How to Turn off Type to Siri on iPhone, iPad (iOS 17.4.1)

Type to Siri is a great alternative rather than hey Siri. If you don't like it then learn here how to Turn off Type to Siri on iPhone, iPad.

The Type to Siri is an excellent feature in updated iOS. 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 wasting time.

Following the given idea will let you deactivate the new Siri feature.
