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.

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.

What's New in iOS 11.4.1

The iOS 11.4 update added Messages in iCloud and AirPlay 2, but it also brought issues along with it. The iOS 11.4.1 update keeps these long anticipated features and includes fixes for some iOS 11.4 problems. 

Specifically the iOS 11.4.1 update;

  • Fixes an issue that prevented some users from viewing the last known location of their AirPods in Find My iPhone. 
  • Improves reliability of syncing mail, contacts and notes with Exchange accounts.  

This update also includes other bug fixes and security upgrades. It's possible that this update includes a fix for bad iOS 11.4 battery life. 

Messages in the Cloud allows you to backup your iMessage conversations to the cloud just like you back up your notes, contacts and photos. This means they are backed up in case something happens to your phone, but that's not all. 

Messages in the Cloud syncs deleted messages and threads across your iCloud devices. This means everything will show up the same across your Apple devices. With this in place you should see the same conversations everywhere, all of the time. 

This also backs up the photos and attachments in the cloud so you have more room on your iPhone or iPad. When you get a new device all of the messages sync to that device so you don't lose anything.
