Re: Why has my dictation gotten worse with every upgrade on my iPhone 6 Plus

Welcome to iMore! I'm not sure. This hasn't been my experience. Dictation had always been considerably good as long as I'm not using my car's Bluetooth.

Great question. I think Apple doesn't care much about it, that one. Then why everything even if it doesn't really work, I wanted

I'm dictating this response right now and not having an issue. It's not all that bad IMO.

When you set up a new OS, do you use a back up? Either iTunes or iCloud? If so, next time restore or set up as new. Not from a back up. The back up may be corrupted. It's a PITA to do, but worth it.

I noticed I've been having more issues lately as well, but could just be me (and the OP of course!). I try to enunciate clearly but could be some words are tough to tell. Like Rob said, the issues tend to be in the car, and I'm wondering if ambient road noise is the culprit.

I think it's a combination or ambient noise and the car's Bluetooth mic not being as good as the iPhone's mic.
