How to purchase movie tickets using Siri

With the release of iOS 6.1, iOS users in the U.S. can now ask Siri to help them purchase tickets to a movie at a local theater.

Apple has released iOS 6.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users. Among other fixes and new additions is the ability to purchase movie tickets using Siri, as originally reported back in November .

Siri's new capability requires iOS 6.1, the Fandango app to be installed on the iOS device, and you'll also need to be in the U.S. to purchase tickets.

Once you have updated your device and have Fandango installed, buying tickets is as simple as launching Siri and asking for tickets to a specific movie time, or asking for a list of movies and times at a local theater. You can then view the currently playing flicks, showtimes and purchase tickets.

The video above walks you through where to find the list of potential commands to buy tickets, as well as the process of actually purchasing the tickets on your iOS device.
