Remove the microphone icon from the keyboard
If you rarely use Dictation, you can disable the microphone icon on your iPhone by turning off the feature. Disabling Dictation will cause the microphone icon to disappear, but if it doesn’t, you may have to restart your machine. This option can be found in the Apple FastType keyboard, so you can enable dictation if you’d prefer. However, you should be aware of the limitations of voice typing.
In some cases, you may want to remove the microphone button altogether. You might have accidentally touched it while typing. In that case, removing it is a practical solution. However, if you’re using the microphone feature on your iPhone or iPad, you’ll need to disable the text-to-speech feature. Otherwise, you may want to disable the dictation feature entirely. If you don’t want to disable the microphone button entirely, you may want to use a third-party application for this purpose.
Turn off “Hey Siri”
The first thing that you will need to do in order to turn off “Hey Siri” on iPhone is to access your settings. From here, you can access options related to Siri’s voice, language, and speech. You can even hide your active apps to prevent Siri from talking to you. The only problem with this feature is that it’s very easy to turn off! But before you start changing settings, here are some tips you should know.
First of all, you can turn off “Hey Siri” on your iPhone and iPad by changing the settings on your phone. Basically, you have to change the setting so that Siri doesn’t record your conversations. Secondly, you have to change the trigger phrase that Siri responds to. If you don’t want your conversation recorded, make sure that you don’t use it as often. Once you’ve changed the setting, Siri won’t listen to you anymore.
Disable Google Assistant’s microphone
If you’re not happy with how your iPhone’s microphone is being used by Google Assistant, you can disable it. To do this, go to the settings menu and select the Google Assistant app. You will then see a microphone access permission setting. Disabling this will disable the microphone from being used by the program until you grant it permission again. Be careful though, because disabling the microphone could affect the functionality of your device.
Another option is to uninstall the Assistant app. You can do this by removing the Google assistant as your default assistant app. Once you have done this, you can disable Google Assistant from popping up in the future. If you’ve been using Google Assistant and don’t want it on your phone, you can disable the microphone from its access by holding the home button for a moment, then selecting the “X” in the top-left corner.
Turn off “Dictation”
If you don’t want your iPhone to hear your voice, you can turn off its microphone. However, doing so might not be suitable for everyone. It may prevent your iPhone from functioning properly, or even cause certain applications to malfunction. For example, apps that require microphone access can’t function properly. For these reasons, you should disable Hey Siri before you turn off your microphone on your iPhone. For other purposes, you can simply disable the microphone in the Settings app.

The good news is that disabling the microphone on your iPhone is not as difficult as you may think. Unlike the Macbook, your iPhone doesn’t need a special tool to disable the microphone. Its microphone can easily be restored by plugging in the microphone cable. If you want to permanently disable the microphone on your iPhone, though, you’ll have to perform a more complicated procedure. You will need a suction cup, wedge, and heating pad to remove the microphone from the device.
