If you want to always see what Apple’s virtual assistant Siri says written on your screen, even if your iPhone or iPad is not in silent mode, there is a way to enable Siri subtitles. Here’s how to turn it on.
First, open Settings on your iPhone or iPad.
In Settings, tap “Siri & Search.”
In Siri & Search, scroll down and tap “Siri Answers.”
In Siri Answers, set the switch next to “Always show Siri captions” to the “on” position.
(By the way, if you’re having trouble seeing the switch colors, you can also turn on the switch labels in Settings.)
After that, close the settings. Call Siri and ask her a question. If your phone is not muted, Siri will speak the response and you will see the same response written on the screen as a title.
Use it as much as you like. If you ever want to turn off captions, go back to Settings> Siri & Search> Siri Answers and turn off “Always show Siri captions.” Note that you will still see Siri responses as closed captions if your device is set to silent mode and you have “Spoken responses” in Settings> Siri & Search> Siri responses set to “When silent mode is off”.
