After more than half a decade later Apple finally brought its virtual assistant Siri to the Mac. Right after installing macOS Sierra on their machines macOS users saw the Siri icon in the dock as well as in the menu bar. By putting its icons everywhere Apple sure is trying to persuade users to try this new feature. While many users are finding Siri for Mac to be useful, others don’t seem to be impressed and won’t be using it. If you are part of that second group of people and want to get rid of Siri and its icons from your Mac, then we have got you covered. Follow the steps below in order to turn off Siri on macOS. Turning off Siri is a fairly simple process and you will be done in a few clicks.
