Once you've initiated a conversation with Siri by asking a question, you can follow up with additional requests by directly stating the desired commands. This approach is part of Apple's effort to make Siri more user-friendly and integrated seamlessly into your interactions. Siri iOS 17 has come a long way with the ability to drop the ‘’Hey’’ from ‘’Hey Siri’’. This modification is triggered by default by updating to iOS 17. You can check it by saying just ‘’Siri, what’s the temperature outside’’. However, the iPhone allows you to drop the ‘’Hey’’.  Here’s how to find those settings.
  • Go to the Settings app
  • Then scroll down and look for “Siri and Search” menu
  • Select “Listen for” and choose your desired option: “Siri or Hey Siri,” “Siri,” or off

To eliminate the "Hey" from "Hey Siri" on your iPhone, just tap on "Siri" or "Hey Siri." This change won't prevent you from using "Hey Siri" if you still want to employ it.
