iOS: How to Use Siri Hands Free From Your iPhone Lock Screen


It’s conceivable to utilize Siri hands free from your bolt screen, yet now and then you may keep running into a touch of inconvenience as I did. This is what I found out about it, and how I tackled my concern.


When I initially got my AirPods, I was satisfied at having the capacity to utilize Siri just with a twofold tap of my finger. I like having the capacity to tune in to music while cooking supper, and now I can leave my iPhone around my work area and change melodies with my AirPods.

However, as of late, I saw that Siri was acting unique. When I attempted to change music with my AirPods, I was compelled to open my iPhone with my unique mark first. It appeared to be irregular when I didn’t experience difficulty previously, yet then I made sense of the issue.


This is what happened. For more security, I chose to conceal warning sneak peaks on the bolt screen. You can do this on iOS by going to Settings > Notifications > Show Previews. When you select “When Unlocked” despite everything you get warnings, however the substance is covered up until the point that you open it. This is an incredible element, and it keeps individuals from seeing your warnings when your iPhone is on the table.

But at the same time it’s the motivation behind why Siri quit working. Despite the fact that I permitted Siri access on the bolt screen, under Settings > Touch ID and Passcode, regardless I needed to open the telephone. Furthermore, that is on the grounds that the warning reviews meddled. I don’t know why this happens, however you can settle the issue by changing the notice sneak peaks to Always. This is turned on of course on iPhone X in view of Face ID.

Ideally in a future iOS refresh, Apple can permit both Siri get to and shrouded warning sneak peaks. It’s an exchange off we need to make, since it implies anybody can utilize Siri if your telephone is opened. However, it makes it difficult to utilize Siri with AirPods. Protection versus accommodation, of course.
