    So Siri and dictation stopped working on my iPhone 6. I did some Googling and found that my secondary microphone appears to have stopped working. I tested it with the voice memos and taking a video with the front facing camera. I'm out of warranty since I purchased it a couple of months after launch. Has anyone had any luck getting Apple to give them a replacement out of the goodness of their heart? I'm going to go into the Apple store next time I'm down that way and play dumb and see what they say.

    Perhaps your CC covers the 2nd year of warranty?

    Good suggestion, but I financed through T-Mobile. It's been paid off for a while though.

    Define "stopped working" for the studio audience.

    Um... They don't work when I use them. It doesn't pick up my voice. The secondary microphone they use must have broken (according to many Google results). Everything else works perfectly fine though.

    Why not go to the Apple Store and give it a shot? They have been hit or miss with me throughout the years but sometimes you get lucky. Maybe the microphone got loose inside and they could simply reconnect it? Worst case scenario is they tell you it would cost money to be replaced/fixed and you can just decline.
