Siri learns how you use it and offers suggestions accordingly. And if you have allowed it to access iCloud, you will get the streamlined experience across your synced devices. For instance, if you have connected your iOS and macOS devices with the same Apple ID, the personal assistant will use its learning to provide personalized suggestions on both the devices. I find it really helpful, however; due to privacy concerns, some of you might want to remove Siri’s data from iCloud on your iOS device.
Personally, I like to turn off the personal assistant (Siri) in the iCloud as I don’t want it to carry the learning from my iPhone (which is a more personal device) to Mac or Apple TV. Enough talk, let me show you how it works:
How to Disable Siri in iCloud and Delete What She Has Learnt
Step #1. Open the Settings app on your iOS device.
Step #2. Tap on Apple ID banner → iCloud → Manage Storage.
Step #3. Next, scroll down and tap on Siri.
Step #4. Finally, tap on Disable & Delete and confirm.
You have successfully wiped out Siri data from iCloud using your iOS device. Though it won’t turn off the personal assistant, the learning will be limited to this device only.
If you ever want the personal assistant to start storing its learning in the iCloud, simply return to the Settings and toggle the switch for it.
How to Enable Siri to Access iCloud on iPhone and iPad

Step #2. Now, turn on the switch next to Siri.
