How to hide Siri Suggestions

Simplicity has always been the lynchpin to the wonderful user experience in iOS. As is expected with any major OS update, iOS9 brought a new feature: Siri Suggestions. Since this feature only served to distract me, I wanted to disable it. This short guide will tell you how to do this quickly and easily.


Open Spotlight Search settings

Navigate to Settings > General > Spotlight Search


Disable Siri Suggestions

Toggle Siri Suggestions to Off.



Bask in the simplicity and do what you intended to do -- without distraction.
