This page will let you know what Siri can do when using the Timer of the iPhone if the correct wording is used.

to use a Timer Siri can set timers for any length you want. Siri can also let you know how much time is left on the clock for that timed event.  To use this feature, say:

  1. Hey Siri set timer for 30 minutes.

2.      Hey Siri how much time is left and Siri will tell you where you are in the timed event.

3.      Hey Siri reset the timer for 40 minutes if you want to extend or decrease the timed event.

4.      Hey Siri Stop the timer if you want it to end early.


Note: if you want to set more than one timer, you need to set alarms as only one timer can run at one time

Siri can set many alarms for you, anytime, any day. Just say:


  1. Hey Siri set alarm for a time in the same day.
