How to get rid of the ‘Finish Setting Up Your iPhone’ prompt

Got a new iPhone or updated your iPhone to the latest iOS version? If you skip setting up Siri, Apple Pay, or other features, you might be getting a pesky “Finish Setting Up Your iPhone” prompt in the Settings app. The most frustrating part is that the message is not temporary. It stays until you set up the services iOS wants you to!

Getting rid of this prompt could be a hustle sometimes as the requested services might not be available in your country. However, there’s a quick workaround to get rid of the “Finish Setting Up Your iPhone” message for once and all. Let’s dig in!

How to remove the ‘Finish Setting Up Your iPhone’ prompt

  1. Open iPhone Settings.
  2. Tap the Finish Setting Up Your iPhone prompt.
  3. Now, you will get the services that you skipped during the initial setup.
    In my case, I am being prompted to Set Up Siri.
  4. Tap the Set Up prompt being displayed on your iPhone.
  5. You will see two options: Continue or Set Up Later in Settings (or Wallet), depending on your chosen service.
  6. Tap Set Up Later, and repeat the process for other services.

But what to do if you don’t see the Set Up Later option on your iPhone? Well, follow the steps mentioned below to fix this issue.

What if the “Set Up Later” option is not available on your iPhone
