How do I turn off live listen on my iPhone?

Answered by Willie Powers

To turn off Live Listen on your iPhone, follow these steps:

1. Go to your iPhone’s Settings app. It looks like a gray gear icon on your home screen.
2. Scroll down and tap on “Accessibility”. It’s usually located in the third group of options.
3. In the Accessibility settings, scroll down again and select “Hearing Devices”.
4. Under the “MFi Hearing Devices” section, you will see a list of connected hearing devices. Tap on the name of your hearing device.
5. Once you’ve selected your hearing device, you will see an option to “End Live Listen”. Tap on it.

By following these steps, you will successfully turn off Live Listen on your iPhone. Live Listen is a feature that allows you to use your iPhone as a remote microphone, streaming sound directly to your hearing devices. If you no longer need to use Live Listen, turning it off can help preserve battery life and prevent accidental use.

I personally find Live Listen to be a useful feature in certain situations. For example, when I’m in a noisy environment and want to focus on a specific conversation or sound, I can use Live Listen to enhance the audio directly through my hearing devices. However, there are times when I don’t need this feature, such as when I’m in a quiet setting or simply don’t want to use it.

It’s worth noting that Live Listen is only available for hearing devices that are Made for iPhone (MFi) compatible. If you don’t see the Hearing Devices option in your Accessibility settings, it’s likely that your hearing device is not compatible with Live Listen.

In summary, to turn off Live Listen on your iPhone, go to Settings > Accessibility > Hearing Devices, select your hearing device, and tap on “End Live Listen”. Remember that Live Listen can be a useful feature in certain situations, but if you no longer need it, turning it off can help conserve battery life.
