How to delete your Siri recordings on the latest iteration of iOS


iOS 13.2 comes with improved privacy, allows you to delete your Siri history


Following the report in July claiming that Apple contractors used to listen to Siri recordings, the company responded immediately by retaining all voice recordings stating that it will only access recordings from users who opt in to provide their data. Apple has put in the effort to enhance security and privacy in the latest roll-out of iOS. 

The latest iteration comes with a more transparent way of dealing with Siri data. The company has also stopped sharing audio recordings with human staffers in order to improve the service. This privacy feature allows you to clean up Siri interactions associated with the specific iPhone or iPad from Apple server. The compiled data is not associated with the device won't be eliminated.
