Does Airpods Siri need the internet to work, or will it work with the phone alone??

Is there a kind of 'mini-Siri' that allows the new Airpods to talk to the phone alone, or will Siri only work when there is an internet connection (i.e. like 'normal' Siri)?. I often go underground, or am in large buildings without an internet connection, so Siri doen't work. It'd be nice if I could still use the Airpods handsfree in these circumstances

  • Yes, it does need the internet to function. The Hey Siri function just activates Siri on your phone as normal, and does not have Siri built into the AirPods directly.

  • Unfortunately not. You will need an internet connection for Siri to work.
