Start by pressing and holding the home button to activate Siri.
Then… just ask!
You can ask for a final score.
Today I asked, “What was the result of today’s Manchester United game?” Within seconds, I got my answer.
You can ask about a game in progress.
“What is the score for Cincinnati vs Temple?
You can ask about a future game.
“When is the next Cincinnati basketball game?”
I find that I am gradually using Siri more and more. At first it was a novelty, but it has evolved into a very useful tool. (Especially if you want to drag your sports enthusiast out of the house :) )
