Sick of unwanted Siri Suggestions? Cool down as we demonstrate how to completely disable Siri Suggestions in iOS 12 or stop information from individual apps from showing in search and look up!

Siri keeps track of your entire activity and offers suggestions in apps, search, and look up accordingly. As a result, you can quickly access important info, get smart shortcuts to carry out oft-repeated tasks faster and more. However, some of you may find it a bit too much and hence would want to turn off specific app Siri Suggestions or completely disable Siri Suggestions in iOS 12.

Luckily, iOS offers you the desired freedom to control Siri Suggestions on your iPhone. Depending on your need, you can turn off suggestions in search, look up, and even on the Lock screen.
