    Hello

    Is the new hands free "Hey Siri" feature working for you all?

    I have the new iPhone 6 with all options under "Siri" turned on. I know it needs to be connected, yet it still doesn't work. Oddly, it does work with my mothers iPhone 5s. I can't find any differences in our settings.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you

    That feature might be turned off for you. Go to Settings -> General -> Allow "Hey Siri"

    pretty sure the phone has to be plugged in for Hey Siri to work

    Go into your Passcode Settings and make sure Siri is accessible when locked.

    Having the same problem.

    Hey Siri works when Siri is already open. But "hey Siri" won't start Siri even with the phone unlocked.

    Yes, the blatant ripoff off "Ok Google" is working for me.

    Which came first? Siri or Google Now or whatever it is called?

    It is for me, and "Hey Siri" doesn't work for me either. I'm on iPhone 6, plugged in to power, all Siri settings turned on, including the one under passcode lock, and it won't work for me either. Probably a bug that should be corrected in the forthcoming update next month.

    Working for me just fine on my iPhone 6 64GB, even tested a few different commands.

    Have those of you with issues turned Hey Siri OFF, then ON again?

    Had the same issue as others noted when I first upgraded, but it seems to be fine after turning it off then on again.

    Slightly off topic note - Has anyone noticed that "Hey, Siri" works when not plugged into a power source, but only after initially holding the home button, asking Siri a question, and leaving Siri up?

    We had a long talk tonight:cool:
