What does it mean to send text messages with Siri and process details?

Siri, the smart assistant that comes installed on all Apple devices, can help you use nearly every default iPhone app and can set calendar appointments, find directions, set an alarm, and even send text messages.

According to business insider, you can send text messages to anyone who uses Siri on an iPhone or Apple Watch with just a voice command, and here’s how you do it.

How to send text messages using Siri

Siri can send text messages from your iPhone or Apple Watch. If you’re connected to the Internet, you can send iMessages; And if you’re connected to a cellular signal, you can send SMS messages.

The same goes for the iPad, and if your iPad is a Wi-Fi + Cellular model and it’s connected to mobile data, Siri can send text messages as well.

If you don’t have a cellular signal or it’s a standard Wi-Fi model, you can only send iMessages.

To make Siri send a text message, you can activate Siri, say “Send a text message to,” and then say who you want to send your message to, and you can either give a name from your contacts list, or a full phone number.

Siri will ask you what you want to say, start dictating your text message.

Remember, Siri doesn’t understand punctuation, and if you want to insert commas or closing sentences, you’ll have to say “comma” or “period” in time.

You can also include emojis by describing them, for example, you can say “heart emoji” to write ♥, or say “waving emoji” to write 👋.

When you’re done, pause for a moment, and after about a second of silence, Siri will read what he’s written to you, then ask if you want to edit or send it.

Say “edit text” if you want to try again completely, or “send” if you’re ready to send it, and you can also say “cancel” to exit and stop the whole process.

Text messages you’ve sent using Siri will appear in the Messages app just like regular messages, and if they’re iMessages, you can still edit or unsend them.
