You feel devastated if your PA (Personal Assistant) doesn't show up.
The same goes for Siri. If it doesn't work out right, most people might not be able to complete their tasks on time in this work from home age.
If this isn't you, I know that I definitely can’t work when Siri is not talking back on my iPhone 13. That is because it saves me a lot of time by working on my voice command.
So what happened was, when I was working last week, I asked Siri to turn off my phone’s dark mode. And she didn’t respond!
I asked again but nothing. I couldn’t even see her written response until after I juggled with Siri settings. But, it still didn’t speak up.
It got me worried because Siri not talking back on iPhone 13 is not a good thing for me as an online creator. I perform all my work on my mobile - so that was a real issue for me.
Anyhow, I gathered myself up and did some research on Google. And discovered that something was off with my settings - which I then set up right and Siri began working like before.
So, if you are also going through a similar situation, my research might help you out.
I have mentioned some potential reasons for Siri not talking back on your iPhone and their solutions below. Have a good read!
Siri Not Talking Back On iPhone 13 - Find Out Why?
In my research, I found many reasons that cause Siri to stop responding. I have mentioned those reasons along with solutions below that you can check and understand what it is that makes Siri to not talk back in iPhone 13.
‘Hey Siri’ Might Be Off
‘Hey Siri’ is one of the most popular features on the iPhone. It's a great way to access your phone and get quick answers when you need them.

The next possibility can be that the ‘Siri Responses’ in your settings might be disabled. To turn them on, you need to follow these steps:
Settings > Siri & Search > Siri Responses > Prefer Spoken Responses
Making these changes will enable Siri to always reply to you even when the ring switch is turned off.
Siri Volume Might Be Down
Apart from iPhone’s volume settings, Siri also has volume settings that you can adjust while you speak to Siri.

You need to clean the microphone or get it checked by a repairman to make Siri talk back on your iPhone 13.
