It can be useful to use Spotlight Search from the home screen on your iPhone and iPad. By default, the search screen can show some app suggestions powered by Siri. Here’s how to turn those suggestions off.
If you want to get rid of those suggestions, all you have to do is flip a switch. To get started, open “Settings” on your iPhone or iPad by tapping the gear icon.
In Settings, tap Siri & Search.
In Siri and search options, tap the switch next to “Home screen suggestions” to turn it off.
After that, exit Settings and summon Spotlight search on your home screen by swiping down on the center of the screen with one finger. You see the search screen with no Siri suggestions anywhere in sight.
Nice and clean! No more accidentally texting mom while looking for an app.
