    Hello, I hope you can help me.
    I believe my new iPhone 6s plus 64 gb is not working fine:
    - Health app is not showing the right data for "flights climbed", previously I was using an iPhone 6 and every it counted well every time I climbed a floor in my house; iPhone 6s plus doesn't.
    - Siri doesn't vibrate when I activate it with my voice, it makes the regular Siri sound; if I activate it with touch ID it doesn't make any sound nor vibrate, in both cases iPhone 6 did vibrate.

    Is it normal or do I have an issue?

    Please help me.

    Siri doesn't make noises on 6S, because it is always listening, even if you have Hey Siri turned off. Try it....Turn Hey Siri off, give siri a command, and while you are talking activate siri. Even if you say a word or two before you activate siri, she will still pick up what you say. Soooo, there is no need for an activation tone on the 6S.....Press the button and talk...

    I can't help you with the Health app...don't use it...

    That's my point, this Siri is making noise, when I say "hey Siri" it makes the sund and starts listening, if I activate it trought touch ID it doesn't vibrate nor makes the sound, that's why I think it is wrong.

    Nope, it's not wrong.....Siri doesn't make a noise when Hey Siri is not activated, because you are holding the device, and know when you activate it. You don't have to physically activate Hey Siri, thus the noise.
    Quit worrying, and enjoy your new phone.

    I don't understand you, could you explain me please this:
    - when you say "hey Siri", does it has to make the sound or vibrate or nothing?
    - when you push touch ID to bring Siri, does it has to vibrate or nothing?

    I remember that in iPnone 6 if it was charging and I said "hey Siri" it vibrated; if I was holding it and bring Siri it did vibrate too.

    Hey Siri shouldn't vibrate on any iPhone. It should play the sound instead in case you're not holding the device.

    Correct.....That is what I have been trying to tell him..

    Edit...I have never tried it, but I wonder if Hey Siri will vibrate if the phone is set to silent and the setting "Vibrate on Silent" is selected.

    I did understand now, the holding thing.
    Thank you very much.

    Now, for the iPhone 6 it does vibrate no matter if it is in silence or not, I even remember some posts here where the people was complaining because Siri no longer sound but vibrate.

    When Apple gave me a replacement 6s Plus, I restored from a back up which caused the new device not to record any health data at all. I had to do a wipe and set phone up as new and health kit seemed to work fine. Did you restore from back up?

    I did set up the iPhone as new, didn't restore anything, no iTunes, no iCloud backup.
