Watch The Rock’s Insane New Siri Ad

The Rock is in a crazy long new Siri commercial titled Dominate the Day. In this Rock X Siri ad, we see The Rock use Siri through a long day in the life of Duane Johnson. You may have seen part of it on TV, but now you can see the rest of The Rock’s Siri ad.

Unlike most Siri ads that only last 30 seconds or less, the new Dwayne The Rock Johnson Siri ad lasts nearly four minutes, so you won’t be able to see it all on TV. The Rock is clearly using our Siri tips and tricks to get more done in his busy day, and so can you.

Here’s a list of the Siri features The Rock uses in his new Siri ad;

  1. Hey Siri Read my Schedule
  2. Hey Siri Show me my Life Goals List
  3. Hey Siri Get my a Lyft Ride
  4. Hey Siri What’s the Temperature in Rome
  5. Hey Siri Read me my last email.
  6. Hey Siri Show me Photos of My Fashion Line

While your day may not be as jam packed as The Rock’s, you can still take advantage of these Siri features to streamline what you can get done while on the go. If you have the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, you can use Hey Siri without it being plugged in. You can train Siri to recognize your voice so that Hey Siri only responds to your voice.

Go to Settings -> Siri -> Allow Hey Siri and then if prompted, train Siri to recognize your voice. This is something that you set up when you turn on your new iPhone, but if you skipped it, this will let you get back up to speed.

This gets you up to speed on the new Siri features in iOS 10, but there are even more Siri features coming in iOS 11 this fall. If The Rock was running the iOS 11 beta, he could also use Siri to translate a message, send someone money with Apple Pay and more.
