Apple highlighted that Apple IDs aren’t associated with the recordings and that users can turn off location data for Siri (or turn off Siri altogether) on their iPhone, iPad and other Apple devices. However, almost 65% of 9to5Mac readers said they want an option to turn off the ability for Apple to record and listen to Siri activations in our recent poll. Now, Jan Kaiser has shared an iOS profile to turn off logging of server-side Siri commands on GitHub (if you prefer to make your own profile to do this, head below).
How to stop Apple from listening to your Siri recordings
- On your iPhone or iPad, head to GitHub to download the “Prevent server-side logging of Siri commands.mobileconfig”
- Swith to the Rawview, tap Allow to download the profile
- Complete the profile installation in Settings by reviewing it and tapping Install
If you feel like there should be an easier way to achieve this, let Apple know using their Feedback form.
Kaiser also notes that you can make your own profile to restrict Siri’s logging with Apple Configurator if you don’t want to download the one shared on GitHub.
