How to disable Siri recommendations for specific applications

IOS uses Siri’s personal assistant to memorize your usual actions in applications, and then offer useful recommendations on the lock screen of your device. Using the recommended commands you can perform your usual actions faster.

Key points:

  • Siri offers recommended commands for apps on the lock screen.
  • Siri remembers your usual actions in applications.
  • Recommended commands take up space on the lock screen.
  • You can turn off recommendations for specific applications.
  • Siri also displays recommendations in the Search and Find.

About teams Siri

The recommended Siri teams appear on all iPhones and iPads, starting with the iPhone 6s and iPad Pro. This also applies to the iPad 5 generation, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 4 models.

Siri Commands is a new application based on the Workflow application. It first appeared with the release of iOS 12 in September of this year

Commands allow you to create chains of actions and activate them with one set phrase.

About teams Siri


You can create your own commands for the applications in the Commands application, attach specific phrases to them, and then activate them with Siri.

Here is what Apple writes:

A quick command is a convenient means to perform one or more tasks in applications. Using the Quick Commands application, you can create your own quick commands from several actions. For example, you can create a fast surfing team that will collect information about breaking waves, give you an estimated time of arrival at the beach, and launch a playlist with surf music.

Teams can perform chains from any number of actions: from simply sending invitations via Messages to adding any album from Apple Music to the home screen.

Recommendations on the lock screen

If the application supports commands, Siri analyzes how you use it. Based on this analysis, Siri displays recommended commands for applications on the lock screen. If you order coffee every morning, Siri will offer a command to automatically order your favorite coffee at a specific time. Standard Apple apps also support commands.

"How do I know if my VPN is slowing me down? Learn to methodologically test your VPN's speed and what should you be expecting realistically when using a VPN software."


If you miss a friend’s call, you may be advised to call him back or send a message. Or, Siri may suggest to enable Do Not Disturb before starting a meeting.

Team support appears every day in new applications. In addition, in some applications there are even ready-made commands. Accordingly, the recommendations on the lock screen becomes more. Fortunately, you can turn off recommendations for specific applications, and below we will explain how this is done.
