Many privacy conscious users have configured their iPhone settings so that any incoming notifications won't be displayed on the device's lock screen. The feature is turned on by default and prevents individuals in your vicinity from taking a quick peek at potentially sensitive information. With this setting enabled, lock screen notifications will remain hidden until a user authenticates with Face ID, Touch ID or passcode.
However, a Mac Magazine reader discovered that Siri will read the content of most messages even though the content is hidden on the display.
The issue has been reported to Apple, which will hopefully fix it sharpish. In my case, Siri could not only read messages from Signal and WhatsApp but also from Gmail and other third-party app notifications.
Interestingly, the bug does not work for Apple's native messaging app, meaning your iMessages are safe.
More than 450000 smoke alarms recalled nationwide
The dual-sensor smoke alarms, model numbers PI2010 and PI9010 , have both photoelectric and ionization sensors. Kidde says around 452,000 dual smoke detectors were sold in the USA , and about 40,000 in Canada.
We've reached out to Apple and will update this story if we receive a response.
If you ask Siri to read text notifications, she'll tell you to unlock your phone. However a recent Siri bug circumvented that protection. With the existence of the bug, most of the notifications on iPhone X can be read out loud without requiring owner's permission.
Users can disable Siri when iPhone is locked. Have you had any trouble with iOS 11?
Test the bug for yourself: Go to Settings Notifications Select an app (say WhatsApp) Show Previews Select "When Unlocked".
