I want to disable voice control from the home button, how can I do this?

I am getting fed up with my phone calling random contacts.

    If you mean Siri - go to Settings>General>Siri>Off


    If you mean VoiceOver ....remember that a double-tap acts like a single tap and you need to use three fingers to scroll when VoiceOver is on:


    Press Home.

    Tap Settings. Then double-tap Settings.

    Tap General. Then double-tap General.

    Use three fingers on the screen to scroll to Accessibility.

    Tap Accessibility. Then double-tap Accessibility.

    Tap VoiceOver. Then double-tap VoiceOver.

    Tap "On" next to VoiceOver. Then double-tap "On" to turn it off.

    Hi thanks for the reply but I have siri turned off and voiceover off, if I press and hold the home button the phone goes into voice control.

    this is what I need to stop.

    any help is greatly appreciated

    I apologize. You did say Voice Control but so many people say one thing and mean something else. And you are in the iPad forum, not the iPhone forum.


    For a very quick Google search, I don't know if you can turn it off. Look at sberman's response here.

    thanks for your help, I am new on here and didn't realise I was in the wrong forum,

    It looks as though it cannot be turned off.

    I'll keep looking for a way though

    thanks again

    You are welcome to post anywhere but more likely to get more refined help in the iPhone forum. Ask about it in here and good luck!
