Are there any other ways to check how much time is left in the timer besides the lock screen?

    Can the timer count down not be placed by the batter indicator or something?

    Can I use 3D Touch to check it?

    It seems like I always have to go back into the app.

    I use Hey Siri, works like a champ. Yesterday my 6s Plus sitting on table in same room as I am about 10 feet away. Had my hands full, so I said, "Hey Siri, set timer for ten minutes." The phone comes out of sleep, Siri says timer is set for ten minutes. About 7 minutes later I say, "Hey Siri, how much time left on timer". Phone wakes from sleep, Siri say "two minutes 29 seconds left on timer".

    This was like a wow moment, 10 feet from sleeping phone, never touched it, never looked at screen. It worked great. I ask it what temperature is, or what time it is, and it just plane answers. Way cool.
