Do you want to make your interactions with your iPhone 11 even more convenient and hands-free? Then turning on Siri, Apple’s intelligent virtual assistant, is the way to go.

Siri can help you perform various tasks, answer questions, and even have a little chat with you. Let’s dive into the steps to turn on Siri on your iPhone 11.

Step 1: Accessing the Settings

To begin, unlock your iPhone 11 and locate the “Settings” app on your home screen. It usually appears as a gear icon. Tap on it to open the Settings menu.

Step 2: Finding Siri & Search

Once you are in the Settings menu, scroll down until you see “Siri & Search.” It should be listed amongst other options like “Control Center” and “Display & Brightness.”

Step 3: Enabling Siri

Tap on “Siri & Search” to access the Siri settings. Look for the toggle switch next to “Listen for ‘Hey Siri'” and ensure it is turned on. This feature allows Siri to be activated by saying “Hey Siri” while your iPhone is nearby.

You can also enable or disable other options like “Press Side Button for Siri” or “Allow Siri When Locked” based on your preferences.


  • If this is your first time using Siri, you may need to configure it further by following the instructions provided by your iPhone.
  • Siri requires an internet connection (Wi-Fi or cellular data) to function properly.

Step 4: Testing Siri

To check if everything is working correctly, say “Hey Siri” or press and hold the side button (or the home button if you have an older model) to activate Siri. If Siri responds and asks how it can help you, congratulations! You have successfully turned on Siri on your iPhone 11.

Remember, Siri is always ready to assist you, so don’t hesitate to ask questions or give commands. Whether it’s setting reminders, sending messages, or even playing your favorite song, Siri is there to make your life easier.


  • Ensure that your iPhone’s microphone is not covered or obstructed for better voice recognition.
  • Experiment with different voice commands to discover the full potential of Siri.

Now that Siri is activated on your iPhone 11, enjoy the convenience and efficiency it brings to your daily routine!
