How to Turn Off Siri Suggestions on iPhone or iPad

YouTube player


Siri Suggestions is a feature that takes how you interact with everything on your Apple iPhone or iPad, and uses that information to give you customized suggestions for apps, contacts, maps and more when you search your device or use the Look Up feature. To do this, Apple collects some anonymous information about how you use your device. If you don’t like the idea of Apple collecting your data, or you just don’t like the Siri Suggestions feature, you can easily disable Siri Suggestions, either in a specific place or entirely. Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in both the YouTube video above and the image collection located beneath the steps.
