    It Is Only Turned On When You Open An App Requiring A Microphone So If You Listen To A Song It Is Off Or If You Record A memo It Turns On Automatically

  • the mic is only turned on when the software requests it to be on. so on the iPhone if you are on a phone call with it, there is no way to turn the mic off except for hitting mute on the phone.
