Optimising Siri for your Singaporean Accent
Siri was and still is the flagship feature first seen in iOS 7. This virtual personal assistant can help make your life easier and answer all your questions swiftly. However, it’s power is unfortunately limited by our Singlish. Hence. it often mispronounces words and doesn’t recognise quirky Singaporean names and places. How do you fix this? Simple. just say ‘That is not how you pronounce (the specific word)” after Siri has responded your statement. This corrects the error and reveals a list of substitutes you can choose from.
Create a Family Tree With Siri
Do you know you can establish relationships between your contacts? Just activate Siri and explain the relationships between your contacts. For example, “Tan Ah Beng is my brother”. Once you have instructed Siri, simply say ‘Yes’ when prompted by the program and the relationship will be confirmed.
Siri without the Home Button
Activating Siri by pressing the home button is troublesome. Did you know you can call Siri just using your voice? Just select General within the main Settings panel, tap Siri, and toggle Allow “Hey Siri” to turn that function on.

To check out which apps are sapping your life force, select General from within the main Settings panel. Afterward, select Usage followed by Battery Usage on the resulting page to see the list of power hogs.
iPhones are getting larger, but our fingers aren’t getting any longer. Want to use your iPhone with only 1 hand. it’s not impossible.The new Reachability feature can be activated by simply double-tapping the Home button to shift the screen down closer to your thumb. After your selection is made, it will conveniently slide back up to its original position, accessibility at its finest.
What’s That Tune
