Know the Basics
If you aren’t familiar with Siri Shortcuts, the basic premise is pretty simple.
It’s an app that can automate various tasks into “workflows” that can be activated with a single tap or voice command.
It’s like coding, without needing to know any sort of code.
For example, with the proper Shortcut set up, you could say “Siri, I’m heading home,” and Shortcuts can enable your commute playlist, text your significant other, set your house’s thermostat, and open up Waze — all in one go.
But it can be even more powerful than that, and all Shortcuts are also fully customizable to your own needs.
