    How does Siri know it is me when asking my phone/Siri to do something. If it works for anyone in the room saying "Hey Siri", I can think of some bad things happening in a room full of iPhone users.

    You record your voice saying Hey Siri. The option is there in iOS 9.

    I must be missing it. Do not see a place to teach Siri my voice. I am on OS9

    Settings, general, siri, allow hey siri, then a thing pops up saying "Set up hey siri" and you record your voice. I'm on a 6 btw, but I don't see why older models wouldn't have it.

    Yeah until I found out about the voice training I was looking forward to running in to a Starbucks and yelling, "Hey Siri! Turn on airplane mode!"

    I was thinking the same, except walking into a bar late at night and saying Hey Siri: CALL MY WIFE!

    I have had about 10 people try and I have tried on a couple other's 'hey Siri' and it has been 100% rejected.
