Hollis Johnson. One of the best features on the iPhone X is that its lock screen hides the content of notifications until you're looking at it. You can see that you, say, received a WhatsApp message, but nobody will be able to read the actual message until it scans your face and understands that you're the owner of the phone. As iDownloadBlog discovered on Wednesday, Siri can actually read most hidden messages from your lockscreen — even when they're hidden and your phone is locked.
The bug does not affect text messages or iMessages received in the Messages app. Your browser does not support the video tag. Of course, whether to be worried that someone is going to physically take your iPhone and ask Siri to read your WhatsApp messages depends on your personal situation — for most people, this shouldn't be a problem, and Apple will eventually patch it.
For example, if you really want to keep your WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger notifications private, you can turn those off individually, while keeping notifications for less sensitive notifications, like a weather forecast. You can also disable Siri when the device is locked, but this can make it harder to ask Siri for handy stuff like directions.

My wife's Macan S only makes an alert sound when text messages arrive but will not display them while driving. Even in vehicles with Carplay Iphones only allow reading of messages. Apple has not ever allowed messages to be displayed on screen.
It's a bad idea to look at screen for reading text messages. As I have said in many other posts.
Tesla prodies themselves on Safety and is not going to add a feature to the car that makes it less safe and potentially breaks laws. Talking on the phone is also dangerous. Reading a text from the screen isn't what I want, I want text to voice and voice to text, a feature that is available in many other cars. It's the feature that I had on my previous car that I miss the most. And that was without Apple car play, so that is not needed to make it work.
As long as your phone can hear you, you can say "Hey Siri, read my text message" and you will hear it over the car system same as a phone call. Works even if your car audio system is off, or set to an audio source other than phone. Just like a phone call, it comes through anyway.
Effopec You aren't the OP. For hey siri to work the phone needs to be unlocked, so that requires pulling it from my pocket or the phone dock, pointing it at my face and swiping up.
A bit more effort than I want while driving. The system on my Ford worked well.
I just needed to press the voice button and say "read my text messages", then I could press it again and say "text XXX". I believe the car just activated Siri when you did this, but it avoided having to pull the phone out and unlock it. It was very handy and I'm sure it was fairly simple to implement. Effopec The iPhone does not need to be unlocked to work unless you set it as such in its settings.
I have done Hey Siri from across the room, while phone is in my pocket or when it is in the phone cabinet in my Model 3. Sorry Brad, you're only half right at best on that detail.
It's true, you can in settings allow Siri to work when locked. So Siri will respond to you.
Now I have iPhone X and iOS 11 and when I ask Siri to "read the message" while I am driving, she tells me I have to unlock my iPhone From your post, I understand that you are not able to ask Siri to read your incoming text messages while you are driving; you are being prompted to unlock your iPhone. One of the coolest things of Siri can do is read your texts read out loud to you. Say you've got a bunch of unread text messages on your iPhone 4S and you don' t.
But for Siri to read back a message, it does require an unlock. Also, Siri won't respond in total darkness, block the light sensors and see for yourself. You are correct.
I have been doing tests here and the behavior has changed since I last actually used the feature. There are suggestions online in that if you turn notification previews to "Always" in settings, it should work, but I couldn't replicate it.
As for working in darkness, I have used Siri in complete darkness to get a light turned on using HomeKit. In my experience, once the phone is in my pants pocket, Siri can't be activated. When you used it in the dark for homekit, was it charging? Not sure, but I think the pants pocket maybe is making it think its like lying face down on a table. I think the sensor when facing up in a dark room iPhone X infrared sensor , the phone still will respond to commands.
Have to try it tonight when its dark.
Between work and home I text extensively. Really miss hearing and dictating back via CarPlay. Much better UI. Yes, having carplay is better, but works through "hey Siri, read messages" almost as well after you unlock it. That's what you do, right?
