How to Enable Handsfree “Hey Siri” Mode on Any iPhone in iOS 9

Apple has launched its two flagship models, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus with bunch of new exciting features. One of such features is untethered “Hey Siri” option. That means you will no longer need to long press Home button on iPhone 6s/6s Plus. Instead, just speak out “Hey Siri”.

In any other iPhone apart from 6s series, this feature is available only when you have your iPhone in charging. There isn’t any practical logic behind giving this feature only in charging mode. It seems Apple wants to make their users addicted to this new feature and compel them to upgrade to its flagship series.

Before you rush to install this tweak, make sure you have enabled Hey Siri option from Settings → General → Siri. After enabling, complete the Siri set-up process, and after that, install the tweak and restart your device. Now watch out before you speak, as Siri will always listen to what you speak.
