How to turn off Siri Suggestions?

Since its introduction in 2011, Siri has come a long way in terms of capability. But in some cases, it isn’t as robust as the competition. Nevertheless, the integration of this virtual assistant with Apple’s ecosystem certainly has its perks, visible in the form of Siri Suggestions.

For context, this feature allows Siri to extract data from your interactions with applications to recommend content (articles or websites) and actions which it believes you want to consume or perform, respectively. App suggestions are also catered to users according to the time of day.

According to Apple, analysis to understand usage patterns is performed locally.

While useful for some, the ever-present nature of Siri Suggestions does litter the simplistic operating system with actions that may not always be relevant. Hence, if you deem this feature unnecessary or prefer a cleaner experience across iOS and iPadOS follow the steps below to disable Siri Suggestions.
