Anyone else? I can't find the setting for it...
It does seem to be gone; I didn't realize they would pull it.
It was gone in one of the earlier betas already. (Probably so that it doesn't get confused/in the way of raise to listen option in Messages for voice messaging.)
Mine still has it. Judged got turned off. It's under general - Siri
No raise to speak in those settings on my iPhone 5. What device do you have?
wasnt it replaced by "hey siri"?
It isn't all that great, anyway. You have to raise the phone in a certain way to get it to work.
"Hey Siri" only works when the device is plugged in.
I know that. I was merely confirming that the old feature has in fact been replaced by the new one. I didn't say that the new feature worked the same.
You might not have liked it, but I used it all the time. No need to be grateful a feature you didn't need to use anyway is gone!
It was removed to lessen confusion about how to activate audio messages.
The "Raise to Speak" was ALWAYS going off in my pocket.
I'd bend down to pick something up, and the Siri tone would play. I'd have to grab my phone and hit the Home button, or else it would start talking (loudly) about how it didn't understand me.
It was a terrible feature that I've kept off since Siri first had it.
Why would it do that when the phone is locked?
Never used that feature anyway. Must have been a big battery drain.
how dumb are users?
I use it all the time. If its a battery drain then turning it off must give me a month long battery.
In all seriousness it only works when the screen is active so the system is awake. You can't just hold your locked iPhone upto your ear and trigger siri. Have to press home button first to wake it up. And if you have use siri on lock screen turned off it won't work.
The reason I use it is walking along replying to texts and sending them. Much easier than looking down and typing. Plus your so much more aware of your surroundings and when you notice others texting it looks like they are stuck in the past.
I must say, I, too, am going to miss this feature. Became pretty natural and easier to do than holding done the home button and speaking down into the phone rather than up to your ear/face.
Inexplicable they would just flat out remove this useful feature. You don't want to use it, fine, don't enable it in the Siri settings (it is disabled by default, you know).
I found it very easy to use once you understood you just had to rotate it from it's normal horizontal position to a vertical position next to your ear. Was much more natural than pressing then holding then waiting for it to engage. Long presses of anything just seem to be slow...
not to mention how private it was outside. you just looked like you were on the phone. now you press siri and everyone hears. who made the decision to can it?
I'm sure it had some conflict with the new features, so they had to remove it to have the snapchat function.
I also wonder if that feature worked inconsistently on the new iPhones.
Or maybe we are in the minority
Wish I'd known this, I might have waited.
I hope this comes back as an option, or there's a jailbreak app for it at some time. I used that raise to speak every day.
One of the main rules to developing technology. Always try to think about the lowest denominator and work your way up. Still, iOS can be confusing for some users (my in law for example).
