How to Hide Siri Suggestions on Your iPhone

Keep your iPhone experience simple.

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. And this feature has remained with each iOS update since then. Since this feature only served to distract me, I wanted to disable it.

This short guide will tell you how to hide Siri suggestions quickly and easily. If you'd rather be rid of Siri entirely, then we've got a guide to make that happen as well! We also have guides to help you if you are in the market to hide your iPhone photos or hide your home screen apps.

Don't worry...I didn't forget to message mom. I set up a reminder in Slack instead!

Sometimes, when you are busy or out and about and your iPhone starts ringing, you don't want to pick it up, but you know it might be so-and-so with that important call you've been waiting on.
