Once you see the Apple logo on the screen, then let go of all buttons, and your iPhone will restart.
Solution 4: Check Internet Connection on your Phone, You should Reset If Necessary
“Hey Siri” feature does work under strong network connections. That’s why, If you are not connected to the steady Internet, Siri might say “Sorry, I’m having trouble connecting to the network” or “Try again in a little while.” In this case, you will need to check the network (LTE or 4G) connection. Next, attempt to turn on Airplane Mode first. This tip will block all the Wi-Fi settings and Cellular date. After a while, turn Airplane Mode ON to see if “Hey Siri” not working issue resolved or not.
In some of the cases, you may need to reset the phone network settings. This will not wipe or delete your data on iPhone, but it only restores all the network-related settings to factory defaults. Just Open the Settings App > Tap General > Scroll down the screen to Reset and select Reset Network Settings.
