It may be that Siri is responding but the volume is down. So, you are not able to listen. We will suggest you access Siri and increase the volume if she is not speaking or responding as expected.

4. Check your iPhone’s Microphone

The next method that you can try to fix the issue is by checking your iPhone’s Microphone. One of the reasons you are facing Siri not working or not talking issues is due to your iPhone microphone not working. If the microphones on your iPhone aren’t working properly, Siri might not hear what you say or reply to you. Make sure the microphones are unobstructed and clean. Remove the screen protectors or cases that might cover the microphones, clean the mics with an extremely soft toothbrush, and then try Siri once more. If Siri is still not working, then try the next step.

  • Go to the General option.
  • Choose the Siri option.
  • Now, go to language.
  • Select the language you will speak, not the one in which you want Siri to talk to you.
