How to disable explicit language for Siri

Disabling explicit language for Siri is very easy; here's how to do it.

Siri Dictation on the new iPad, as well as the iPhone 4S, is fairly accurate a majority of the time. But, as with anything software-based (let alone in beta), sometimes mistakes are made. However, when those mistakes throw out some choice four-letter words, especially when kids are present, it's not going to make people happy.

Yesterday I was asked by a reader if it was possible to disable explicit language for Siri Dictation on the new iPad. So, I decided to make a video showing how easy it is to disable explicit language for Siri on both the iPad, as well as the iPhone 4S.

By going into Settings > General > Restrictions, you can turn off explicit language and not have to worry about Siri placing a foul word into a conversation when you--or your child--is using the device.
