It can be difficult to get used to Siri without the home button. Siri can be activated simply by pressing the Power (or Side) Button for a bit too long. This means that you should be very careful with how your phone is handled as Siri can be accidentally activated quite often. Siri is an excellent feature and the iOS 12 update makes it even more useful.
