    Not sure if anyone else experiences this, but when you send a text to someone and leave the messages app open, phone unlocked, and put your phone in your pocket, the iphone thinks you're putting the phone to your ear and enables the audio text feature and essentially sends a butt dial clip for the recipient to hear.

    It is driving me nuts and I have left some embarrassing audio clips to someone already and I am just waiting for the day where I'll send something extremely embarrassing to someone (I talk out loud when I'm alone all the time).

    What I don't understand is why they would have an option to disable "raise to speak" with Siri, but not have an option to disable it with sending audio texts.

    This is obviously user error. Why would you put your phone in your pocket unlocked? That function exists exactlt to prevent that sort of problem.

    its not a user error, I have never locked my phone before putting it in my pocket....whats the purpose of locking it? The lock as designed as a security feature....

    this has happened to me alot in the last few days....there needs to be a fix

    To prevent random controls from being "tapped" while in your pocket.

    It's meant to be put in standby mode via the lock button when you aren't using it.

    Even if I were to get in the habit of either clicking the home button, or locking before pocketing it, I still think it needs to be fixed. Siri doesn't activate when I put it in my pocket unlocked so the audio text feature activating in pockets has to be a bug

    What about putting it in your pocket unlocked and as you are putting it in or moving your body after putting it in it opens the phone app and dials someone. A couple of more steps but happens to people too. That's a big reason why locking the screen is there essentially.

    As for Siri, I wonder if it would activate similarly if the raise to use option is enabled for it.

    But that's the thing, I've NEVER had any problem with it since being in a pocket doesn't have the "skin" sense. Never butt dialed anyone, never had anything activate in my pocket before until now

    Various other people certainly have. The lock is there for purposes like that. You might have been lucky not to run into that, I completely understand, but it doesn't mean that was the best/right way to do it despite it being more convenient perhaps.

    I've experienced this too as I just tried. This is a Beta 1 bug that we can expect to be patched up by the general release. I'm sure this is nothing to be completely worried about going forward.

    So how does the Siri raise to speak feature work in relation to this kind of thing (given that it seems to be quite similar)?

    Quick audio recordings in messages....

    Ok I've sent like 15 audio recordings by accident since updating to iOS 8. Anyone else? Is there anyway to disable this thing? I'm constantly sending them by accident!

    It haven't happened to me yet since updating to iOS 8. It also doesn't auto send when you click n hold the record icon, it then requires the user to send after recording

    Lock (as in turn off) the screen when you are done?

    Sorry for asking a tangential question, but what happens if you send an audio or video recording to someone on iOS 7 or earlier?

    They get nothing. I tried sending an audio recording to my friend on 7.1.1 to see what would happen, and it just showed the three dots indicating that I was typing.

    Okay, thanks for letting me know. Can see this being a possible source of confusion once iOS 8 is released to the general public. I have a few contacts who never update their devices -- it's going to be interesting trying to keep in my mind who is on 8 and who isn't!
