Apple is a company that prides itself on creating a ton of accessibility features for its customers who might not have otherwise been able to use their products. One of the new accessibility features that Apple introduced to its iOS 13 update comes in the form of a new and more robot Voice Control.

As its name implies, this will allow iOS users to use their voice to control various aspects of their devices, but it is more than that. While Siri already allows users to launch apps and send messages and set reminders, Voice Control on iOS 13 will be able to do more than that.

While it was created as an accessibility feature, it is still pretty cool and useful enough where if you’re so inclined, you can take it for a spin yourself, and here’s how you can turn it on.
