How to Speed up Siri

Wish Siri was faster?

Here is a nice setting tweak to speed up Siri and make her more responsive. I found disabling the Voice Feedback (so Siri doesn’t talk out loud), makes her snappier.

Downside: You will have to read the screen.

Settings > General > Siri > Voice Feedback
Change to: Handsfree Only

From my understanding, this probably bypass the need for Apple’s servers creating the verbal dictation audio, and having to transfer it over Cellular Data / Wifi to your device. Aka, time.

Reliability boost? Maybe.

As a bonus Siri overall seems more reliable as , I get a lot fewer “I’m unable to process your request right now” responses it seems. But you will have to find out for yourself there. But with out a doubt Siri is a bit faster.
