Many a time, I inadvertently activate Siri on my iPhone X by pressing and holding the side button. Hence, I prefer using only voice to invoke the personal assistant. Apart from fixing this little mess, the trick also allows me to slightly lessen the burden of the button. If you are also in the same boat as mine, stop the side button from accidentally activating Siri on your iPhone X.
At any time you may want to return to the default option, you will be able to do it without any hassle. Jump over to this hands-on guide to find how it works:
How to Prevent iPhone X Side Button from Accidentally Invoking Siri
Step #1. Launch Settings app on your iPhone → Now, tap on General.
Step #2. Next, tap on Accessibility.
Step #3. Next up, scroll down and tap on Side Button.
Step #4. Under Press and Hold to Speak, select Off.
Henceforth, the personal assistant won’t be triggered whenever you press and hold the side button on your iPhone.
If you ever want it back, follow the same steps and select Siri in the end.
