How to customize Siri in iOS 10 on iPhone/ iPad

Although Siri has been introduced since iOS 5 on iPhone 4s, from that iOS version until iOS 9, it has not had any valuable changes yet. There are still many limitations like unable to understand different languages or the lack of integration with third-party apps. However, since the release of iOS 10, Siri is set to become more active than ever before.

 

Since iOS 10, Apple allows developers to use Apple’s virtual personal assistant to control their apps, you can tell Siri to start a video calling via Skype, send a message to your friend, book a taxi, and send money and more. With Siri all geared up for a major fix, it would be great to set it up and customize the virtual assistant as your desire.
