers, and your family.
