How to quickly create complex reminders with Siri, including links, in-app actions, location, and more.
At the center of the whole diagram is the function Remind by Siri… How to use it? You do something on your iPhone, and then just ask Apple’s virtual assistant to remind you “about it” and name the time after which it must be done.
Example 1 (creating a reminder containing a link to an article)
You are reading an article on your smartphone, and you need to distract yourself for a couple of minutes. You call Siri directly from this web page (using a button or a voice command “Hey Siri”) and say:
“Remind me about it [т.е. о последнем действии] in three minutes. “
The key phrase that must be present when creating a request for Siri is “about it”… Siri knows that the last action was to browse the web page and that is why the command “about it” instructs the voice assistant to create a reminder with a specific condition.
As a result, after the specified time, the corresponding “reminder” will appear in the Notification Center. In addition, the corresponding notification will be posted in the application Reminders…
If you click on this notification, the application will open Reminders with a “reminder” entry. To the right of it will be the Safari icon (in our case). Click on it – there will be an automatic transition to Safari, and you can read the article to the end.

Example 2 (creating a reminder to write an email)
Open the app post office, compose a new email, fire up Siri and say:
“Remind me of this at 7:55 pm today.”
Siri will create a reminder that will launch an existing draft in the app post office…
This scheme can work with almost any application, as long as its developer added support. Siri Commands… The most popular iOS apps have already received support for Siri shortcuts.
Another feature to keep in mind is the ability to ask Siri to remind you of something when you find yourself in a certain place. For example: “Hey Siri, remind me when I get home.” As a result, the voice assistant will display a reminder every time you appear in your native land – until you mark the task as completed.
Other options are also possible: for example, “at 8 am”, “every day”, etc.
With app Commands your iPhone / iPad has learned to make life even more convenient, so it’s a sin not to take advantage of it. Be sure to check out these possibilities of pumping a mobile device using the application Commands…
