Turn off Voice Control on your iPhone

Learn how to adjust the Home button settings for Voice Control and Siri on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

     

With iOS 10.2 or later, you can prevent Voice Control or Siri from responding when you press and hold the Home button on your device. Follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Home Button.
  2. Under Press and Hold to Speak, select one of these options:
    • Siri: Siri will respond when you press and hold the Home button.
    • Voice Control: Classic Voice Control will respond when you press and hold the Home button. This will also turn off Siri.
    • Off: There will be no response when you press and hold the Home button.

The press and hold setting applies only to the Home button. If you're using a headset, and it unexpectedly activates Siri or Voice Control, make sure that your headset is fully inserted into the device.

If you have a loose or poor headset connection, frayed cables, or moisture on the connector or remote, it might unexpectedly activate Siri or Voice Control. If the issue persists, try using a different headset.
