I have an iPhone SE with iOS 12.1.4. which I use primarily as a mp3 player. I am using the apple earpods (wired in ear headphones with remote).
I can pause the audio no problem by a single short tap on the remote button on the earpod.
The issue is when I single short press again, to take the SE out of pause mode and into play mode, the SE goes into Voice Control Mode instead instead of play mode.
I can put it in and out of pause mode every time if I unpause soon enough. However if I leave it in pause mode for a while, it will go into voice control mode when I try to unpause it.
If it comes up in voice control mode I can get it out of that state by repeatedly pressing the Home button or if that doesn't work, a restart will fix it.
I don't know if it matters, but my SE has a sim card installed however I use the SE in airplane mode with wifi and bluetooth only enabled (no cell network)
- updated to the latest o.s.
- bought new headphones
- tried new podcast player app.
set SE to factory restore
I have replaced the headphone jack. It did not fix the problem.
Is their a way to disable voice control entirely?
