I would like to ask you is it possible to somehow access all of Siri's history to view it or delete it?

I edited your question to make it better. "View or delete it." is not a sentence, so I combined it with the previous sentence to make a whole thought. I removed the "Thank you in advance" because that sort of stuff just clutters up the site and provides no benefit. On Stack Exchange sites, we thank the answerers by upvoting and accepting answers, which I see you did. – CajunLuke Sep 20 '12 at 16:45

Taken from the privacy file displayed when turning Siri on - off.

You may choose to turn off Siri or Dictation at any time. To turn off Siri, open Settings on your iOS device, tap General, tap Siri, and slide the Siri switch to “off”. To turn off Dictation, open Settings, tap General, tap Keyboard, and slide the Enable Dictation switch to “off”. If you turn off both Siri and Dictation, Apple will delete your User Data, as well as your recent voice input data. Older voice input data that has been disassociated from you may be retained for a period of time to generally improve Siri, Dictation and dictation functionality in other Apple products and services. This voice input data may include audio files and transcripts of what you said, related diagnostic data, such as hardware and operating system specifications and performance statistics, and the approximate location of your device at the time the request was made.

No there is no way to access Siri history. If any of it is stored, it will be stored anonymously as chunks of different words and phrases on Apple’s servers for better voice recognition.

You can delete your Siri data from Apple's servers by disabling Siri in Settings.

Go to General → Siri and disable Siri.

This will delete your history with it. You can enable it again in the future with no problem.

This seems to be correct that when you disable Siri, it also send a signal to Apple deleting your anonymized input on their servers. – bmike Feb 6 '14 at 0:06

Well, you can't or at least I didn't find any answer. However, if it was questions to ask her on internet, check the Safari history, there will be all your searches through Siri.

Thank you for your answer! Could you provide more information? When you just link to another post, that thread could move, or be removed altogether. At SE, we prefer answers to be largely independent. – bassplayer7 Dec 7 '12 at 17:06
By the way, @Arthur was asking for history - not the general questions you can ask Siri. – bassplayer7 Dec 7 '12 at 17:07
Sadly nothing in the linked discussion seems relevant... – bmike Feb 6 '14 at 0:05
The link tells the reader to press the 'i' in the Siri to see the history of all commands. This is false, the 'i' only shows examples on how to user Siri. – CousinCocaine Jul 21 '14 at 15:40
