iOS Contact Relationships

iOS Contact Relationships


Did you know you can add contact relationships to your iPhone contacts?   It’s a pretty cool feature!

First you need to teach your Siri who you are.   Go to Settings, General, Siri Settings, My Info.  When you click on the arrow it will take you to your address book and you search for yourself (or add yourself) in there.  Select yourself and then exit this setting.

Next, you’ll want to go to your own contact information and you edit it to add relationships.

Add dad

When you click on add related name it will bring up father or spouse (depends on I’m not sure what!).  Select the arrow and it will take you to your address book where you can now search for your spouse or father and add them.   You can also do this with the CEO of a company and add their assistant to their relationship.  You can also do this through Siri, by saying Donald ********* is my Father.  Once you do that you can tell Siri, “Call CEO’s assistant”!  On a side note, this made me think of something Star Wars related.  Tell Siri, “Luke, I am your father”  for a giggle!

Once you’ve added the relationship, select Done in the top right hand corner.

Exit out of this and then try out calling someone through Siri!
