How to Turn Off Iphone Voice Dialing

By Techwalla Contributor

The Apple iPhone offers a Voice Control feature that is turned on by default. Use it to call one of your contacts or to speak a number to dial. Voice Control is activated by pressing and holding the "Home" button below the display until the Voice Control screen appears. Voice Control can be disabled only while the iPhone is in the locked mode to prevent voice dialing from a locked phone.
