An iOS 8 regression

Driving along, listening to a podcast. My iPhone is plugged in to top off its battery. The message alert sounds, interrupting John Siracusa’s complaint about Apple still selling 16 GB iPads and iPhones.

“Hey, Siri.”


“Read me the last text message.”

“There are no messages.”

Yes there are! You just made the new message sound! What the hell is wrong with you? You used to know how to do this!”
