The brand new iOS 10 is available to public now, and Siri Suggestion has been improved too. Plus, in Notification center, iOS 10 allows you to add apps to widgets including Siri App Suggestions.

Sometimes, these suggestions are not helpful or you simply want to get more free space on your Spotlight Search screen, you can easily disable Siri Suggestions as well as the Widgets in iOS 10.
