How To: iPhone Remove Enable Dictation Prompt Keyboard Typing

How To: iPhone Remove Enable Dictation Prompt Keyboard Typing
If you are typing on your iPhone keyboard, you may randomly get prompted with the Enable Dictation prompt to enable, learn more, or not now. This prompt actually gets generated when you mistakenly hit the microphone key as pictured below.


iPhone Keyboard Microphone Icon

There seems to be a bug in the latest iOS even if you disable Dictation in…

Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> Enable Diction

 

...the Microphone button still appears in your keyboard. The solution is to enable dictation and then disable dictation to force the button to disappear and remove the annoying prompt when you are typing – such as text messages.

 

Enjoy!

THANK YOU!! I had Dictation disabled but the microphone was still there, so all the articles saying to disable it were no help!
Butttt... the old "turn Dictation on then off again" literally fixed it!! ??

This is such a relief, that popup has been so annoying ????‍♀️

I have a new Iphone 13 pro which seems to be permanently set on dictation. I did all of things listed above to no good end. Any other suggestions? The blue microphone will not go away!!

This doesn’t shut off the annoying “turn on dictation” notification when I ALWAYS knock this stupid key while typing. How do you REMOVE it?

Thank you. Your clear directions worked. I no longer see the pesky microphone icon. What a relief not to have that annoying pop up.
