Thanks, Apple, for fixing the one bug that almost made me go back to Android

    Voice Control. Need I say more? It wasn't a bug, really, but every time I bent over and had my iPhone 6+ in my pocket, that stupid Voice Control would wake up and yak at me. No, in the grand scheme of things, this wasn't a world shaking problem. But it was a real irritant. Now, with IOS 10.2, this can be TURNED OFF. I know about the Siri password workaround, but this is finally the right solution, not some hack.

    Thanks, Apple. Honestly, this was the one thing that got me so mad that I was seriously considering tossing my iPhone. First world problems and all that, sure. But it's nice to have this option now.

    There were fairly simple (although not necessarily straightforward) ways to disable it even before the option was added (assuming you didn't want to use Siri at all), but it's good that an actual option is there now.

    That said, it's odd that something would trigger it for you while in your pocket, which means that something would often be pressing on your phone and its home button in particular.

    I'm glad this "thing" got fixed and you're happy with it.

    But... how the hell do you manage to get your iPhone awake from it's sleep in your poket???
    I'm now using my iPhone 7 Plus with a sleeve, but back when I had a 6s Plus, I used to put it "naked" in my pocket and I NEVER had problems with buttons turning it on...

    That's fascinating!

    (Please don't thing I'm making fun of you.)
