An IFTTT-type service where a user can correct sentences and the voice assistant will perform actions based on it.
The company has made drastic changes with the iOS 13 update. It now displays Siri shortcuts ready to use from installed apps. Apple apps, such as Safari, Mail, Gallery, Messages, and Cards, benefit because they are tightly integrated into the operating system and cannot be replaced by third-party alternatives.
In this article, we are going to talk about the top seven Siri shortcuts for the Safari browser, which you can use to customize your browsing experience. The post will also include some tips for using Siri like a pro for fluent use of Safari.
3. Search using a different search engine
This one is quite simple. Siri can be asked to search for a phrase using another search engine. By default, Apple uses the Google search engine to ask queries from the Siri menu and Spotlight.
However, users can change the behavior with Siri's voice. You can ask Siri to search for the term using another search engine.
You can try "Hey Siri, Bing search GuidingTech", and it will open the Safari browser using the mentioned search engine.
4. News from the browser
This one is super useful for news junkies like me. With a single touch, you can access the main world news on the device. Here's how to set it up using Siri.
Go to Siri Shortcuts> Gallery and scroll down to the News section. Select the "Browse Latest News" tab from the menu and add it to Siri. By default, it is configured to open news from Techmeme, NY Times, BBC, CNN and NPR.
In the widget menu of the shortcut, users can tap the navigation shortcut at the top of the news and select from the five news sources. You can also modify them.
To change the news source, go to Shortcuts> tap the three-dot menu in the news section of the browser and add or remove web URLs.
7. Create a PDF
With this shortcut, one can make a PDF of a web page from the share menu.
Just go to Shortcuts> Gallery and select Create PDF Shortcut.
After that you can create a PDF of a web page using the share menu in the Safari browser. When you choose to create a PDF from the share menu, the script runs and creates a detailed PDF from the opened web page.
