Siri, Apple's voice assistant, is not for everyone. If you don't find Siri useful, or if you accidentally keep calling Siri with the side button or the "Hey Siri" phrase, here's how to turn Siri off for your iPhone or iPad.
Disable Siri on iPhone and iPad
Disabling Siri can be accomplished in a handful of steps. First open the "Settings" app on your iPhone or iPad, then select the "Siri & Search" option.
Tap the switch next to the following options to turn each item off:
- Listen to "Hey Siri"
- Press side button for Siri
- Siri allow when locked (if you just want to disable Siri on the lock screen)
When you disable the first two options, you will see a popup asking if you really want to disable Siri. Tap the "Turn Off Siri" button here.
Siri is now disabled on your iPhone and iPad.
Disable Siri Suggestions on iPhone and iPad
Although Siri started out as a voice assistant for the iPhone and iPad, its role has expanded considerably in recent years. Siri is now used as a generic term for all smart suggestion features.
From app suggestions looking for smart notifications on the lock screen (which can be quite annoying), everything is handled behind the scenes by Siri. Don't worry, you can also disable it and directly from the Siri & Search section in the Settings app.
Once in the menu, swipe down until you see the "Siri Suggestions" section, then tap the toggle buttons next to the "Suggestions on Search", "Suggestions on Lookup" and "Lock Screen Suggestions" options to each disable item.
Now that you & # 39; If you have disabled Siri on your iPhone or iPad, the next step is to delete your Siri history.
