Does My iPad or iPhone Have Siri?

siri-ios71Siri is a great feature of Apple’s recent mobile devices and a preview of how we’ll be communicating with our devices in the future. But how do you know if you can use Siri on your particular iPhone or iPad (or iPod touch)?

Today we’re just concerned with finding out if a device supports Siri. But this article has all the basics including setup and usage.

Only the newer mobile Apple devices support Siri. In particular, the following have Siri built into them:

iPhone 4S or newer
iPad 3rd generation or newer
iPod Touch 5th generation

In addition, the device must be running with iOS 6 or later.

If you don’t remember all those numbers, you can just look on the device to see if Siri is there.

  1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad or iPod touch.
  2. Tap on General.
  3. Look for Siri.  If it’s not there, this device does not support Siri.

Be sure and look thoroughly, as it is easy to miss that one line.
