With the introduction of iOS 12, Apple bought some new exciting features and one of them is the Shortcuts app. It allows users to create workflows and perform complex tasks with just a single tap.
The Shortcuts app not only gives you access to pre-made Siri shortcuts but also gives you the ability to create custom shortcuts for yourself whenever you want to. It also has support for third-party apps too, so you can create very useful and powerful shortcuts.
Many people don’t know that you can share customized Siri Shortcuts with anyone online and also use their customized Siri Shortcuts too. If you have created a powerful and useful Siri Shortcut and want to share it with your friends then you can do that just by following some simple steps.
How to share custom Siri Shortcut(s) with others through iCloud Link:
