50 Things You Didn't Know Your iPhone Could Do

Posted: Updated:

You probably already knew that your iPhone's virtual assistant, Siri, could send text messages and set alarms. But did you knows that it can also show you pictures of puppies?

This new video by PhoneBuff shows off 50 of Siri's coolest features, many of which you may not have used before. Did you know your iPhone can translate things into Morse code or flip a coin. Siri is more helpful (and fun) than you may realize.

For a bonus: Ask Siri who let the dogs out.

Originally started as a DARPA-backed project to build an intelligent virtual assistant, Siri was purchased by Apple in 2010. As The Huffington Post reported earlier this year, the company cut functions like restaurant bookings (and swear words) from Siri's repertoire when it integrated the assistant into iOS.

But as can be seen in the video above, Apple has updated Siri. It now can save you a spot at your favorite restaurant (among other things) with ease.
