Can someone explain to me how to activate Siri on iPhone 4?

I tried to find the option but I cannot find it anywhere in the menu or settings.

Do I need to install Siri from the App Store?

Siri in not available for the iPhone 4 or older devices by design.

However, you can bypass Apple's design and have Siri on your iPhone 4 or older devices, if you going to do an iphone jailbreak.

What is jailbreak? I am not very skilled when it comes to iphone hacks.

Hello oldman47,

Jailbreaking your iphone basically means you will get access to certain features that the designers didn't want you to have.

However, all these benefits have a cost: the operating system might not be as stable as before and you will receive latest updates later than the users that didn't jailbreaked their iphone.

You can follow this tutorial if you plan to jailbreak the iphone:

As pointed above, Siri is not available on older devices by design.

But you can still install a third party app that mimics the functionality of Siri. One of the most popular of these is Dragon Go! from a company called Nuance.

Also, you can use the built in voice control. It might not be as fancy as Siri but it does the same thing.

Thank you very much! I have installed Dragon Go! and it works like a charm.
