As users interact with and use iPhones and iPads, Apple collects and stores a lot of information about those users. But with the release of iOS 13.2, Apple has given users the ability to wipe this information from its servers with a few screen taps.
Here's how to find and use this feature:
- First, download and install iOS 13.2 on your iPhone or iPad
- Fire up the Settings app
- Head over to Siri & Search > Siri & Dictation History
- Tap the big, ominous-looking red button marked Delete Siri & Dictation History
- Confirm that you want to carry out this action by tapping Delete Siri & Dictation History on the popup
- You will get a message confirming that the request was received by Apple and that the information will be deleted
If you want to opt-out of sharing your voice information with Apple to improve its service, here's how you do that:
- Go to Settings > Privacy > Analytics & Improvements
- Look for Improve Siri & Dictation and toggle the switch to off
