Can You See Siri Searches on iPhone in iOS 16?

I'm sorry to report that looking up your Siri search history no longer works in iOS 15 or 16. Whether this is an intentional change made (but not announced—thanks a lot for the surprise, Apple!) or simply a bug in the current software has yet to be determined, but for now this tip will only work in iOS 14 or earlier. We'll keep you updated if this changes!

Speaking of Siri frustrations, you might want to know how to turn off Siri reading messages.

For more ways to get the most out of Siri, check out our free Tip of the Day! You'll need to enable Type to Siri to use this feature. To do this:

  1. Open your Settings app.
  2. Tap Accessibility.

    Open your settings apptap Accessibility
  3. Tap Siri.
  4. Toggle Type to Siri on.

Once you have this set up, to view your Siri history, you'll want to start as if you're doing a Siri lookup:

  1. Activate Siri by holding down the Home button (on the iPhone 8/8 Plus or earlier) or side button (iPhone X and later) or saying, “Hey, Siri.” (If you have the feature and have it turned on).

  2. While Siri is listening for your question, swipe down from the top of the screen.

  3. There’s the most recent page of your Siri conversation!

You’ll only see the conversation record for today and the most recent conversation you've had. Also, swiping can be tricky, so sometimes you might run into the issue that the last conversation shown is "Hey Siri" if you fail and have to start again; but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty easy!
