iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 redesigned the Siri screen completely. Instead of occupying the full screen, the Apple voice assistant appears as a small circle at the bottom of the screen. Siri results are displayed like a notification on iPhone and card on iPad. However, if you loved the full-screen Siri interface, here is how to have that back.
How to Enable Full-Screen Siri in iOS 14
- Open the Settings app.
- Tap on Accessibility.
- Tap on Siri.
- Disable Show Apps Behind Siri.
Now, press the Right side button or use Hey Siri. You will see that the assistant takes the full screen and blurs the background.
How to Disable Full-Screen Siri in iOS 14
After you download and install iOS 14, by default, Siri takes over the compact look. However, if you followed the above steps and changed it to full-screen mode, you can revert it back by enabling Show Apps Behind Siri in step #4.
iOS 14 has brought significant visual changes. Apart from a redesigned Siri, the call notification when the iPhone is unlocked has also been made compact. Now, instead of taking the full screen, it only shows as a banner on top of the screen.
Similarly, with the introduction of the new App Library, all your apps are organized in categories. This gives you the ability to have an iPhone Home Screen with zero apps! Yes! Zero! Just like Android phones.
Widgets have also seen a big change. You can now choose three sizes – Small, Medium, Large, and have them on the Home Screen.
