    If I am in a car full of people and they all have iPhones and I say "Hey Siri", who's iPhone answers?

    (Assuming they would all be on the newest update that does not require being plugged in)

    All of them.

    I've done similar at night, not realize my wife had already plugged hers in as well, and both her phone and mine responded to me.

    Was about to asking the same question - there is no such update where 'Hey Siri' works without the iPhone being plugged in.

    Well that's going to be weird.

    There likely won't be an update like that until there's new hardware that would allow to support that without additional/extra noticeable battery drain. In which case there might be some improvements added to that feature such as being able to customize it to something other than just "Hey Siri" and/or being able to distinguish voices to one degree or another so that it mainly would only respond to you and not just random people (or a TV or something).

    I've been able to have 'Hey Siri' work when I'm not plugged in and I have no idea how I am able to. I'm on the latest software. 8.2.

    "Hey Siri" without being plugged in will only work when the iPhone is in Carplay mode. Until now you need to plug the iPhone in order to use Carplay.


    On a different note, if you want to use Hey Siri without being plugged in, in normal mode, you have to let the Siri interface stay onscreen. That way it's always listening.
