How to Use Your iPad and iPhone as Your Personal Assistant

Learn how to manage your business and personal life!

Would you love to have a personal assistant 24/7? This web video will help you to stay on task, schedule and move appointments, give directions to meetings, read incoming email and text messages, and much more. Length: 2 hours.

In this web video, you'll learn how to:  

  • Develop a working relationship with your assistant.
  • Manage your mobile business hands-free with Siri.
  • Summon Siri without pressing the home button.
  • Summon your iOS assistant hands-free — even when driving. 
  • Never miss an appointment. 
  • Quickly move or remove an appointment without opening the calendar app.
  • Get directions to your appointments.
  • Set up your iOS device to auto-remind you about an important task by date, time or location. 
  • Voice-dictate your text and email messages. 
  • Have your voicemail messages played for you hands-free.
  • Have your new email and text messages read to you just by asking.
  • Ask your assistant to show photos you took on a specific date or location.
  • Quickly calculate math functions like tips, percentages, square feet and tonnage just by asking. 
  • Open apps hands-free.

For this course you will need one of the following fully charged devices

  • iPad generation 4 or newer.
  • iPad Mini 2 or newer.
  • iPhone 5 or newer. 

Your iPad or iPhone must also support Siri. If you are not sure whether your device supports Siri, hold down your home button for one second. If your device beeps and your screen asks, “what can I help you with?” you have Siri.
