iOS 16.1.2/14: How to Turn off Type to Siri on iPhone, iPad

Last Updated on Jan 7, 2022

The Type to Siri is an excellent feature in updated iOS 11. But it could be a problem that there is not any shortcut on the on-screen Siri keyboard to switch between type to Siri from voice to Siri and vice-versa. Therefore, whenever you don’t like to use text to Siri instead of talking at that moment, it will force you to turn off type to Siri on your iPhone/ iPad. And it is a little bit complicated to disable cause it appears in Accessibility instead of Siri & Search setting preferences. By the way, today, I will explain how you can turn type to Siri off hassle-free and without waste of time.

Follow underneath given idea will let you deactivate the new Siri feature.
