How To Disable Siri Suggestions For Search, Look Up, Lock Screen And Particular Apps

Over the past few years Siri Suggestions have become smarter and surprisingly useful. Siri can suggest to play a song that it thinks you might want to listen, send a message to friend you regularly talk to, view an album and much more. The reach of Siri Suggestions is no longer limited to stock apps either as it can also suggest actions for third-party apps as well.

Despite the improvements Siri Suggestions can still be annoying at times, recommending actions that you don’t want to perform again. It can also be useless and even result in embarrassing situations for those who share an iOS device with other people.

Thankfully you can completely disable the Siri Suggestions feature on your iOS device and prevent the suggestions from appearing in different iOS screens including the Spotlight Search, Look Up and the Lock Screen. You can also disable Siri Suggestions for a particular app without disabling the feature as a whole.
