How to Prevent iPhone X Side Button from Invoking Siri Accidentally

Often, I activate Siri on my iPhone X by pressing the side button involuntarily. Even as I have no intention to use Siri, I accidentally invoke the intelligent voice assistant. This frequency of opening Siri inadvertently increases when my iPhone X is in the hands of my kids. But there is a solution to stop iPhone X side button from invoking Siri accidently.

Since iPhone X doesn’t have a physical home button, side button is loaded with an extra responsibility of launching Siri. But at the same time, this side button has gained notoriety for enabling Siri accidentally. Thanks to Accessibility feature, you can now control Siri and use it only when required.
