Before iOS 16, one could disable most of Siri’s audible feedback on the iPhone in Settings > Siri & Search > Voice Feedback > Hands-Free Only. See former truth here.

In iOS 16, Siri is now audibly announcing the responses and feedback to everything I request.

→ How does one achieve the above functionality again (ie. no voice feedback)?

In other words, I only want to hear from Siri for Map-route directions, for example, and not for every little thing, for which I’m happy to read the feedback on the screen. I’ve checked under:

  • Settings > Siri & Search > Listen for “Hey Siri” [already set to off]
  • Settings > Siri & Search > Siri Responses [ticking “Automatic” doesn’t fix it]
  • Settings > Siri & Search > Announce Calls [ticking “Headphones & Car” doesn’t fix it]
  • Settings > Siri & Search > Announce Notifications [turning it off: doesn’t fix it]
  • Settings > Siri & Search > Announce Notifications [“Headphones” to “on”: doesn’t fix it]
  • Settings > Accessibility > Siri > Spoken Responses [ticking “Automatic”: doesn’t fix it]
  • Settings > Accessibility > Siri > Announce Notifications on Speaker [turning it off: doesn’t fix it]

At this point, my only option seems to be to disable Siri completely (if that’s even possible). If I have to resort to this, how do I do it?
