How to Edit Calendar Events with Siri

How to  Edit Calendar Events with Siri

I'm finding it so much easier to interact with my personal information apps via Siri compared to opening the app and entering the information, especially setting a calendar event or a reminder. You just speak a few words and it's done. What I didn't know, until recently, is that you can also use Siri to edit events.

In order to edit an event using Siri, you can simply say, "Change my Tuesday appointment at 2 o'clock to 2:15." Siri will respond, "OK, I'll make that change to your appointment. Shall I schedule it?"

Siri then shows you the calendar appointment with the new time and gives you the opportunity to confirm or cancel the change.

You can also use Siri to change the time, title, attendees, or location of an appointment. To change the location, for example, you can say, "Change the location of my Tuesday appointment at 2 o'clock." Siri will reply, "OK, what's the new location for this meeting?"

As before, Siri will reply, "OK, I'll make that change to your event. Shall I schedule it?" You'll then see the Calendar entry and have the opportunity to confirm or cancel.
