    I am not sure if anyone else is having this has gotten worse over time and I am just lazy to go over to the Apple store to check it out. My Siri will not read incoming text messages. We I tell her to read it....she says incoming message from....and then reply or read it again. Never the message. Anyone else have this problem? I am a constant texter and this is driving me nuts!!

    Go to settings notifications and make sure under messages you have show preview on. After that, just say read text message. If you've read it already, she won't read it as she only reads new messages.

    Thank you for the post. I was wondering why it won't work asking siri to read old messages. Now I know :)

    You also noticed how it does not always say you name too?

    It will show "How can I help you, <name>?" but will only actually say "How can I help you?". Not always though, just seems to be certain things. Its strange.
