Siri is one of the most versatile virtual assistants available on the market today. In addition to asking her questions you can also have her remotely control any HomeKit smart home devices that you own and much more – all using just your voice!
But one thing you may not love about Siri is her constant voice feedback. Sometimes you don’t want her to answer a question out loud, or verbally confirm that she just shut your lights off in another room. You just want her to do what you ask and keep her comments to a minimum.
Thankfully, you can do exactly that by making a few quick changes to her settings.
Here’s how to mute Siri on your own iPhone in a matter of seconds.
1. Open the “Settings” app on your iPhone.
2. Scroll through the list until you find the option labeled “Siri & Search.”
3. Choose the option labeled “Siri Responses.”
4. In the “Spoken Responses” section of the screen, choose either “When Silent Mode Is Off” or “Only with Hey Siri.”
That’s it! If you choose “When Silent Mode Is Off,” Siri will only speak if your iPhone’s ringer is currently on. If you choose the other option, Siri will only verbally respond to you if you engage with her via the “Hey Siri” voice command.

Why does my iPad bong after I hang up from a face time call on my iPhone. It won’t shut off until I manually Hit the home button on the iPad.
Wow! That’s really helpful. Thank you!

Thank you so much, I was getting aggravated with Siri answering questions asked on the TV or at a nearby person’s conversation. Sometimes gets embarrassing
Thank you for ALL your tips!
