    Is there a way to extend the time duration when dictating a message using Siri? Often times she will stop In mid message and I have not completed it yet.

    Excellent question. A hack may be possible.

    I found out the answer to my question. When you tap on the microphone and Siri starts, tap again and hold then start speaking into the microphone as long as you want as long as you keep holding the microphone (Do not let go of the microphone until you are done speaking) Siri will accept your message. I tried a 60 sec long speech and it worked flawlessly.
