Blake Jun 04, 2021

Many users find iPhone 12 Siri is not responding. How to fix it? REWA has brought the relevant solution to you.

Why is iPhone 12 Siri not working?

Those who use Siri to help to complete various operations may find that when the iPhone screen is down, or when the camera is blocked, Siri may not work while being asked. In fact, this is normal, unrelated to mobile phone hardware or software conditions.

Previously, users can only use Siri when the iPhone screen faces up. But now, for users to use Siri more conveniently, Apple has improved this feature in a newer system version.

If you want Siri to work normally at any time, turn on Listen for “Hey Siri” in iPhone settings.
