#8. Avoid Using Siri in Areas with a lot of Background Noise

Siri's goal is to listen to your command or question, interpret what you're saying or asking, and then respond accordingly. However, if there's a lot of background noise when you activate Siri, your voice will be harder to hear and understand. In this case, hold the iPhone closer to your mouth, or use a Bluetooth headset with noise-cancelling technology built in.

If you're in a noisy environment, it's beneficial to activate Siri by pressing the Home button, speaking your question or command, and then tapping the microphone icon to deactivate it and process your request. This will help reduce the unnecessary noise that Siri picks up.
