Can you turn off the "Hey Siri" capability?

I have not yet downloaded the new operating system, but have heard about Siri's new ability to respond when you simply say "Hey Siri?". Is it possible to turn this feature off? As in, can I program the phone to always need me to hold the button to talk to Siri?

  • It only works when it's charging. Simply go to General > Siri > Hey Siri and then you can turn it off.
