Dictation feature on your iPhone or iPad may create some embarrassing situations for you. When you converse with Siri, you may mispronounce some words and Siri can misunderstand it too. And this gives birth to explicit language Siri may use only to give you an unpleasant surprise. Well, Siri is after all a machine and you have to instruct her/him not to use explicit language. So, here is how to block explicit language from Siri on your iPhone and iPad.

This feature does an excellent job as it allows and disallows some contents on your device; moreover, Restrictions ensures your privacy too. Without further ado, let me get down to how you can filter mature language for Siri and dictation.
