Depending on the iOS version, Siri may be activated even when the Side or Home button is pressed for less than 2 seconds.
To prevent this, try either of the following:
- When playing or pausing music, or making a phone call, make sure you are on the iPhone or iPad screen.
- On the iPhone or iPad, follow these steps to turn Siri off:
- Select Settings.
- Select Siri & Search.
- Turn off Listen for “Hey Siri”.
- Turn off Press Side Button for Siri or Press Home for Siri.
