Yes when I hold on the home button Siri
Does not appear. Also I don't have the microphone on my email or my messaging texting . my iPad is not the newest it's about two years old but it did have Siri when I bought it .

Thank you, Jim

Let's check this first.

On your iPad, go to settings - general - Siri

Is Siri turned on there? Turn it off and then on. Let me know whether that resolves your issue

Jim,

Is there a reason you gave me a bad service?

Please understand that you are rating my service and not the answer. We are still in the troubleshooting stage and it might take several steps to resolve the issue. Please rate only after we finish our troubleshooting. The rating is going against my records and credibility in the site. So please rate me bad only if you feel I am too bad.

Please give me your iPad serial number. You can find that in settings - general - about

The iPad 1 and iPad 2 does not have Siri. May be you are having one of those. I can find the iPad type only through the serial number. I gave the first troubleshooting step based on your saying that it did have Siri and now it don't.

Jim,

I am really sorry. Yours is an iPad 2 wifi, and it does not have siri. Siri is available only from iPad 3 on wards. You will need one of the newer iPads.

But I am quite confused by your saying that it did have siri earlier. Were you using a different iPad then possibly?

Thank you
Vinod

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
