New iOS releases always bring additional features and enhance existing ones. So the voice assistant Siri is constantly being improved, receiving new features at its disposal. For example, in iOS 15, the assistant learned to voice notifications about incoming notifications directly to the headphones. Previously, this feature only concerned messages. What’s interesting about this feature is that it works not only with the branded AirPods headset.

This feature works not only with standard Apple apps, but also with third-party apps. The user himself has the opportunity to choose which of the programs can receive the right to voice their notifications, and which do not need it. The voice assistant not only passively reads information, but also for a few seconds after that is in a state of waiting for a command. This behavior of Siri is very convenient – you do not need to call it again and ask to respond to the event.
The function works with any wireless headphones (not just AirPods).
