iPhone, Tutorials

If you own an iPhone 13, you have access to Siri, Apple’s virtual assistant. Siri can help you with various tasks, from setting reminders and sending messages to getting directions and playing music.

Activating Siri is easy and can be done in a few different ways. In this tutorial, we will explore how to activate Siri on your iPhone 13.

Method 1: Using the Side Button

The simplest way to activate Siri on your iPhone 13 is by using the side button. Follow these steps:

  1. Locate the side button on your iPhone 13. It’s usually located on the right side of the device.

  2. Press and hold the side button until you see the Siri interface appear on your screen.

  3. Once Siri is activated, you can start speaking your command or question.

Method 2: Using Voice Command

If you prefer a hands-free approach, you can activate Siri using voice commands. Here’s how:

  1. Make sure “Hey Siri” is enabled on your iPhone. To do this, go to Settings > Siri & Search > Listen for “Hey Siri” and toggle it on if it’s not already enabled.

  2. Once Hey Siri is enabled, simply say “Hey Siri” followed by your command or question.


  • If you have an iPhone with Face ID, such as the iPhone 13 Pro or Pro Max, you can also activate Siri by saying “Hey Siri” without pressing any buttons. This feature relies on Face ID technology to recognize your face and respond accordingly.
  • If you have an iPhone with Touch ID, such as the iPhone 13 mini, you can activate Siri by pressing and holding the Home button instead of the side button.

Method 3: Using AssistiveTouch

If you have difficulty pressing buttons or prefer a different method, you can use AssistiveTouch to activate Siri. Here’s how:

  1. Go to Settings > Accessibility > Touch > AssistiveTouch and toggle it on.

  2. A floating button will appear on your screen. Tap on it to open the AssistiveTouch menu.

  3. In the AssistiveTouch menu, tap on “Siri”. This will activate Siri, and you can start speaking your command or question.

With these methods, you can easily activate Siri on your iPhone 13. Whether you prefer using buttons, voice commands, or AssistiveTouch, Siri is always ready to assist you with your tasks and queries. So go ahead and give it a try!
