In iOS 10, Apple has finally opened Siri to third-party developers, offering Siri’s ability to work with and control many non-Apple apps. You now can have Siri send messages to people you are connected with in Linkedln or ask Siri for a ride in Uber. Furthermore, you can use Apple’s virtual helper to send money to your friends or family with PayPal on your iPhone.
In this tutorial, we will walk you through steps to use Siri to send money with PayPal on iPhone. Before we begin, make sure that you have set up PayPal account on your device.
Steps to use Siri to send money with PayPal on iPhone
Step one: The first thing you need to do is to update your PayPal app to the latest version. If not, update it first before moving ahead
Step two: Next up, you are now supposed to activate Siri by simply pressing and holding the Home button
Step three: Now, all you need to do now is to tell Siri “send + money to + person”. Once you are done, you simply select the Yes button. Doing this way, Siri will access your PayPal data you previously set on your device
Step four: In the next screen, you are supposed to select the email or the phone number of the person you wish to send money to
Step five: All you have to do now is to tap on Send button to confirm the transfer
That’s it! The process is pretty simple, but make sure that you have your PayPal account and you have set it up on your iPhone.
The new feature works in selected countries in the world. Make sure that you live in the supported regions including France, Germany, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates (Arabic), the United States and more.
With iOS 10, Apple has taken Siri to a whole new level that challenges other virtual helpers in the market like Microsoft’s Cortana or Google Assistant. If you are now using an iPhone running iOS 10 or later, make sure that you check out Siri.
