How do I make Siri read notifications louder?

Answered by Willian Lymon

To make Siri read notifications louder on your iPhone, you can adjust the volume settings while Siri is waiting for you to speak. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

1. Activate Siri: Press and hold the Home button (on older iPhones) or the Side button (on newer iPhones) until Siri is activated. Alternatively, you can use the “Hey Siri” voice command if you have it enabled.

2. Wait for Siri: Once Siri is activated, you will see the Siri interface on your screen, and Siri will wait for you to give a command or ask a question.

3. Increase the volume: While Siri is waiting, you can use the volume buttons on the side of your iPhone to increase the volume. The volume buttons are typically located on the left side of the device, above the mute switch.

4. Test the volume: After adjusting the volume, you can ask Siri to read a notification by saying something like, “Hey Siri, read my latest notification.” Siri will then read out the notification using the adjusted volume level.

5. Fine-tune the volume: If the volume is still not loud enough, you can continue pressing the volume up button to increase it further. You can repeat this step until you find a comfortable volume level for Siri’s notifications.

It’s worth mentioning that Siri’s volume is independent of your device’s ringer volume. So even if your ringer volume is low or muted, Siri’s volume can still be adjusted separately.

Additionally, if you’re using AirPods or other Bluetooth headphones, Siri will read notifications through them instead of the iPhone’s speaker. In this case, you can adjust the volume directly on your AirPods or headphone controls.

By following these steps, you should be able to make Siri read notifications louder on your iPhone. Remember to adjust the volume while Siri is waiting for your command, and test the volume by asking Siri to read a notification.
