Newer iOS versions, however, support using Voice Control even when the device is locked, allowing you to enter your passcode simply by speaking into the device. In this tutorial, you will learn how to unlock your iPhone 14 Pro/Max using your voice only with the help of you the Voice Control feature.

Step 3. Under the Physical and Motor section, tap on “Voice Control” to continue.
Step 4. Now, simply turn on “Voice Control” by tapping on the switch in front of it and pressing the Side button to lock your iPhone.
Step 5. Alternatively, you can also enable Voice Control by asking Siri without going to Settings. To do that, simply tell Siri, “Hey Siri, enable Voice Control,” and the feature will be immediately enabled. When your phone is already locked, this is helpful.
Step 6. Now that Voice Control is activated and your iPhone is locked, you can simply say “Go Home” followed by your passcode to unlock your iPhone 14 Pro/Max.
Step 7. To enter your passcode, you can say, for example, “Tap (followed by the letter or number in your passcode)“. You can say, “Hit 3” to hit the 3 key on the keypad. Repeat this for all of the digits or letters in your passcode, and your iOS device will unlock.
