Working with Siri Suggestions

Siri Suggestions can make it easy to get back to apps, searches, or other items you’ve used recently. Using Siri Suggestions can also lead you to useful things you weren’t necessarily looking for. These suggestions show up in many different areas on your iPhone and you can access them directly at any time.

To access Siri Suggestions, swipe down from the center of a Home screen. Just under the Search bar, you see the SIRI SUGGESTIONS panel. This panel shows you apps you’ve used recently or apps that might be useful to you based on your location. For example, the Starbucks app may be suggested when you are near a Starbucks location. Tap an app to open it.

Siri Suggestions can also appear in other apps. Siri monitors your activity and “learns” from what you do in order to improve the suggestions it makes. These suggestions can appear in many different places, such as when you are entering email addresses in a new email, dealing with new contact information, performing searches, editing a text message, and so on. When you see a list of Siri Suggestions, you can tap the suggestion you want to use. For example, if it is an email address, that address is entered for you. If it is a search, the search is performed.

You can enable or disable the apps and services that Siri can access to make these suggestions; the information to do this is provided in Chapter 11, “Working with Siri.” For example, if you don’t want Siri to be able to make suggestions based on a specific app, you can disable the Search & Siri Suggestions setting for that app.
