How to Make Siri Respond to Your Voice Even When iPhone’s Screen is Covered

Get Siri to Respond Even When iPhone is Placed Face Down

First and foremost, ensure that your iPhone or iPad is running iOS 13.4 or later. If you are yet to update your iOS device, head over to Settings -> General -> Software Update and then download and install the latest iteration of iOS. Do note that your device needs to be connected to Wi-Fi and have at least 50% battery.

1. On your iPhone or iPad, launch the Settings app.

Open Settings app on your iPhone and iPad

2. Now, tap on Accessibility.

Now, tap on Accessibility.

3. Next, scroll down and hit Siri located under the General section.

Tap on Siri

4. Up next, turn on the switch for Always Listen for “Hey ‌Siri‌”.

Enable Always On for Hey Siri

That’s pretty much it! Going forward, Siri will always listen to your Siri voice commands irrespective of whether the iPhone’s screen is covered or not.

Though this feature is quite helpful, at times you may want to turn off the “Always listen for Hey Siri”, especially when you wish to have some peace of mind during leisure times. To disable it, simply follow the same steps mentioned above and then turn off the switch in the end.

Another notable Siri improvement that has come in iOS 13.4 is the ability to use the virtual assistant to go back to the Home screen. Just trigger Siri and say something like, ” go to the Home screen.” Now, the personal assistant will exit the current app and return to the Home screen. This is really helpful for people with restricted mobility.
