iPhone Dictation Mixes Voice And Touch Input In iOS 16
The iPhone’s Dictation feature lets you enter text just by speaking. The newest iOS version will make the task even simpler for you by combining voice and text input. It allows you to enter the text with your voice, then manually type in a word you know the iPhone won’t understand, and then finish the sentence with your voice.

Furthermore, there’s another AI-powered feature coming, which will handle the punctuation part for you. You will no longer need to enter punctation in your text with the latest Dictation upgrade built into the iOS 16. Additionally, the voice-recognition will let you add emoji dictation as well. For instance, you can say “mind blown emoji” and have that emoji inserted into your text message.
