    Default How do I turn off Voice Control in iphone 7

    I have voice control - if I press too hard on the home button it activates. I don't want to use Siri either, Can anyone help please?

    To deactivate Siri: Go to Settings → Siri, and then disable the toggle next to "Siri".
    To deactivate "VoiceOver": Go to Settings → General → Accessibility → VoiceOver, and then disable the toggle next to "VoiceOver".

    Even with this done, the Voice Control comes on when pressing to unlock the phone (if it doesn't recognize the thumb right away). Do you know any way to prevent this?

    That cannot be disabled. In other words, there's no way to make nothing at all happen when you hold down the home button.

    There is no way to turn off voice control on the lock screen. You have to activate Siri to turn off voice control. Than one of the options for Siri is "Access on Lock Screen" Simply toggle that off.

    This worked for me (on an iPhone 7 Plus)
    Go to settings
    Select General
    Select Accessibility
    Select Home button
    Under 'Press and hold to speak' select Off.
    I get no voice control at all now. Hope this works for you😀
