does it show the words "hey siri" on the screen?

perhaps it's just a combo of you raising your wrist when you cough, and the noise after that causes her to start listening. for raise to speak, you don't have to say hey siri.

or possible that the button is being held down when you cough if your wrist is bent back.

It's none of those.

I just cough and hey siri is waiting for me to say something. I know it's siri, because it vibrates then displays the hey siri part.

Works flawlessly, but it's the first time a cough has activated it. Double cough as well.

Hey Siri has been playing up on my iPad, getting activated by everything; YouTube, TV programmes, FaceTime calls on my phone etc. I wouldn't mind, but it's being activated by sentences that don't sound remotely like "Hey, Siri".

It might have nothing to do with the cough and everything to do with the movement of your arm when you cover your mouth. Siri always activates on mine when I ask a patient to touch his nose and mimic the movement while talking...
