    iPhone 8 on 11.1. These suggestion words above the keyboard RARELY pop up, but every once in a while they do, and I can't figure out what setting it would be?

    Under "Siri & Search" settings, I have:

    1) "Suggestions in Search" turned off
    2) "Suggestions in Look Up" turned off


    The only thing I can think is that I DO have "Search & Siri Suggestions" turned on for Safari, but based on the description under that, "Allow information from Safari to appear in Seach, Look Up, and Keyboard. Siri may learn from and make suggestions based on how you use this app," that doesn't really seem like it would cause suggestions in my safari keyboard?

    Or, is the "Safari Suggestions" setting under Safari? That setting is also on, could it be this?

    It happens so infrequently though that it's hard to test...and on that note I'm not sure why it pops up so infrequently, like once every few weeks at random.

    It's usually related to predictive feature of the keyboard, but even with that off these suggestions can sometimes come up in Safari in iOS 11--it seems like there's likely a bug somewhere in relation to that.

    Yes I should also note I have that predictive setting turned off as well.

    I've done as much possible to prevent suggestions. Setting restrictions, turning off Siri for EVERY app (if i had her disabled in restrictions, i would have to periodically turn back on, because the new apps downloaded will have her turned on, despite your locked setting in restrictions to have her off), safari settings turned off for suggestions, set keyboard options to off for all that stuff, even turned off spell check....yet suggestions always seem to keep coming back....really annoying

    If it's these particular ones that show up in Safari, as mentioned, it seems to be a glitch/bug of some sort, so it's not something that you can disable or get working really, until Apple changes something about it essentially.

    Do you have frequently visited sites or Safari suggestions enabled? They are located in the Settings/Safari

    I've got those disabled, but on various pages I'll still get those keyboard predictive suggestions in Safari.

    I have the same thing on my Safari new tab. My favorites or most visited websites are listed under the favorites. If you click on the bookmark icon on the top left it takes you to the bookmarks. Then click ”all” at the top of the menu and then click on favorites and see if those sites are listed there. It’s controled by Setting/ Safari/ favorites

    It seems that the question/issue isn't really about that, but about the "predictive" word suggestions appearing above the keyboard sometimes in Safari (even when related settings are disabled).

    Ahh, I misunderstood his issue. So it’s the predicted text that the problem? Sorry about that.
