To change Siri’s voice, open the Settings app and select “Siri & Search.” Then tap “Siri Voice” and choose your preferred voice.

The original female voice is no longer the default for Siri.

With the release iOS 14.5, Siri is now available in four different voices.

The new voice options are only available to English speakers, with more languages planned for the future.

But if you’re looking for a break from Siri’s recognizable voice, Apple gives you the option to customize it.

With the release of iOS 14.5, Apple has added two new Siri voices. Perhaps more notably, Siri will no longer default to a female-sounding voice when you set up a new device – a feature that has stirred controversy for perpetuating harmful gender stereotypes.
