iOS16 and voice dictation

Apple has announced that the next version of their operating system, which will probably be released around September, will have improved voice dictation.  At the moment, they apparently process 18 billion dictation requests every month.  The new features will allow you to have the keyboard open at the same time that you are using the voice dictation, so you will be able to switch between voice and touch while getting that message out! 

I find using voice to dictate messages and quick e-mails on my phone to be very useful, but at the moment you have to switch between the two and you can’t have them both open at the same time.  The new dictation features will also add punctuation automatically to the text in future.

Apple is always on top of everything nice and new. Unfortunately it is just not in many peoples budget to always get the new Iphone. I still don't find them very user friendly but my husband LOVES Apple.

I have an Apple as well and I've never actually used this app / feature before, it sounds very useful though obviously because speaking out rather than typing is a lot faster.
