Take a picture on iPhone or iPad? There is nothing easier – this simple procedure is known to every owner of an “apple” gadget. But did you know that you can launch the desired camera not only with your hands, but also with the help of Siri? This can be very handy sometimes! All you have to do is give the correct voice command.
Starting with iOS 10, the personal assistant Siri learned how to control the camera. Below we will show you how to use it.
It should be noted right away that Siri does not know how to shoot, but can only launch the necessary camera mode.
