How to Edit your Question to Siri on your iPhone or iPad

Let’s say you asked Siri a question, but you made a mistake. You could always ask the question again, but there is another way to get the answer you need.

You look and listen to the answer and you say to yourself, “Whoops!! I didn’t mean Wednesday, I meant Thursday!”

Instead of asking the question again, an alternate (often quicker) solution would be to just scroll UP on your screen and tap on your original question. By scrolling UP, you reveal the question you originally asked:
