I've disabled Siri years ago, before updating to iOS 11 and now iOS 12 on my iPhone 6S. So I don't have Siri & Search in my Settings, but I do get Siri suggestions on my lock screen after a missed call (after updating to iOS 12).

How can I get rid of the Siri suggestions on my lock screen and why do they appear if Siri is disabled?

You can disable theses suggestions by going into Settings > Siri & Search and switching "On lockscreen" off. As to why this isn't normally disabled if you disable Siri, I don't know.

    Like I said in my post, I don't have "Siri & Search" in Settings.

  • Sorry, I overlooked that. I didn't know that was even possible. You did you disable Siri and can you enable it again? If not, I would suggest resetting all settings in the general settings.
