"Hey Siri"...[No answer]

One of the cool features of iOS 8/9 is that if your device is plugged in, you can invoke Siri hands-free by saying "Hey Siri".  You can wake up and get the weather without getting out of bed!

But I felt like an idiot when I tried if for the first time and repeated "Hey Siri's" fell on deaf ears.  So much for impressing the wife.

Duh.  The "Hey Siri" feature has to be configured; it's not turned on by default. 

Go into Settings->General->Siri.  Then turn on Hey Siri:

You then go through a few screens so Siri learns your voice and you're good. Yep.  Works a little better if you turn it on...


  1. Apple is always improving their operating system, in the newest one it's even better. Thanks for this post, looking forward to more from you soon. Keep up the good work.


  2. An outstanding share! I've just forwarded this onto a friend who was conducting a little research on this. And he in fact bought me lunch because I found it for him... lol. So let me reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to discuss this matter here on your website. apple itunes login
