Siri can now restart your iPhone

  • December 25, 2022

You can finally use your voice to restart your iPhone.⁠

Anytime you notice a software issue with your iPhone, like applications automatically force-closing, a laggy operating system, or unresponsive features, you reboot your device to fix these bugs hopefully. Until now, you could only restart your device manually.⁠

As long as you have the “Hey Siri” feature enabled, which constantly listens for the two-word command, you can activate this feature. Start by saying “Hey Siri” to activate Siri, next, say “Restart iPhone,” and lastly, say “Yes” when Siri prompts you to confirm.
