Can you remove an app from Siri suggestions?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

Removing an app from Siri suggestions is a simple process. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
2. Scroll down and tap on “Siri & Search” (or just “Siri” on older iOS versions).
3. On the Siri & Search screen, you will see a list of apps under the heading “Siri Suggestions”. These are the apps that Siri uses to provide suggestions and shortcuts.
4. Scroll through the list and select the app that you want to remove from Siri suggestions. For example, let’s say you want to remove the “Notes” app.
5. Once you’ve selected the app, you will see an option called “Search, Suggestions & Shortcuts”. It will be in the form of a toggle switch.
6. Tap on the toggle switch to turn it off. When it’s turned off, the switch will appear white instead of green.
7. That’s it! The selected app, in this case, “Notes”, will no longer appear in Siri suggestions.

By following these steps, you can remove any app from Siri suggestions. This can be useful if you no longer want Siri to provide shortcuts or suggestions for a particular app.

It’s important to note that removing an app from Siri suggestions does not uninstall or delete the app from your device. It only disables Siri’s ability to suggest or provide shortcuts for that app.

I hope this detailed explanation helps you remove apps from Siri suggestions. If you have any further questions or need assistance with any other topic, feel free to ask!
