Remove Microphone Button From iPhone Keyboard
Although, the Microphone button is prominently visible on iPhone keyboard, most users simply ignore this button, not really knowing what to do with it.
However, some users end up accidentally tapping on the Microphone button and are surprised to see “Enable Dictation” pop-up appearing on the screen of their iPhone.
After this, some users who are not likely to use the Dictation feature on iPhone may want to remove or get rid of the Microphone button.
Removing the Microphone button from iPhone keyboard only disables the dictation feature and has no impact on the Microphone in Messages App.
You will be able to send Voice Messages using the iOS Messaging App on your iPhone, even with the Microphone icon removed from iPhone Keyboard.
