You can turn OFF or disable Siri App Suggestion on iPhone, in case you find them cluttering the screen of your iPhone or you do not find Siri App Suggestions particularly useful.
Disable Siri App Suggestions on iPhone
As you must have noticed, Siri provides App suggestions when you perform a search on your iPhone, try to open Apps during certain periods of the day or when you arrive at a particular destination.
These App suggestions are based on an analysis of how you use your device during different periods of the day and at different locations.
According to Apple, your privacy is protected as all this analysis is done right on your device and not on Apple servers.
However, if you still want to get rid of Siri App suggestions for your own reasons, you can either completely disable Siri App suggestions on your iPhone or disable Siri App Suggestions only for individual Apps.
