How to turn off Siri

If you’re tired of accidentally triggering Siri or just find her to be more trouble than she’s worth, disabling the virtual assistant is a simple process. Here’s how to do it:

1. Open your device’s Settings app
2. Scroll down and click on “Siri & Search”
3. Toggle off “Listen for ‘Hey Siri'”

This will disable the voice activation feature, which means that Siri won’t respond when you say “Hey Siri” or hold down the home button.

4. To completely turn off Siri, toggle off “Press Side Button for Siri” if using an iPhone X or later model, or “Press Home for Siri” on earlier models.
5. A prompt will pop up asking if you want to turn off all features related to Siri – tap on “Turn Off”.

And voila! You have successfully turned off the pesky AI assistant that has been causing you trouble.

Note that turning off these features may limit certain functionalities such as hands-free activation and voice commands in apps that use this technology. However, if privacy concerns outweigh convenience in your case, then following these steps can give you peace of mind knowing that your digital assistant is no longer listening in on everything you say.

How to turn off Siri suggestions

Siri suggestions can sometimes be helpful, but they can also feel intrusive and annoying. If you’re tired of Siri suggesting things to you all the time, it’s easy to turn off this feature.

First, go to your Settings app on your iPhone or iPad. Scroll down until you find the option for Siri & Search. Tap on that option.

Next, look for the section labeled Suggestions in Search. Here, you’ll see a toggle switch labeled “Suggestions when Sharing.” Turn that switch off by tapping on it.

You’ll also want to turn off suggestions for apps and shortcuts. To do this, scroll down a bit further until you see App Suggestions and Shortcuts. You should see two more toggle switches here: one for App Suggestions and one for Shortcut Suggestions. Tap each of these switches so that they are turned off.

Once you’ve completed these steps, Siri will no longer suggest things to you when using search or sharing information with others. It’s a simple way to regain some control over your device and reduce distractions from unnecessary notifications!
