Teach Siri About Your Relationships

Here's how to teach contact names and relationships to Siri

Updated Dec 01,2016 | by Mike

Apple's virtual personal assistant, Siri, can do a lot for anyone with an iPhone/iPad. One of the most useful things that Siri can do is remember your relationships. Once you've told Siri who your mom is, you can ask her to call mom or send her a message. Same with your wife, dad and other family members and friends. Today, we will discuss how to add family relationships to Siri

First thing's first, you have to you start with yourself

You have to make sure your own details are correct and up to date. Open Contacts, and find your number on top. Tap on it and make sure your number, email and all other information are correct. Also make sure you've picked a nickname so that Siri can call you that other than nickname, if you prefer. You can pick a nickname by tapping Add Field > Nickname.

Next, add your family

Make sure all you family members are listed in Contacts app. If no, add each person slowly. Alternatively you can add their photo from camera roll to the address book.

Tell Siri About Your Relationhips

* Click and hold the Home button on your iPhone or iPad to launch Siri, then say "[name of contact] is my [husband, wife, boss]."

* After thinking about it a moment, Siri will ask to confirm the relationship. Done and done.

There's another way: ff you can access iCloud, you can edit your relationships, nicknames and phonetic name from a web browser.

* Log into, click the Contacts icon. Search for a contact card, then click the Edit button.

* Click the Add Field button to add a phonetic first or last name, a nickname, or a "related" person.
