Kaan’s video has gone viral, being viewed 22.5 million times and earning 1.5 million likes.

‘Now every time I plug my phone in it says “pigeon meatball stir fry” and I get terrified every time,’ wrote another.

Necessary: Voice Control must be enabled for the trick to work

How to: Users must navigate to Settings, Accessibility, and then Voice Control

How to: In July, he shared a trick for unlocking a phone without using Face ID or entering a passcode – relying on voice control instead 

Last year, as many iPhone users struggled with Face ID because of face masks, Kaan showed how to unlock an iPhone without it — or even a passcode.

‘I’m gonna show you how to unlock your phone with your voice,’ he says in the viral video, which he uploaded on June 27, 2020.

First, he instructed viewers to go to Settings and select Accessibility, which is in the third block of options below General, Control Center, and Display & Brightness. 

Then select Voice Control (under the ‘Physical and Motor’ subsection).

For the trick to work, Voice Control — the first option at the top of the screen — needs to be enabled. This allows users to use their voice to control their iOS device, without even saying ‘Hey Siri.’

Step by step: After selecting Customize Commands, they name the verbal command,

The TikTok user named his 'open sesame'

They then record an action — in this case, typing in a PIN code on the keypad

When users than say their voice command , the action plays out on screen

The reward: They then record an action — in this case, typing in a PIN code on the keypad. When users than say their voice command , the action plays out on screen

Once that has been enabled, click on Customize Commands to create a new voice command. 

‘From here, click Create New Command and type in whatever phrase you want to use to unlock your phone,’ @kaansanity saod, using ‘open sesame’ as his own example.

‘Then click “Run Custom Gesture” and type in the place your passcode would be,’ he added.

For example, if your PIN code for your iPhone is 1234, tap on the screen where the 1, 2, 3, and 4 keys would be, in succession.

This means that when you give the voice command of your choice — whether it be ‘open sesame’ like @kaansanity’ or even ‘lemme see my phone’ — your iPhone will behave as if you are tapping out your PIN number and unlock your phone.
