Bad Siri

Is anyone else with an iPhone who reads this little ol’ blog seeing Siri do this this?


Siri has been draining my battery like my color after hearing the election results. Which weirdly enough is right around the time it started doing it. And it always says “Siri (Audio)” when this happens.

Some Googling has resulted in suggestions, but no one seems to have found a definite cause/correction.

The first was disable “Siri Suggestions”, but I’ve had it off since upgrading months ago:

Yes, I have Siri on, but if I don’t, I can’t voice to text:

Even though Dictation has it’s own option:

Another suggestion was to switch Siri Feedback from “Always On” to one of the other options. But mine has been like this since the upgrade months ago as well:

Both a regular reboot and a hard reboot don’t make a difference either.

The other options are to nuke the phone and reload it, but before I do that, I wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing this.

Until next time...

  1. Mine is only 1% in the past 24 hours. I’ve used her to call people. I don’t remember making any changes to her function, I did a clean install of 9, but upgraded to 10. Haven’t bothered to clean install 10 yet.

    1. I’ve only noticed it in the last week or two, which is weird, because I didn’t change anything as far as settings go. I’ve shut Siri off for now, until I can do a clean install I suppose.

      1. I do see that I have “hey Siri” turned off. But I can’t test this function drain against the battery since I have an old 5S
