If you have a newer iPhone, do yourself a favour and play around with Siri Shortcuts. Most people don’t really know what can be done here.
You can set up so many different automations that can make your day to day life easier.
Here’s a few basic examples of how I use Siri Shortcuts at the moment:-
- Turn on or off certain Hue light scenes throughout the home or office
- Send a home ETA to Britt. This will automatically get my current location and calculates how long until I get home and automatically sends a message to Britt.
- Britt uses one that automatically sends a message to me if she’s going to be working back late. All she has to do is choose from a menu of roughly long e.g. half hour, hour, couple of hours etc.
Over the next couple of months, I’m going to really be putting Siri Shortcuts to use as I go about automating more of my life so I can focus on the things that matter most.
