How to Turn Off Siri on an iPhone 7

Siri is a voice control feature on your iPhone that you can use to answer questions, perform phone functions, and change phone settings without using your hands. It provides a convenient way to use the phone when you are otherwise unable to use your hands. IN fact, using Siri can often be faster than the traditional method of using the iPhone.

But you may not use Siri very much, to the point where it is often activated by mistake, or is causing problems. In cases such as these, it might be better to just turn off Siri on your iPhone. Fortunately this is something that is possible by adjusting a setting on the device’s Siri menu.
