Voice control

Voice Control is a voice recognition program which is the predecessor to Siri. It is activated when holding down the home button. Voice Control was first released for the iPhone 3GS in June 2009 and then the iPod Touch. A limited "iTunes Control" variant was released with the iPod Touch 3rd generation but could only be used with the remote mic, as it had no internal microphone, and wasn't introduced on the iPad for some unknown reason. If you turn Siri off on the iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 Voice Control will appear. Voice Control can only do certain commands, such as FaceTime or a playing song. For best results, Apple recommends holding the phone to your face, as you would on a call.
