Apple’s virtual assistant, Siri is getting smarter and more useful over the years. Siri has received mostly positive reviews from users and experts worldwide since it made its debut back in 2011 along with the iPhone 4s. Siri is no longer exclusive feature on iPhone smartphones, as it officially made its entrance into WatchOS and MacOS Sierra, offering a whole new way to interact with apps and programs.
In iOS 10, Apple has finally opened its virtual assistant, Siri to third-party developers in an attempt to expand Siri’s functionality to enhance user experience. You now can use Siri to control many non-App apps like sending messages to people you’re connected with in LinkedIn, finding photos using keywords, ask for a ride in Uber without opening the app or searching YouTube on Apple TV.
However, at times when Siri becomes a cause of annoyance, as it is activated when you least expect or it misunderstands your point. Whatever the case you are experiencing, the best shot for getting rid of these annoyances is to cancel Siri commands. There are several ways you can use to cancel Siri commands on your iPhone, but we are going for the easiest and quickest way to do that. Here is how you can do it.
Steps to cancel Siri commands on your iPhone
Step one: The first thing you need to do is to activate Siri on your iPhone. To do this, you simply say “Hey Siri” or you can press and hold the Home button
Step two: Once Siri is now ready for your service, ask Siri to do something. For example, let’s ask Siri to set a reminder at six in the evening. However, you will say “Hey Siri, remind me to call John at six o’clock”.
Step three: Once you are done, Siri will set a reminder for 6 a.m. instead of 6 p.m. as you wish. Once you hear that, all you have to do is to tap the Siri icon and say “Cancel that alarm.” Now you can ask Siri to set your reminder at 6 p.m.
Alternatively, you can cancel Siri Commands by simply pressing the home button after you give your commands. Easy, isn’t it?
