Waking Up Easier with Siri’s Personal Update

  • Siri’s Personal Update feature can give you an easy summary of your day.
  • It can give you info on the weather, calendar events, travel times, reminders, and a brief news summary.
  • The news source for the US is NPR but you can choose from CNN, Washington Post, or Fox News.
  • HomePod can also give you Personal Updates if connected to your iPhone.

Siri’s Personal Update feature, introduced with iPadOS 14.2 in November 2020, can give you an easy summary of your day with info on the weather, calendar events, travel times, reminders, and a brief news summary. To invoke it, say, “Siri, what’s my update?” You can switch news sources by saying, “Siri, switch to [news source].” If you don’t want the news podcast at the end, you can say, “Siri, remove news from my daily update.” The news source for the US is NPR, but you can also choose from CNN, Washington Post, or Fox News.

If connected to your iPhone, HomePod can also give you a Personal Update. And it can distinguish between different household members. To set up voice recognition for Siri, the owner of the HomePod needs to add them as users, then check that voice recognition and Personal Requests are enabled. HomePod supports up to six users in a home.

Siri’s Personal Update can be useful when you’re in that state of early-morning brain fog. You want to know what lies ahead, but you’re too sleepy to reach for your iPhone or iPad. Luckily, Apple’s got your back.
