5 Ask Siri for Help with Passwords, Turning on the Flashlight, and Shortcuts
Siri gains some new tricks in iOS 12. Including the ability to quickly look up passwords. Instead of searching through all your passwords looking for the one you need, just ask Siri to help. You can say something like “Hey Siri, show me my passwords,” or “Hey Siri, find the password for <insert name here>.” Siri will prompt you for your passcode, or use Touch ID or Face ID to make sure it’s really you. Then it will show you the password you need.
Because authentication is required, nobody else should be able to get into your passwords keeping them safe and secure.
Siri also has a few other new abilities such as being able to turn on the flashlight for you and, of course, running your new Shortcuts.
Of course, Siri has a long way to go to become a true virtual assistant. Like more natural conversation, better contextual understanding, and the ability to make calls and converse with real people like Google Duplex. Maybe iOS 13 will be Siri’s moment.
