When I open the Calendar app, I have some hidden calendars which I don't normally want to see.

But when I ask Siri what meetings I have, it shows me all the events. I don't need to know what my family is doing when I ask about my own meetings:

How can I hide some calendars from Siri?

Short answer: No.

No, at this moment it is not possible to hide calendars from Siri. I highly recommend you send this feedback to Apple.

A workaround would be to use a second calendar app to show the calendars of your family and use the normal calendar app only for your own calendars.

  • Unfortunately, all my calendars are with google calendar. I'll look for a work around, perhaps sharing one calendar wit another account and using that account with Calendar.app.

  • There we go - I've got the google calendar app. I disabled the calendars showing with my gmail account (left mail etc enabled) and then used the iCal link to subscribe to it manually. I can't edit events, but I can always do that in google calendar. Thanks!

Siri seems to show exactly those events, which are in one of the enabled calendars in the calendar app from apple. So if a calendar is not visible in the app, its not visible to siri either and vice versa.

If you use a second calendar app as your daily driver, you can therefore use the following workaround.

  • Setup the calendars in apples calendar app, the way you want Siri to use them.
  • Activate different calendars in your third party calendar app as needed.
