How to Disable Explicit Language for Siri on iPhone and iPad

Apple lets you disable explicit language for Siri on your iOS device. Head over to prevent the personal assistant from using offensive language!

Siri is a smart personal assistant that’s always ready to answer your queries or carry out various tasks like sending an email or translating a language quickly. The personal assistant uses language or words as per context to ensure you enjoy communicating with it. However, if you don’t want it to use offensive words, you can block explicit language from Siri on your iOS device.

Thanks to Restrictions, which is also known as “Parental Controls,” it’s possible to block explicit language for Siri. Once restricted, the personal assistant won’t use certain words or terms, which are considered to be inappropriate.
