1/5 The iPhone 15 Plus gets the same 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR display as its predecessor, although the peak brightness has now been bumped up to a staggering 2000 nits, which is super useful especially outdoors. However, it still sticks with the 60Hz refresh rate. Therefore, the lack of ProMotion is a bummer. (Shaurya Tomer/HT Tech)

2/5 Finally! Apple has got rid of the notch and brought the Dynamic Island, which debuted with the iPhone 14 Pro models, to the iPhone 15 Plus. It is a nifty little feature that is useful when you’re streaming music, navigating routes, ordering food, or doing all of those things simultaneously. (Shaurya Tomer/HT Tech)

3/5 The shiny glass at the back is no more, and the iPhone 15 Plus now gets a new soft, matte finish which is less of a fingerprint magnet. While the smartphone’s design is almost identical to its predecessor, it now gets slightly rounded edges which makes it far more comfortable to hold for longer periods. And yes, the iconic mute switch is still here on the iPhone 15 Plus. (Shaurya Tomer/HT Tech)

4/5 Lightning is officially dead! After years of resisting peer pressure, Apple has finally adopted USB Type-C, complying with the EU’s new regulations. But we’re not complaining. Apple has provided a nice, braided cable with the iPhone 15 Plus, although the charging speed is still limited to 20W. (Shaurya Tomer/HT Tech)

5/5 One of the main changes this year is the camera system. After a couple of generations featuring the same 12MP camera, Apple has finally brought the 48MP camera to the iPhone 15 Plus, and the difference is instantly noticeable, with well-detailed images. With the new Smart HDR 5, photos are now well-balanced with good exposure. Stay tuned for some amazing snapshots in our full review which comes out soon! (Shaurya Tomer/HT Tech)

Know to let Siri read your Safari’s web page article. (Unsplash)

Apple in September launched the new iOS 17 update in which it introduced various features for eligible iPhone users. With these changes to iOS, Siri has also been upgraded to manage certain commands. These new capabilities will enable users to have a more improved smartphone experience. One such activity Siri can perform is the ability to read out loud web page articles when given the command. So, if you are someone who does not want to read and prefers to listen to text, just like audiobooks, then know how to make Siri read out loud for you.

How to make Siri read your web page articles

Before getting into details, know that the read Siri feature will only work in iPhone's Safari and the voice assistance will respond to any other third-party app. Furthermore, make sure the website you open has a “Reader View” so the ads or images do not interrupt your listening.

Now, the below steps will enable Siri to read the eligible web pages:

- First, open the Safari app on your iPhone.

- Open any web page you want to listen to.

- Below you'll see an “Aa” button in which the “Listen to Page” option would be available.

- Now you'll have to activate Siri so it can listen to your command. Say “Siri read this” or “I want to listen to this page”.

- Siri will start reading the page out loud to you.

The media player for Safari will also appear in front of the page which will enable you to pause, rewind, or fast-forward the listening. Now, you will not have to put effort and time into reading each word when you can just listen to Siri reading the article. Furthermore, users do not have to use prefixes such as “Hey” to activate Siri, simply say the name of the voice assistant's name and it will reply to your command instantly.

iOS 17 update has more such feature that makes tasks easier for iPhone users. The new update has been in the news ever since its launch and has become one of the major upgrades for iPhone devices.
