    Sorry if this has been asked before, but it is kind of a hard thing to search for.

    Is anyone else having a problem with Siri, where she will not say her responses? Like, she does what I ask, and I can see the response on the screen, but she will not say it audibly. And then later in the day, several hours later, she will randomly start saying all of the responses she should have said all at once one-by-one.

    Example:

    8:00AM: Me - "Hey Siri, set an alarm for 3:00PM."
    (I get confirmation on screen, but Siri doesn't say anything)
    8:05AM: Me - "Hey Siri, make a note to get milk."
    (I get confirmation on screen, but Siri doesn't say anything)
    8:10AM: Me - "Hey Siri, what time is it?"
    (I get the answer on screen, but Siri doesn't say anything)
    ...
    2:00PM: Siri - "OKAY I HAVE SET YOUR ALARM FOR 3:00PM OKAY I CREATED THE NOTE IT IS 8:10AM"

    Better late than never? ;)

    Siri has these moods now & then. It's what makes her (or him!) 'real' :p.

    They're sometimes caused by poor mobile reception though, as obviously Siri needs a network connection to function.

    I think if reception or network connectivity were the problem, Siri would not work at all. I can even ask Siri if my local sports team won last night and she can tell me (show me) no problem.

    Why would Siri be able to do everything except speak?

    Alright, I think I noticed something else.

    It seems to be that Siri "catches up" a few minutes after being plugged in and charging.

    :confused:

    Might be time to call Apple, if it's a frequent issue.

    Any one find a solution to this problem? My iPhone X just started doing similar things. I am a truck driver so I use voice commands all day. All of a sudden I can’t voice dial anyone. Siri hears me and what I said to her displays on the screen but no call is made. If I tell her to text someone it will type the text and I have to push send instead of her asking me if I want her to send it. Also after I plug my phone in she will start talking. Saying the last few commands or messages or phone. Alls I told her to make. But doesn’t do anything with them.

    It think Siri is slow when the internet connection is patchy.

    Might want to try a restore...

    I have never experienced issues with Siri unless there were cellular / network issues.

    Did anyone ever figure out a fix? My iPhone X has been doing the exact same thing. Sometimes I will get a string of Siri responses over 24 hours later. My navigation is also affected.

    I ended up using iTunes to make a backup of my phone, then did a factory reset. Applied my back up (nothing changed, it just automatically reinstalled everything how it was). And then my problem was gone. It’s a pain but it worked

    Thanks for the update. I’ll give that a try. Total pain, but worth it if it works.

    It totally is. And be warned... the backup will also save pictures so I’d suggest doing that manually if you have a lot. That seemed to be the most time consuming part for me.
