Siri Tip of the Day: Do Math

Siri is good at math. All you have to do is ask. For example, “What’s 490 divided by 139?” (Siri will read the answer to you out loud.)

Siri: 490 divided by 189

In some cases, Siri doesn’t provide the answer natively. Instead, she gets the answer from Wolfram Alpha. Either way, you get what you want, without using your hands.
