If only there were a way to enable low power mode for humans. Low Power Mode was introduced in iOS 9 and was met with a virtual round of applause from all iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch users. Basically, Low Power Mode temporarily reduces power consumption by turning off or reducing mail fetch, background app refresh, automatic downloads, and some visual effects.
Maybe if Siri was voiced by Scarlett Johansson, like the wonderful operating system featured in the film, Her, you would never want to mute her. But given Siri’s sometimes unnecessary and repetitive prompts, there may come a time when you would want to silence her, immediately. Sorry, Siri, it is nothing personal. If you have ever set a reminder at work or even a timer, the Siri response can really travel in a quiet room. So, if you want to quickly mute Siri without completely disabling her voice feedback, keep on reading.

Siri has been a consistent cause of frustration or jubilation over last few years. When Siri works, she can be extremely helpful and downright impressive. But her limitations in understanding context and your speech patterns caused many to downplay Siri’s usefulness. Apple looked to improve both those aspects with the new Siri setup and Proactive.

We have all had it happen to us. Saying a simple phrase or command when talking to Siri and laughing at the ridiculous request that she heard. Whether you have an accent, are using complicated words, or aren’t speaking loud enough, Siri misunderstanding what you said is very common. iOS 9 wants to improve that aspect of Siri, and now provides a handy-dandy setup process for Siri. Through this process Siri will gain a better understanding of your voice and how you speak.
