Apple has actually long given a microphone switch in the key-board to conjure up dictation on the apple iphone and also iPad. However, it had not been constantly very easy to strike, and also you needed to change back to the key-board to repair the unpreventable errors. (Apple’s dictation is a big shortcut however much from best, specifically with homonyms and also appropriate nouns.) With iphone 16 and also iPadOS 16, Apple made the microphone switch bigger and also rearranged it to make it much easier to touch. Much more significantly, the key-board stays offered while dictation is energetic, allowing you to collaborate with message by hand throughout dictation. You can repair errors, rearrange the insertion factor, choose and also remove message, and more. As an example, if dictation inserts the incorrect word, double-tap words to choose it and also talk the substitute. Or, if you intend to include something, faucet in the message to relocate the insertion factor and also begin talking once more. Dictation can also include spelling for you, however it’s a little haphazard at that, so you may intend to disable that alternative in Setups > > General > > Key-board.
