MESSAGING WITH SIRI
If you want to hear a message that is sent to you, Siri will dictate the content of the message. You can repeat the message, send a reply or even call the sender, just ask Siri.
When replying to a message, Siri will ask you to dictate your message. Siri will check the message with you and you can change it, listen again, or ask Siri to send it.
If you want to write a message, tell Siri what you want to do. For example: ‘Send a message to my wife’. Then tell Siri the message which it will then repeat back and send it if you want to proceed
