Turn Off Siri Suggestion On Lock Screen In iPhone

With iOS 12, Siri began offering suggestions for Shortcuts and more via the lock screen. You can disable these suggestions for individual apps or disable all Siri suggestions completely to clean up your lock screen.

Siri Suggestions is a little-known feature that lets Siri watch for tasks you carry out regularly and then offer up a shortcut to those tasks at the best time. Siri Suggestions will show up contextually on the Lock screen. It can be something as simple as ordering a latte from Starbucks in the morning, or calling someone back when you’ve missed a call. Siri will also suggest that you turn a common or routine task into an automated action using Add to Siri.

All of this information is encrypted, but you may not want to use the feature because of privacy issues or you may not want certain apps showing up on your device. For that reason, Apple has expanded privacy controls so you can customize Search and Siri Suggestions to your liking.
