Many technologies are beginning to provide users with the ability to conduct some operations by merely speaking into the device. This function, as it becomes more streamlined, might be really beneficial, particularly on a mobile phone. Siri, the speech assistant on your iPhone, may aid you in performing specific tasks using your voice.
Even if Siri is disabled, your iPhone may still be able to take voice commands. Because of a different feature known as Voice Control, this is the case.
Voice Control can be set to turn on automatically when you press and hold the side button, or it can be set to turn on when you press and hold the side button.
Voice control technology has made life a lot easier, especially when it comes to our phones.
From composing emails and texts without using your hands to phoning individuals on your contact list or even asking Siri for directions while out and about, the feature may make getting things done on the fly a lot easier and more convenient.
Voice Control can be useful if you genuinely want to use it, but it might be inconvenient if it turns on by accident.

Turning Off The iPhone Voice Assistant
Because Siri and Voice Control have so many similarities, it’s easy to mistake them for one another. They are, however, distinct and can be turned off separately.
If you want to disable Siri, go to the Settings menu and select the Siri & Search option. From there, switch off the Siri settings. A pop-up window will appear at the bottom of the window, asking if you are sure you want to disable the feature.
To disable voice control, you’ll need to execute two different tasks, as described in our previous article. Changing what happens when you push and hold the side button is the second phase of that process. While we chose the “Off” option in our instructions above, if you still have Siri activated and want to use the side button to launch her, you can choose the Siri option.
Another location where you could have an unwanted voice function is on your keyboard. I’m sure I’ve accidentally tapped the microphone on the keyboard before, and it’s a little annoying. If you want to disable the microphone, go to Settings, General, Keyboards, and disable the Enable Dictation option.

Siri And Voice Control Issues
On iOS, Siri and Voice control have a lot of similarities, but they’re two different functions that shouldn’t be mistaken.
However, both of them are known to fail if you’re using a headset with a loose or weak connection due to frayed cables or moisture on the connector or remote.
You may find that the classic Voice Control activates unexpectedly — in this situation, the solution is to switch to a different model of the headset (preferably one that was built & released by Apple)
