    I don't remember having to enable a setting to get that feature. Mine has already been enabled. What iOS are you on?

    What iOS version are you running on your iPhone?

    Only iPhones 4s and up have the dictation mic. I think. If you have a 4s, 5, 5c, or 5s and there's no mic on the keyboard, try turning on Siri in settings.

    +1 for what Ledsteplin said. You need Siri turned on in order to have the mic there. I have had it both on and off and with it on it's there and not there when off. To turn Siri on: Go to Settings > General > Siri. Then turn the slider to on and adjust settings accordingly.

    What worked for me was going to keyboard and enable dictation.

    This same thing happened to me where I lost the microphone image. Go to settings > general > keyboard > and then go all the way to the bottom and turn on " enable dictation" there you go!
